Travis Scott showed Kanye West some love during the Astroworld Festival in Houston Saturday night.
Scott, who headlined the sold out festival, surprised the crowd by bringing the Jesus Is King rapper to the stage so he could perform a few tracks, including the popular “Follow God,” according to Billboard magazine. As West came to the stage to perform, Scott also stayed onstage and supported him on the “Follow God” track as the crowd sang along.
Kanye’s Astroworld Festival performance comes a day after he released the music video for “Follow God.” In the video, Kanye hangs with his dad at the rapper’s Cody, Wyoming property, and Kanye tweeted: “My dad came to visit me at one of our ranches in Cody, Wyoming. He talked about his love for fishing, and how he could come here in the summers. It took me 42 years to realize that my dad was my best friend.”

On Saturday night, after the Astroworld performance was over, the DJ began playing the intro to West’s ultra-popular “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” and the festival crowd went into a frenzy, rapping all of the bars, as West stood onstage and watched.
West vowed not to perform secular music again, which could explain why he didn’t participate as the crowd rapped the lyrics to the song off of the Graduation album.
West hugged Scott and the two could be seen exchanging words, before Kanye motioned for the DJ to cut the beat and he left the stage, according to Rolling Stone.
During the show, Scott also featured Young Thug, Swae Lee, Gunna and Migos, who debuted their newest track with Scott and Thug during the festival performance.
Also performing at the festival was Pharrell Williams, Megan Thee Stallion, DaBaby, Marilyn Manson and Rosalia. Earlier at the festival, three people were taken to the hospital after they were trampled on in a stampede, Rolling Stone reported.
