Things are heating up in Kanye West and Drake’s feud with Kid Cudi! After the latter called out his fellow rappers on Twitter earlier this week, ‘Ye made sure to give a special rant dedicated just to him at his concert in Tampa on Sept. 14 — and it’s a good one. Watch here!
This new feud began when Kid Cudi, 32, took to Twitter to blast Drake, 29, and Kanye West, 39, calling them clowns and saying they don’t write their own music. He called them “fake” and ranted that they “don’t give a f*** about me.” Of course, Yeezy wasn’t just sitting back and letting himself get slammed, and he fired back during a concert in Tampa later that night.
“Kid Cudi, don’t ever mention ‘Ye name. I birthed you. We are all dealing with that emo shit all the time. Me, Pat, Don C. Don’t ever mention ‘Ye name. Don’t try to say who I can do songs with. You mad ’cause I’m doing songs with Drake? Ain’t nobody telling ‘Ye who to do songs with! Respect the God!”
He added, “You know how many people wish they could be signed to G.O.O.D music? Get they life changed? Have an opportunity? Never forget that! I’m so hurt. I feel so disrespected. Kid Cudi, we two black men in a racist world. I wore skinny jeans first. I got called names before you, bro. Why y’all got to be coming at me? This ain’t the end of the Malcolm X movie. I’m out here fighting for y’all, creators, artists, independent thinkers. Don’t ever mention my name in a bad manner! None of y’all!”
Kanye and Drake recently confirmed that they’re teaming up to work on new music together, so it certainly won’t be a surprise if there’s a Cudi diss track in our future. Those two together are pretty unstoppable, so the 32-year-old should probably be weary!
HollywoodLifers, whose side are you on in this feud? Do you think Kid Cudi had a valid point? Are you surprised at all that Kanye clapped back?
