Cudi Dedicates Coachella Performance To Mac Miller, Nipsey
Written by BET on April 14, 2019
Kid Cudi used his recent Coachella set to pay respects to two rappers whose deaths continue to affect the community long after their passing: Mac Miller and Nipsey Hussle.
Cudi gave the crowd a treat when he dedicated the final song of his performance, “Pursuit of Happiness,” to the late rappers.
“This next one, I wanna dedicate this to Mac Miller and Nipsey Hussle,” he told the crowd. “And I want y’all to sing this s**t as loud as y’all can, promise me.”
Miller passed on September 7, 2018, of a reported cocaine overdose, and, more recently, on March 31, 2019, Hussle was shot to death while leaving his Marathon clothing store.

Throughout his set, Cudi also went through memory lane, performing a few cult favorites from his catalog, including “Reborn” from Kids See Ghosts, “Father Stretch My Hands, Pt. 1,” and a few of his Kanye West collaborations.
