It marks the “Sicko Mode” rapper’s first time giving a public performance since the Astroworld Festival tragedy in November, which left 10 people dead.

Following the tragedy, the rapper announced in March that he launched Project HEAL, which is a “multi-tier initiative dedicated to addressing challenges facing today’s youth.”

In the caption, he revealed why he decided to start the initiative.

“While it’s easy for corporations and institutions to stay in the shadows, I feel as a leader in my community, I need to step up in times of need. My team and I created Project HEAL to take much needed action towards supporting real solutions that make all events the safest spaces they can possibly be. I will always honor the victims of the Astroworld tragedy who remain in my heart forever.”

He concluded, “Giving back and creating opportunities for the youth is something I’ve always done and will continue to do as long as I have the chance.  This program will be a catalyst to real change and I can’t wait to introduce the rest of the technology and ideas we’ve been working on. See you all so soon.”
