Kid Cudi woke up Wednesday morning with a nice sized chip on his shoulder it seems. For the moment, that’s the only plausible reason why Mr. Rager decided to go on Twitter to unload his truest thoughts regarding who’s really the best artists in rap versus those that get a little help with their pen and creativity.
“I need y’all to know I got so many haters within the industry,” he wrote in an initial tweet, “and these clowns know Im bout to crush their entire existence.” That wasn’t so bad because every rapper thinks they’re the best and their peers are wack. It’s what he said next that caused eyebrows to rise.
“Everyone thinks they’re soooo great,” Mr. Rager said. “Talkin top 5 and be having 30 people write songs for them.”
Hmm. There are only but a few top guys in rap right now. And only one of them is known for having had a battalion of people involved in the creation of a song — that would be Kanye West, Cudi’s former boss and collaborator. There’s Drake, too, but even he doesn’t use that many crutches to get by.
In case it wasn’t clear enough, Cudi started naming off those who have his respect for their work. “All my youngins out here reppin, A$AP Rocky and the whole A$AP family, Travis Scott, SuperDuper Kyle, Audio Push, Hit Boy, etc, I see yall.” And then, he went in for the kill. He wrote, “My tweets apply to who they apply. Ye, Drake, whoever. These n****s don’t give a f*ck about me. And they ain’t f***in with me.”
