Kanye West Calls Kid Cudi ‘Most Influential Artist of the Past 10 Years’

Kanye West makes peace with Kid Cudi.

Although ‘Ye and Cudder traded barbs last week, Mr. West returned with an olive branch during the Houston stop on his “Saint Pablo Tour” on Tuesday (Sept. 20).

“The most important artist of the past 10 years, the most influential, and I hope he’s doing well,” Kanye said, before reiterating. “I just wanna take this time out to say Kid Cudi is my brother and I hope he’s doing well. He’s the most influential artist of the past 10 years.”

Last week, Cudi lashed out at West and Drake in a Twitter tirade about “haters” and “clowns” in the industry. “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.”

A “hurt” and “disrespected” Yeezy fired back at “Saint Pablo’s” Tampa stop. “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!”

Rumored Cudi rival Drake, who is reportedly working on a joint project with Kanye, also responded with a dig during a stop on his “Summer Sixteen Tour.” “You getting way too high,” he said. “You need to Cud-it.”

At press time, Cudder had not responded to ‘Ye’s olive branch. His last tweet remains the final note on his original Twitter rant: “From here Ill let the music speak,” he wrote. “As you were, peace and love to my supporters and true ones.”
