Kanye West Responds to Kid Cudi: “I Birthed You! Respect the God!”
Kid Cudi stirred things up on Wednesday (Sept. 14), when he went off on a Twitter rant and called out both Kanye West and Drake in the process.
'Ye responded later in the evening, when he stopped in the middle of his show in Tampa, FL, during a stop on his "Saint Pablo Tour".
While performing "I Don't Like," Kanye stopped abruptly to address Cudi's tweets. "Kid Cudi, don't ever mention Ye name. I birthed you," he told the crowd. "We all dealing with that emo sh*t 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!"
Kanye went on to question why Cudi is dissing him, especially since he was the first to give him a shot. "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," he said. "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!"
