Kanye and Cudder are longtime collaborators. The G.O.O.D. Music brothers have recorded numerous tracks throughout the years, including “Gorgeous,” “Welcome to Heartbreak,” and “Make Her Say.” But they’ve also endured a tumultuous relationship. After criticizing each other publicly in 2016, they later squashed the beef and made amends.
“I just wanna take this time out to say Kid Cudi is my brother,” Kanye said during his “Saint Pablo Tour” in 2016. “He’s the most influential artist of the past 10 years.”
