Every so often, Kid Cudi takes his emotions to Twitter in small conversations about how he’s the best artist out right now, or how we just need to wait a little for his album so he can make it perfect, or how some people just don’t get him.
Wednesday, though, he combined nearly all those feelings into one longer rant, which included attacks toward the music industry and some of its biggest stars: Kanye West and Drake.
“I need yall to know I got so many haters within the industry and these clowns know Im bout to crush their entire existance,” he started on Twitter. (Don’t mind the typos.) “Everyone thinks they’re soooo great. Talkin top 5 and be having 30 people write songs for them. Let me tell you something. The days of fuckery are over.”
That’s when he got into specifics.
“The fake ones wont be lasting too much longer. Im the one they worry about cause they know I dont give a fuck about the corny shit they do.”
He then called out Kanye and Drake for falling into the category of people he just talked about.
“I keep silent because I dont ever wanna come off like some angry hater, but today, not only do I feel fantastic, Im feelin like taking over. My tweets apply to who they apply. Ye, Drake, whoever. These niggas dont give a fuck about me. And they aint fuckin with me. Niggas keep you close when they see how powerful you are by yourself. When they see your greatness. Out of fear. Ive been loyal to those who haven’t been to me and that ends now. Now im your threat.”
He said he didn’t speak up about any of this because he was “scared to use his voice.”
“From here Ill let the music speak. As you were, peace and love to my supporters and true ones.”
He did — in the middle of his rant — shout out some people he feels are truly genuine in supporting him, including the A$AP Mob, Kyle and Travi$ Scott. He was just featured on Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight.
All my youngins out here reppin, Asap Rocky and the whole ASAP family, Travis Scott, SuperDuper Kyle, Audio Push, Hit Boy, etc, I see yall

Kanye has supported Kid Cudi for a long, long time dating back to, you know, signing him to his label, but we also know close to nothing of what goes on behind the scenes.
