“Ill do a better and make sure to eat properly on show days," Kid Cudi tweeted afterward.

Rapper Kid Cudi collapsed during his headlining set at the North Coast Music Festival in Chicago’s Union Park on Saturday (Aug. 30) night.

While performing his 2009 song “Pursuit of Happiness,” Cudi jumped down from the stage and began running back and forth in the photo area in front of the crowd. The rapper then fainted immediately after stopping to sign an autograph for a fan.

After the show, Cudi took to Twitter to apologize to those he may have frightened and thanked security guards for assisting him.

“Ill do a better and make sure to eat properly on show days 🙂 scouts honor!” he wrote. “Mad love to the security who were there and helped me out tonight. Really awesome dudes! Thanx for nursing me back to health ha.”

Other performers at the three-day North Coast Music Festival included Bassnectar, Alesso, STS9, Nicky Romero, Snoop Dogg, Dada Life and Zeds Dead.
