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.
