Real friends, how many of us? Kanye West put a strain on his bromance with Kid Cudi because of the latter’s relationship with his wife’s new boyfriend, Pete Davidson.
As a result, Ye has decided to cut Cudi completely from his upcoming Donda 2 album. The rapper posted what appears to be a hand written note, Saturday (February 12) on his Instagram announcing Cudi’s omission.
“Just so everyone knows Cudi will not be on Donda because of his relationship with you know who,” the note reads.
He adds … “We all speak in Billie language now,” a possible reference to his recent feud with Billie Eilish, whom he demanded apologize for a perceived shade at Travis Scott and the tragedy at Astroworld.
In direct response to Kanye’s post, Cudi calls his “Kids See Ghosts” collaborator a dinosaur and offers to pray for him.
“Too bad I don’t wanna be on ur album u f-cking dinosaur hahaha. everyone knows ive been the best thing about ur albums since i met u. Ima pray for you brother.”
Cudi addressed things further on Twitter by writing … “We talked about this. You’re whack for flipping the script and posting this lie just for a look on the internet. You ain’t no friend. BYE.”
In a few additional posts, the Man On The Moon quote-replied “Very” to a fan who tweeted that Ye is “annoying af anyways.” In another post he wrote, “God opens the door so the wrong people can exit your life.”
Kanye posted on his Instagram later on that he just wanted his “FRIEND TO HAVE MY BACK THE KNIFE JUST GOES IN DEEPER.” He then upped the pettiness by posting a meme parodying the Captain America: Civil War movie poster. Future, Drake, Julia Fox, and Travis Scott are on one side. Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Kid Cudi, Kim Kardashian, and Pete Davidson are on the other side.
As you know, Cudi was once signed to Kanye’s GOOD Music label, and the two have collaborated on quite a number of tracks together including “Feel The Love,” “All Of The Lights” and “Reborn.”
It’s still unclear about who will and won’t be on Donda 2, but few days ago Ye was spotted hanging out with Drake, Travis Scott and Future at a rumored Donda 2 listening event in Los Angeles.
As for Kid Cudi’s relationship with Pete Davidson, the two became close after the “Saturday Night Live” comedian revealed that Cudi’s 2009 album Man on the Moon saved his life.
