A week after Kanye West and Kid Cudi traded barbs, it appears the two have made peace.

Kanye took to the stage in Houston on Tuesday (Sept. 20), during a stop on his "Saint Pablo Tour", to extend an olive branch to Cudder... and praise him.

"The most important artist of the past 10 years, the most influential, and I hope he's doing well," Kanye said, before adding. "I just wanna take this time out to say Kid Cudi is my brother and I hope he's doing well. He's the most influential artist of the past 10 years."

Last week, Cudi lashed out at West and Drake in a series of Twitter updates, where he blasted the music industry as "clowns" and "haters". "My tweets apply to who they apply," he wrote. "Ye, Drake, whoever. These n*ggas dont give a f*ck about me. And they aint f*ckin with me."

Shortly after Cudi's comments, Kanye fired back while on stage at one of his tour stops, declaring: "Kid Cudi, don’t ever mention ‘Ye name. I birthed you. We all dealing with that emo sh*t all the time. Me, Pat, Don C. Don’t never mention ‘Ye name! Don’t try to say who I can do songs with. You mad ’cause I’m doing songs with Drake? Can’t nobody telling ‘Ye who to do songs with. Respect the God!"

It's unclear why Kanye had a change of heart, but Cudi has yet to reply... at least publicly.
