Kid Cudi collapses during performance at North Coast Festival
The rapper passed out during 'Up Up And Away' at the Chicago festival
The rapper was headlining the Chicago festival, with the likes of Future Islands, Little Dragon and Talib Kweli appearing earlier in the day. During 'Up Up And Away', taken from the Ohio musicians' 2009 debut album 'Man On The Moon: The End Of Day', Cudi (real name Scott Mescudi) jumped off stage and into the photo pit.
From there, Consequence Of Sound reports he ran up and down the front way, interacting with the crowd and stopping to sign a fan's album. Moments later, the rapper collapsed.
After the show, Cudi informed Twitter followers his losing consciousness was due to not having eaten before the performance, and thanked the festival's security for looking after him.
Mad love to the security who were there and helped me out tonight. Really awesome dudes! Thanx for nursing me back to health ha— Scott Mescudi (@KidCudi) August 31, 2014
