Culted Community talks: Travis Scott bringing out Kanye West in Rome

Culted Community talks: Travis Scott bringing out Kanye West in Rome

Last week we reposted a clip over on our TikTok of Travis Scott and Ye performing in Rome, which gained over 3.5 million views and sparked some pretty heated debate in the comment section. As is to be expected from two of the most controversial artists around, Ye and Travis had half of our community hyped about the performance of a lifetime, the other half sceptical that it was even real. Here’s what you had to say.

In case by some miracle you missed the reunion that basically broke the internet, on Monday night at Travis Scott’s Utopia Circus Maximus show in Rome he welcomed a familiar face onto the stage – one that we’ve seen very little of lately: Kanye West. The clip we reposted on TikTok, originally taken by user @ihategum, captured Ye and Travis Scott performing to a screaming crowd of 60,000 fans.

Travis Scott actually announced Kanye with a generous speech stating “There is no Utopia without Kanye West. There is no Travis Scott without Kanye West. There is no Rome without Kanye West.”, and plenty of people in the comment section had to agree. @mytruth27 reiterated the sentiment by saying “there is no world without kanye west” and @emanasou agreed, writing “Anyone hating simply doesn’t know their back story. Can’t be Travis scott without Kanye west.” @stevenss239 hilariously replied “yeah their bonded trauma dating kardashian”.

Other people in the comment section had bigger concerns, however, which @tripletruffles pointed out, writing “Why is everyone saying he’s a clone I’m so confused”. The conspiracy that Ye is a clone isn’t new, in fact it’s been whispered about since 2016, but a lot of our community on TikTok seem to have decided it’s true since our viral repost from Monday.

@crishel.hernandez likened Ye to a recently viral TikTok by saying “But I am telling you right now!” and likewise @elvisekeh3 was clearly quite confident that that was not Ye, commenting “Its a clone I Promise u” – OK, we’ll take your word for it. @_.andrxs_._ even came to the comment section with evidence, citing that “[Ye] said if i disappear [and] come back it’s not me”. Whether or not they’re right we’re not completely convinced, but out of the 1500+ comments under our TikTok there’s enough people arguing that’s not Ye to make a point. What do you think?
