In April of 2013 Kid Cudi left Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label. He released a statement at the time saying there were no hard feelings.
“Man, everything is cool,” the Cleveland rapper said. “Everything is peace with everybody on the label. There’s never been any issues, but I am announcing that I’m no longer on G.O.O.D. Music. And this is something that no one knows, really. I’m no longer on G.O.O.D. Music.”
On Wednesday, September 14, Cudi went on a Twitter rant that suggests he didn’t reveal his true feelings when he exited stage left.
“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 began. “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 the f*ckery are over. The fake ones wont be lasting too much longer. Im the one they worry about cause they know I dont give a f*ck about the corny sh!t they do. And all u jealous chicken hearted sh!ts I see you too. I am the culture. 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. I already have.”
Cudi then got more specific about the targets of his diatribe, when he named both Kanye and Drake.
“My tweets apply to who they apply. Ye, Drake, whoever. These n!ggas dont give a f*ck about me. And they aint f*ckin with me,” the “Day ‘N’ Night” hitmaker continued. “N!ggas 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. Anybody got a issue with my words im glad. If you feel me, dont be scared to use your voice. I was for so long out of blind loyalty. From here Ill let the music speak. As you were, peace and love to my supporters and true ones.”
