The ‘All Day’ rapper crashed his pal’s performance after The Weeknd performed a cover of Kanye’s ‘Heartless’, reports state.
Kanye then stormed the stage, launching into ‘Can’t Tell Me Nothing’, a cover of Chief Keef’s ‘I Don’t Like’ and ‘Black Skinhead’, before closing with his latest single.
While his wife Kim Kardashian gave the festival a miss, her sisters Khloe and Kendall were in attendance to see Kanye’s surprise gig.
Later this year, Kanye will make the biggest festival appearance of his career so far, when he headlines Glastonbury in June.

We think that’s pretty great.”
