Lupe Fiasco is taking his online tiff with Kid Cudi offline and on stage. During a performance in Wisconsin on Sunday night, the 33-year-old Chicago rapper kicked a freestyle dissing Cudi. “To all my enemies, you are now forgiven. Except Kid Cudi, cause that’s not my motherf*cking buddy.” Lupe continued his freestyle with a threat, rapping, “If I see him in the streets, it’s getting motherf*cking ugly.” Before the night was over, though, Kung-Fu Lu backpedaled, telling the crowd, “I’ma let that sh*t with f*cking Cudi go,” and advised fans to let go of grudges.
The two rappers first began Twitter fighting in 2014, when Cudder said Lu selling “personalized” verses to fans for $500 a pop was “sketchy.” Months later, the two got into it again over comments Kendrick Lamar made about the shooting death of Michael Brown. Cudi felt K. Dot’s comments talked down to the black community. Lupe agreed with Kendrick and defended his thoughts by blasting Cudi on Twitter, which resulted in another back-and-forth. Fast-forward to present day and Lupe still isn’t letting ish slide, kind of.
Cudi has yet to respond to Sunday’s jabs, but he probably will given how things have gone previously with these two.
