Kanye West and Drake clap back.
Hot after Kid Cudi fired off a series of tweets about Drizzy and Yeezy not “fuckin with” him, both artists have responded onstage.
‘Ye did this on the Tampa stop of his “Saint Pablo Tour” right in the middle of his “Don’t Like” performance.
“Kid Cudi, don’t ever mention ‘Ye name,” he said. “I birthed you. We all dealing with that emo shit all the time. Me, Pat, Don C. Don’t never mention ‘Ye name! Don’t try to say who I can do songs with. You mad ’cause I’m doing songs with Drake? Can’t nobody telling ‘Ye who to do songs with. Respect the God!”
That wasn’t all.
“Me and your parents is cool,” he added. “You know how many people wish they could be signed to G.O.O.D. Music, get their life changed? Have that 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,” he continued. “I got called names before you, bruh. Why y’all coming at me? 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!”
Meanwhile, Drake reportedly referenced Cudi while performing in Oakland on his “Summer Sixteen Tour.”
Some say Drizzy possibly referred to Cudder’s substance abuse troubles with a nod to O.T. Genasis’ “Cut It.”
“Boy, you getting way too high,” he said. “You need to cut it.” Others have claimed he says, “You need to Cudi,” in the clip.
Yesterday, the Man on the Moon went on a vicious Twitter tirade in which he criticized Drake and Kanye by name.
“I need yall to know I got so many haters within the industry and these clowns know Im bout to crush their entire existance,” he tweeted. “Everyone thinks they’re soooo great. Talkin top 5 and be having 30 people write songs for them.
“My tweets apply to who they apply,” he added. “Ye, Drake, whoever. These ni**as dont give a fuck about me. And they aint fuckin with me,” he wrote. “Ni**as keep you close when they see how powerful you are by yourself. When they see your greatness. Out of fear.”
