The beef between Kanye West and Kid Cudi made new leaps last night as Kanye replied Cudi’s twitter tirade.
A day ago Kid Cudi took to Twitter today to establish his dominance in the game, specifically over Kanye, Drake and “the fake ones.” The Cleveland artist expressed his frustration with rappers who reach mainstream success while having teams of songwriters behind them, contrasting himself as someone who has true creativity.
“I am the culture,” he says in a series of posts. “I keep silent because I dont ever wanna come off like some angry hater, but today, not only do I feel fantastic, Im feelin like taking over I already have My tweets apply to who they apply. Ye, Drake, whoever. These nigg*s dont give a fuck about me. And they aint f*ckin with me. Nigg*s keep you close when they see how powerful you are by yourself. When they see your greatness. Out of fear.”
Kanye has replied! In his Tampa Show for the Saint Pablo tour, Kanye pumped the brakes on the performance to hit out at the Kid,
“Kid Cudi, don’t never mention Ye name,” he bellowed, much to the surprise of the Amalie Arena crowd as he proceeded to speak for several of the Cleveland native’s longtime collaborators.
“I birthed you!” he continued. “We all dealing with that emo shit all the time. Me, [Plain] Pat, Don C. Don’t never mention Ye name! You mad because I’m doing songs with Drake? Can’t nobody tell Ye who to do songs with! Respect … the god!”
He then went on to express how being signed to Good Music was a privilege — one that wasn’t valued from the creator of “Day ‘n Nite.” Yeezy also compared the attacks to the end of Spike Lee’s Malcolm X biopic where the Civil Rights leader was slain by his own kind.
“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, bruh,” he cried.
