The beef between Drake and fellow rapper Kid Cudi is heating up. Earlier this week, Drake released a diss track that seemed to mock Cudi’s mental health issues, which he recently spoke out about when he told fans he was heading to rehab for “depression and suicidal urges.”
On Friday, Kid Cudi responded to Drake in a tweet, writing, “Say it to [my] face pussy. You think it’s a game. I wanna see you say it to my face. I’ll be out soon. Promise.”
Drake’s new song, “Two Birds, One Stone,” was written in response to Kid Cudi calling the Toronto rapper and Kanye West out on Twitter last month. In the track, he makes a reference to Cudi’s 2009 debut album Man on the Moon: “You were the man on the moon, now you go through your phases/Live for the angry and famous.”
When Cudi originally announced that he would head to rehab, he wrote to fans on Facebook, “I simply am a damaged human swimming in a pool of emotions everyday of my life. Theres a ragin violent storm inside of my heart at all times. Idk what peace feels like. Idk how to relax.”
Drake has yet to respond to Cudi’s most recent tweet, but Cudi thanked his fans for the outpouring of support he’s received since checking into rehab and opening up about his mental health.
“The love has been unfathomable. I look forward to hearing, breathing and feeling it all at ComplexCon Nov 5th. Love and back to rehab. – Cud”
