Kanye West Performs for First Time Since Antisemitic Comments

Kanye West is back to business! Not long ago, the Good Morning rapper hit the stage for the first time since his antisemitic remarks. He recently joined Travis Scott on stage for his Utopia Concert that took place at Rome’s Circus Maximus.

While introducing Ye to the audience, Scott referred to the controversial rapper-turned-fashion designer as the “only one human being on this mother f—king planet that has ever walked side by side with me through anything and every mother f—king thing.”

Kanye West makes surprise appearance at Travis Scott’s Rome concert

On Monday night, Travis Scott brought his close pal and collaborator Kanye West to the stage during his show in Rome. This is the first time that the Donda rapper has been spotted performing on stage since his antisemitic rants which started in October 2022.

Ye performed the songs Praise God and Can’t Tell Me Nothing for the crowd. Scott told the audience, “There is no ‘Utopia’ without Kanye West. There is no Travis Scott without Kanye West. There is no Rome without Kanye West. Make some noise for Ye.”

It looked like West was a bit out of practice as he missed out on most of the lyrics. However, he got saved by the backing track. As per a video of his performance that has popped up on the internet, he sang the song Can’t Tell Me Nothing, a song from his 2007 album Graduation.

Along with this, the Grammy winner also performed Praise God from his 2021 album Donda. Apart from their musical collaborations, Kanye and Scott are also related by way of the mothers of their kids.

The Atlanta-born rapper was previously married to Kim Kardashian. The former couple shares four kids: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm. On the other hand, when we talk about Travis, he has welcomed two kids with Kim’s youngest sister, Kylie Jenner.

For those of you who are unversed, let us tell you, that in October 2022, the Yeezy founder took the world of social media by storm when he shared on Twitter that he wanted “to go death con 3 ON JEWISH PEOPLE.”

At that point in time, Kanye said, “The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew.” In a series of now-deleted tweets, he further added, “Also You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda.”

Then, the Flashing Lights hitmaker also shared screenshots of chats between himself and Diddy. One of his messages read, “Ima use you as an example to show the Jewish people that told you to call me that no one can threaten or influence me.”

Kanye previously praised Hitler and alleged that the Jewish media had blocked him. Soon after the musician’s antisemitic remarks, many renowned brands like Adidas, Balenciaga, and Gap cut their ties with him.
