Kid Cudi is back in the rap game thanks to the recent premieres of his songs "The Frequency" and "All In," but he's also back in the trash-talking business as well. In a new interview, Cudi explained that the music he hears today underwhelms him and he doesn't get the hype around popular artists like Drake, Future and the like.
Cudi sat down with Billboard to discuss his new music, and the state of the hip-hop world as he sees it. According to him, some past Twitter comments he said were not in regards to What a Time to Be Alive by Drake and Future, but he isn't afraid to talk about it now.
I look around like, 'This is what y'all think is the best? This sh*t is not that dope.' But I'm pretty quiet on my Twitter nowadays," he explained, according to The Smoking Section. "I made a comment about mediocrity in music on Twitter, around the time Drake and Future put out [2015's What a Time to Be Alive]. People were like, 'Cudi's talking sh*t!' I'm appalled any of y'all think I even sat down and listened to that sh*t. (Laughs.) I wasn't talking about that at all! But if the shoe fits... N-s are so guilty that they know it's them. I didn't even know they had a project. I tweeted that, put my phone down and walked away. Next time I pick it up, I'm in the news! They say I'm ranting; a rant means you care. I don't care like that."
Whether or not you agree with Cudi is up to you, but you can listen to his newest track, "All In," right here:
