Kanye West Responds to Kid Cudi’s Diss: “I Birthed You”
On Wednesday (Sept. 14), Kid Cudi posted a series of tweets about fake people in the industry. He named Kanye West and Drake specifically – “Everyone thinks they’re soooo great. Talkin top 5 and be having 30 people write songs for them [...] Ye, Drake, whoever. These niggas dont give a fuck about me. And they aint fuckin with me."
The same night, Kanye West addressed Cudi's insult during his Saint Pablo show in Tampa. You can see footage of Kanye's response above and below.
"Kid Cudi, don't ever mention 'Ye name. I birthed you," says 'Ye above. "We all dealing with that emo shit all the time; me, Pat, Don C. Don't ever mention 'Ye name. Don't try to say who I can do songs with. You mad 'cause I'm doing songs with Drake. Ain't nobody telling 'Ye who to do songs with. Respect the God!"
In the video below, he says, "You know how many people wish they could be signed to G.O.O.D. Music, get they life changed? Have that opportunity? Never forget that. I'm so hurt. I feel so disrespected. Kid Cudi, we're two black men in a racist world. I wore skinny jeans first. I got called names before you, bruh. Why y'all got to come at me? This ain't the end of the Malcolm X movie. I'm out here fighting for y'all: creatives, artists, independent thinkers. Don’t never mention my name in a bad manner. None of y’all!”
