It appears that recently, Kid Cudi’s love and respect for Kanye West were put to the test. After Kanye announced on Instagram that Cudi was no longer a member of the eagerly awaited Donda sequel because he had sided with Billie Eilish, their relationship deteriorated.
Kid Cudi is giving fans a close-up view of where he is in his life, both personally and professionally, months after their alleged feud. Cudi discusses a range of subjects, including his mental journey and his time in treatment back in 2016, in-depth in a new cover story interview for Esquire.
It should be noted that Cudi was interviewed for this brand-new cover story back in June. Surprisingly, Cudi makes a number of statements on his views toward Ye at various points throughout the film. As has been widely reported, most recently, the two appear to have broken up their previous friendship after Cudi became embroiled in Ye’s public issue involving Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson earlier this year.
Cudi said in an interview with Esquire about the situation at the time that it would take “a motherf*ckng miracle” for him and Ye to become friends again this time. He doesn’t actually see it happening. When Cudi stated, “Ye’s “going’ have to become a monk,” he struck Ye hard.
“I’m not one of your kids, I’m not Kim. It don’t matter if I’m friends with Pete or not friends with Pete. None of this shit had anything to do with me. If you can’t be a grown man and deal with the fact that you lost your woman? That’s not my f*ck!ng problem.”
Today, Cudi claimed, he doesn’t put up with “bad vibes.” And he has witnessed individuals being repeatedly “burned by Ye,” just for them to quickly forgive him. Keep checking Gistpaper for updates.
