The rapper, who is 38 years old, took a step back during his performance at the Rolling Loud Miami festival on Friday after being hit in the face with a bottle.
After being hit, the “Pursuit of Happiness” rapper told the audience, “Yo, I will walk off this stage if y’all throw one more f—— thing up here.” He continued, “I will leave right now.”
You are ruining [it] for everybody. If I get hit with one more f—— thing, if I see one more f—— thing on this f—— stage I’m leaving. Don’t f— with me.Kid Cudi
As he concluded his remark, another thing was tossed next to him just as it had been before. After then, the rapper left the stage, cutting his performance short.
The dissatisfaction felt by fans of the rapper led them to take their concerns on social media. One person tweeted, “The hatred directed toward Kid Cudi is honestly embarrassing and terrible af.” “Dude, you don’t deserve any of that simply because your favorite artist chose not to perform,” the other person said.
Kid Cudi was chosen as the festival’s headliner when Kanye West backed out at the last minute. The intended headlining act, Kanye West, backed out his performance at the festival at the eleventh hour “due to circumstances outside of our control,” according to a statement released by the festival. As a result, Kid Cudi was invited to play in his place.
To everyone’s astonishment, Ye did in fact perform at the event, when he showed up in the middle of Lil Durk’s set to do a surprise set of his own.
Kanye West didn’t stick around for very long, but as soon as he emerged, the crowd went absolutely bananas. The rap artist gave a performance of the song “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1,” which was initially a collaboration with Kid Cudi. This might be interpreted as a jab at the rapper, which would indicate that their fight is still going strong.
