We love Kid Cudi’s just-released track ‘Too Bad I Have to Destroy You Now’ — but did the former G.O.O.D Music artist take a jab at ex-mentor Kanye West in the new song?
Kid Cudi has publicly declared that he’s cool with Kanye West and he still wants to work with him, even after leaving Yeezy’s G.O.O.D Music in April, 2013. But in Kid’s new song, “Too Bad I Have To Destroy You Now,” he seems to take a jab at Yeezy! Could this be the beginning of a new rap feud?
Kid Cudi & Kanye West Fight Rekindled? — Possible West Diss In Cudi’s New Song
Kid Cudi, 30, seems to be opening up about his past experiences with Kanye, 36, in his new song, and it certainly sounds like he’s got some animosity towards his former mentor. Check out these suggestive lyrics from “Too Bad I Have To Destroy You Now”:
“Things changed, for the good
He watched my back until the world started knowin’ my name
This should be in the Bible, middle finger up to the people who don’t like you
Who have no valid reason to say they never liked you.”
Whoa — it sounds like Kid Cudi is implying that Kanye isn’t happy about his protege’s success!
Kid Cudi Releases Most Impressive Album Yet
Well, if there’s any bad blood left between Kid Cudi and Kanye, it looks like Kid got the last laugh. The hip hop artist has everyone taking about his new album Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon, and from what we can tell it’s on fire! The new album features KC’s trademark sounds with a bit of a modern twist.
“I just know that people are really gonna love this music [because] it’s perfect and brings them right back to the Man on the Moon theme,” Kid Cudi said in an interview MTV. “It starts where Indicud left off perfectly, and takes you right into MOTM III. It’s like a TV show that ends with that cliffhanger.
“The album ends that way, where you get that one song and before you know it, the song is over and the album is over, but there’s a ‘to be continued…’ There’s more to the story,” Kid added.
So what do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is Kid Cudi dissing Kanye in his new song? Let us know!
