Kanye West hits back at Kid Cudi: 'I birthed you'

Kanye West’s relationship with Kid Cudi has been deteriorating publicly since about 2013, when Cudi decided it was time to leave G.O.O.D. Music.

It led to a feud between the pair when Cudi’s vocals were used by his former mentor on 2014′s Yeezus, and there’s definitely no love lost, especially following recent events.

The Cleveland artist took to Twitter to fire shots in the direction of Ye, and other big names like Drake, with comments such as “the fake ones won’t be lasting too much longer”. Kanye replied almost immediately, and seemed a little hurt by the call-out.

“Me and yo parents is cool. You know how many people wish they could be signed to G.O.O.D. Music, and get their life changed?” Kanye said.

“I’m so hurt. I feel so disrespected. Kid Cudi, we’re two black men in a racist world. I wore the skinny jeans first! I got called names before you bruh. Why y’all gotta be coming at me? This aint the end of the Malcolm X movie! I’m out here fighting for y’all! Creatives! Artists! Independent thinkers! Don’t ever mention my name in a bad manner! None of y’all! … I birthed you!”

Cudi’s Twitter rant complained about goings on in the music industry, ahead of the release of two new albums. There were thinly veiled jabs towards Drake, as well as complaints about a lack of support from the industry, before he said he’d let the music do the rest of the speaking.

Let’s hope the fire he showed in his comments is also felt on the albums, the first of which is expected out this month.
