Kid Cudi and Drake seem like they should be friends, but things have been unraveling over the past month. Things just started to heat up in the past few days when Drake included an apparent diss in a new song from More Life titled "Two Birds One Stone." He defended it on Instagram and now Kid Cudi's manager has called out the "One Dance" rapper for his words.
The beef started when Kid Cudi called out rappers who use large teams to help assemble their music, notably to help write. He specifically named Drake and Kanye West as examples. Cudi and Kanye appeared to patch things up, but Drake took things to heart and responded on "Two Birds One Stone."
"You were the man on the moon / Now you just go through your phases / Life of the angry and famous / Rap like I know I'm the greatest / Then give you the tropical flavors / Still never been on hiatus / You stay xanned and perced up," he rapped.
Once this was aired on OVO Sound Radio, fans started to realize it was about Cudi who has checked himself into a rehab facility for depression and "suicidal thoughts." It became an issue because it attacked a man who is actually facing a real illness, one that plagues many Americans and isn't well understood or accepted like other physical ailments. It felt like he was kicking Cudi while he was down.
Drake did not walk back his comments, responding to someone in his mentions on Instagram, "Mans need to stop mentioning my name when they get geeked," he wrote via Spin, "supposed to be all love out here word to my bro Pablo."
Kid Cudi's manager took offense to all of this, calling the Toronto rapper "corny as f*ck" and asking "How Aubrey and his writers take a shot with the same hands they used to beg for a feature???" He probably could also ask what happened to the Blue Jays in the ALCS.
Drake corny as fuck
