Kanye West and Drake Clap Back at Kid Cudi Following Twitter Rant
The “Pursuit of Happiness” rapper launched into his Twitter rant on Wednesday (Sept. 14, 2016), alleging West and Drake use ghost writers for their songs. Cudi, who has collaborated with West on a few hit tracks and is signed to his G.O.O.D. Music label, tweeted that the “days of the f**kery are over.”
Cudi continued, “My tweets apply to who they apply. Ye, Drake, whoever. These n***as dont give a f**k about me. And they aint f**kin with me. Ive been loyal to those who haven’t been to me and that ends now. Now im your threat.” All right then.
“Do you know how many people wish they could be signed to G.O.O.D. 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,” West said.
He added, “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.”
That didn’t seem to faze Kid Cudi, who later tweeted:
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.

Drake also commented on Cudi’s rant on Wednesday night at his tour stop in a less direct but clever way. “Boy, you getting way too high, you need to Cud-it,” he said to the crowd, referencing O.T. Genasis’ “Cut It.”
The “Hotline Bling” rapper reportedly added, “I heard boys were talking down today. Shout out to my brother Kanye West. We both got sold-out shows.”
