Days after blasting Drake and Nick Cannon, it was all about family for Kanye West on Sunday afternoon (Sept. 23). Kanye and his son, Saint West, appeared at the Guaranteed Rate Field to throw out the first pitch before the Chicago White Sox vs. Chicago Cubs game. Wearing a White Sox jersey and a pair of unreleased adidas Yeezy 700 V2s, Kanye was all smiles walking onto the field as his “Homecoming” classic played in the stadium. In Chicago Bulls gear, Saint looked on as his dad threw a strike down the middle before the crosstown matchup.

The appearance comes after Kanye recently announced he will be returning home, living in Chicago. The rapper/designer has two albums on the way, Good Ass Job with Chance the Rapper, and Yandhi on September 29th.

The 2018 NFL season kicks off on Thursday night (Sept. 6) with a matchup between the Super Bowl Chammpion Philadelphia Eagles and the Atlanta Falcons. Ahead of the new season, Jermaine Dupri and Ludacris team up for a new remix of their “Welcome to Atlanta” smash-hit from 2002, this time dedicated to Falcons fans around the world.

“Atlanta, and the Falcons basically go hand in hand,” said JD when speaking about the song. “We’ve always been a city that people tried to count out of being a city. I remember when I first started making music, there use to be these T-shirts that you could get at certain places that would say ‘London, Tokyo, Chicago and New York’ or something like that. That’s what they used to say on the front, they would never say ‘ATL.’ They would never say Atlanta. I’m like Chicago? Then I saw another one say, ‘Los Angeles, London, Chicago, New York’. Never Atlanta.” Starring players from their hometown team including NFL MVP Matt Ryan, watch below.
