The full 2019 Coachella lineup is expected to be released in January. Glover and West have both performed at the musical extravaganza before. The Atlanta star hit the stage in 2012, while the Yeezy designer previously headlined in 2011 following a shorter appearance in 2006.

Glover took on West in several settings this year. Not only did the Community alum poke fun at the “I Love It” rapper’s tweetstorms during a May episode of Saturday Night Live (the 21-time Grammy winner responded with laugh-cry emojis), but he also included an image of West receiving a hug from Michelle Obama in his animated “Feels Like Summer” music video in September.

News of West’s role at Coachella comes amid a fresh Twitter rant on Thursday, December 13. The “Gold Digger” rapper spoke out about his feud with Drake and accused the Degrassi alum of trying to reach out to members of wife Kim Kardashian’s family. “Still need that apologetics’s for mentioning the 350s and trying to take food out your idols kids mouths. Been trying to meet with you for 6 months bro,” he tweeted. “You sneak dissing on [Travis Scott] records and texting Kris [Jenner] talking about how’s the family.”
