Cudder put on a lit show at the Sahara Tent, which featured the Kids See Ghosts rapper running through bangers from his catalog. During a break in the action, he addressed the crowd before rolling into his 2009 hit “Pursuit of Happiness.”
“This next one. I wanna dedicate this to Mac Miller and Nipsey Hussle,” he told attendees. “And I want y’all to sing this shit as loud as you can. Promise me. Can I get a yeah?” After the crowd offered confirmation, Cudi banged out the track while those in attendance barked out every single line with a noticeable conviction.
2019 Coachella has featured multiple dedications to Mac and Nipsey. Childish Gambino paid homage to both rappers during his headlining set on day one of the musical showcase. He also debuted a new track. Anderson .Paak dedicated a rendition of “Dang!” to both artists during his Friday night (April 12) set.
The show continues Sunday (April 14) and the following weekend. Sunday’s lineup includes performances from Pusha-T, Khalid, Bad Bunny, YG, Playboi Carti, H.E.R, Blood Orange, Kaytranada, SOB X RBE, Rico Nasty and more.
