Kanye West drove Coachella fans wild as he made two surprise appearances during the opening night of the Californian music festival.
The rapper joined A$AP Rocky on stage on Friday, performing “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1” from West’s The Life of Pablo album to a delighted crowd. However, Billboard reports that Weat was hit by technical problems, and his mic stopped working a mere 10 words into the track.
West kept rapping, unaware of the issue, while the crowd rushed close to the stage to get a glimpse of the rap superstar. The pair wanted to play one more track, but the sound was cut as A$AP had already overrun his allotted time slot, NME reports.
West wasn’t his only surprise guest during his set, as he brought out Black Hippy member ScHoolboy Q to perform their track “Electric Body,” which fortunately wasn’t hit with any mic malfunctions.
Later on Friday night, “Gold Digger” hitmaker Weat took to the stage again to make his second surprise appearance at the music festival, this time during the hugely popular set from Skrillex and Diplo’s supergroup, Jack U.
Diplo announced West’s arrival during the track “Power,” whipping fans into a frenzy. However, the rapper simply stood soaking in the audience’s applause, then exited the stage, according to Billboard.
The music festival continues on Saturday at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, with rockers Guns N’ Roses headlining.
