A$AP Rocky performed at the Real Street Festival in Anaheim, California over the weekend, marking his first gig since being released from Sweden earlier this month. During the performance the 30-year-old rapper vented about his incarceration, telling the crowd how humbled and grateful he continues to be for their unwavering support.

“Y’all know how happy I am to be here right now,” Rocky said (around the 18 minute mark). “I wanna say this, though: When I was away — hold the mosh please, this a sentimental moment! — what I experienced was crazy. It was a scary, humbling experience, but I’m here right now."

He continued to say he couldn't thank people enough for being there for him when times got bleak. "God is good. People who ain’t even fuck with me felt sympathy. People was praying for me. That uplifted me when my spirits was low. That was crazy. Hip-hop never looked so strong together.”

The moment was captured in the full set video below, which also includes cameos from Tyler, the Creator (around 13 minutes) who popped up to perform "Who Dat Boy" and "Earfquake." YG and A$AP Ferg also appear.
