Kid Cudi performed his first concert since entering rehab last month at California’s ComplexCon on Saturday night — and he did so alongside Pharrell and Travis Scott. 

The rapper performed a number of hits from his catalog, including “Pursuit of Happiness,” “Frequency,” and “Erase Me.” With Pharrell and Scott by his side, he also whipped out songs like “Surfin’,” “Through the Late Night,” and “Way Back.” 

In a message to his fans on Facebook, Cudi (a.k.a. Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi) revealed he had checked himself into rehab earlier in October over “depression and suicidal urges.” He mentioned the ComplexCon performance, writing, “If all goes well ill be out in time for Complexcon and I’ll be lookin forward to seeing you all there for high fives and hugs.”

Cudi released the music video for “Surfin'” last week, flaunting the latest single from his upcoming album Passion, Pain, & Demon Slayin’. Pharrell features on the track, while A$AP Rocky, Jaden and Willow Smith, Chip the Ripper, and more celebs appear in the video.
