On Wednesday night, the "Pursuit of Happiness" rapper launched into a Twitter rant aimed at the "Famous" star and Drake. In a series of tweets alleging they use ghost writers for their rhymes, Cudi warned, "The days of the f--kery are over." Cudi and West have both featured each other on their past hit tracks, including "Erase Me," "All of the Lights," and most recently, The Life of Pablo's "Father Stretch My Hands." West signed Cudi to his GOOD Music label in 2008.
"My tweets apply to who they apply. Ye, Drake, whoever," Cudi called out. "These n---as dont give a f--k about me. And they aint f--kin with me," he wrote. "Ive been loyal to those who haven't been to me and that ends now. Now im your threat."
Anybody got a issue with my words im glad. If you feel me, dont be scared to use your voice. I was for so long out of blind loyalty.— The Chosen One (@KidCudi) September 14, 2016
However, West was not going to just let his insults slip by. During a show on his Life of Pablo tour Wednesday night, he hit back while calling Cudi out by name.
"Do you know how many people wish they could be signed to GOOD Music, get their life changed, have an opportunity? Never forget that! I am so hurt. I feel so disrespected. Kid Cudi, we are two black men in a racist world," he said into the mic.
"I got called names before you, bruh. Why y'all gotta 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 never mention my name in a bad manner, none of y'all."
Drake, who was also in concert Wednesday night, used the stage to offer a clever response. "Boy, you getting way too high, you need to Cud-it," he said to the crowd, referencing O.T. Genasis' "Cut It."
"I heard boys were talking down today," Drake reportedly also told the crowd. "Shout out to my brother Kanye West. We both got sold-out shows."
