Kid Cudi Pays Tribute to Kurt Cobain, Chris Farley on ‘SNL’

Kid Cudi paid tribute to Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain and Saturday Night Live great Chris Farley during his musical guest debut on the long-running NBC sketch comedy show.

During the April 10 episode hosted by actress Carey Mulligan, the 37-year-old rapper — born Scott Mescudi — performed two tracks from his 2020 album, Man on the Moon III: The Chosen, while paying his respects to the fallen legends.

For his first performance of “Tequila Shots,” Cudi stepped onto the stage wearing a fuzzy olive-green cardigan similar to the one Cobain famously wore during Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged in New York live performance, which aired months before his death in 1994. Underneath, he rocked a white shirt emblazoned with a headshot of the boisterous actor-comedian Farley, who was an SNL cast member in the 1990s. Farley died at age 33 in December 1997.
