Following a twitter rant from Kid Cudi where he accused both Drake and Kanye West of using ghost writers for their songs., the two rappers have responded during live performances.
“The days of the f–kery are over,” the 32-year-old “Pursuit of Happiness” rapper tweeted on Wednesday (September 14), adding, “The fake ones wont be lasting too much longer.” “My tweets apply to who they apply. Ye, Drake, whoever. These ni–as dont give a f–k about me. And they aint f–kin with me,” he went on. “Ive been loyal to those who haven’t been to me and that ends now. Now im your threat.”
During his "Saint Pablo" performance last night, Kanye warned Cudi. "Kid Cudi don’t ever mention Ye name..I birthed you…we all dealing with that emo shit all the time…me, [Plain] Pat, Don C. Don’t ever mention ‘Ye name, don’t try to say who I can do songs with. You mad because I’m doing songs with Drake, can’t nobody tell ‘Ye who to do songs with. Respect the God. You know how many people wish they could be signed to G.O.O.D. Music, get they life changed? Have that opportunity? Never forget that. I'm so hurt. I feel so disrespected,” he said. “Kid Cudi, we're two black men in a racist world. I wore skinny jeans first. I got called names before you, bruh. Why y'all got to come at me?”
He concluded: “This ain't the end of the Malcolm X movie. I'm out here fighting for y'all: creatives, artists, independent thinkers. Don’t never mention my name in a bad manner. None of y’all!”
During his "Summer Sixteen" show Drake made a play on words using O.T. Genasis' "Cut It" as inspiration. "Boy, you getting way too high, you need to Cud-it," he told the crowd.
