Cudi unleashed an unexpected assault on the Rap game yesterday that turned out to be eventually directed at Kanye and Drake After calling out artists for their fakery and corniness. Cudi went to further solidify himself as the lonely stoner, nothing that neither of the top-ranking emcees targeted were fucking with him. Not long ago,Cudi was featured on TLOP’s hottest tracks, which came after what can be described as a reconciliation between Cudder and his one-time mentor, Ye. Now, for reasons unbeknownst to most, their relationship is back in a precarious position. Cudi has quietly built a reputation for being an outspoken critic of the game and its mainstream persona but it wasn’t until this last rant that Cudi has full blown blasted artists to this degree.
The two artists have returned fire on tour stops since initial assault.
Cudi ended his rant saying he’d let the music speak from now on, leaving the tension between he and the two maestros on a cliffhanger. The former G.O.O.D. Music artist is expected to release an album Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’ before September’s end. Speculation can lead one to suggest that Cudi reached out to the two artists, both of whom he’s collaborated with in the past, for a feature or assistance to no avail leading to his lashing out but nothing’s clear at this time.
Shitting on Ye, Drizzy and other artists for concerted efforts on song, Cudi comes off as a bit of hypocrite, as he was just featured on his mentee, Travis Scott’s album which released just weeks ago. Way Back, on which Travis interpolates a “Day N Night” verse, credits Cudi and 8 other artists.
Whatever the case, Cudi doesn’t seem all too disgusted with the game’s state, shouting out Scott, Super Duper Kyle, A$AP Rocky and more amidst his rant.
