On Saturday, fans at Adidas’ 747 Warehouse event in Los Angeles were in awe when Kanye West showed up for a quick performance. He joined Kid Cudi on stage to perform “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1” during the NBA All-Star Weekend show.
This is Kanye West’s second public performance since his hospitalization in 2016. Last November, he showed up at a Kid Cudi show in Chicago. Kanye’s appearance during the NBA All-Star weekend event came a few days after he got back on Instagram. On Valentine’s Day, he shared a post directed at his wife Kim Kardashian-West and the next day, he deactivated his account. Prior to his brief online comeback, West had been off social media since May 2017 when he deactivated his Twitter and Instagram accounts. Although he’s been out of the public eye, the G.O.O.D. Music founder has been working on a new album for months. According to TMZ, West was actually seen leaving his Calabasas studio with A$AP Rocky before the surprise appearance at the Adidas event.
