Yesterday (Sept. 15), Cudi shared his very deep feelings about the industry, and more specifically, rappers who think they’re better than everyone else. After tweeting for a while, he finally got straight to the point, and mentioned that he was specifically talking about Kanye West and Drake.
“My tweets apply to who they apply. Ye, Drake, whoever,” Cudi wrote. “These n—-a dont give a f— about me. And they aint f—in with me. N—-s keep you close when they see how powerful you are by yourself. When they see your greatness. Out of fear.”
‘Ye and Drake are both on tour —the Saint Pablo tour and Summer Sixteen tour respectively — and of course, they both had something to say about Cudi’s Twitter feelings. Kanye went on a long lecture. He seems to think Cudi’s just mad because he’s doing a collaboration project with Drake, and that Cudi needs to get out of his feelings about it.
“I birthed you,” Kanye reminded him, before going on to preach about being grateful for opportunities, racism, skinny jeans and Malcolm X.
However, Drake kept his response short, sweet and in true Drake fashion, subliminal.
“Boy you getting way too high you need to cut it,” Drizzy said on stage last night. The line references O.T. Genasis’ single “Cut It,” which, if pronounced a certain way, can sound like “Cudi.” Get it? Sneak diss Drizzy strikes again.
For his part, Cudi’s Twitter timeline has been quiet since yesterday afternoon when he finished his emotional venting.
Check out Drake’s response below.
