Kanye West isn't letting last week's fall keep him from the stage. Over the weekend, the rapper made a guest appearance during Prince's headlining set at the Way Out West festival, in Gothenberg, Sweden.

Kanye rocked the mic and chanted, "Everybody put your hands in the sky right now. Say hell yeah!" while Prince played guitar alongside his band The New Power Generation. 'Ye's surprise appearance took place during the Prince hit "If I Was Your Girlfriend." In addition to sharing his stage with Kanye, Prince allowed audience members on stage as well, allowing himself and Kanye to be mobbed during their performance.

This was the first time the two artists have collaborated on stage, though Kanye sampled Prince's "It's Gonna Be Lonely" on the song "Big Brother" off his Graduation album.
