Kanye West returned to the stage for the first time since his mental breakdown nearly a year ago. Rapper Kid Cudi surprised his fans by bringing out the 40-year-old music producer at a concert in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois.
The two rappers teamed up to perform “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1.” at the Aragon Ballroom.
The track is off Kanye’s critically acclaimed Life of Pablo album, which he was promoting on tour when he suffered a breakdown and was admitted to the hospital.
Kanye’s last concert was November, 2016 in Sacramento, California, where he arrived late and performed for just 15 minutes before interrupting his set to attack former friends Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce.
Jay-Z would later say he missed “the old Kanye”.
Saturday night’s performance with Kid Cudi also marked the official end of the two rapper’s 2016 feud, which ended with Cudi entering rehab for depression and suicidal ideations.
