If you're like me, you’ll spend the entire weekend kicking the shit out of yourself for not buying tickets to the 2019 edition of Travis Scott's ASTROWORLD Festival following the last-minute reveal of the stacked and inspiringly versatile lineup.
Joining Gucci Mane, Migos, Megan Thee Stallion, Young Thug, Rosalía, and more is none other than the God of Fuck himself i.e. the indisputable Antichrist Superstar and frequent Lil Uzi Vert-inspirer Marilyn Goddamn Manson.
Manson, fresh off a tour and the release of his take on "God's Gonna Cut You Down," has become a repeatedly cited source of influence for many current wave rap artists in recent years. Back in 2018, he was joined on the lineup for the Voodoo Music & Arts Experience festival by ASTROWORLD crafter Travis Scott, though the two sadly failed to flip the above photo-op into a full-blown collab.
While we wait for additional word on Manson's previously teased collab project with Lil Uzi Vert (who's tragically not a part of ASTROWORLD Fest 2019 festivities), let's do that thing where we look at reaction tweets embedded into an article instead of just perusing them on actual Twitter. Fucking love to do that shit.
Hopefully Manson remains an ASTROWORLD Festival staple in the years ahead. And if you're new to the Mansonverse and want to prep for Saturday's set so as to ensure well-informed moshery, I suggest starting with the 1996-released Antichrist Superstar.
