Drake drew criticism earlier this week for mocking Cudi in a new song, ‘Two Birds, One Stone’, rapping: “You were the man on the moon / Now you just go through your phases / Life of the angry and famous“. Many fans of Cudi took these lyrics as a poorly-timed insult, given how Cudi checked himself into rehab earlier this month for ‘depression and suicidal urges’.
During his stay in rehab, Cudi has limited his Twitter activity. But in two new posts made this evening (October 28) – where he confirmed that he is still in rehab – the Cleveland rapper sent a tweet directly to Drake that seemingly referenced the ‘Two Birds, One Stone’ lyrics.
“Say it to [my] face, pussy,” Cudi wrote. “You think it’s a game. I wanna see you say it to my face. I’ll be out soon. Promise.”
Cudi also thanked his fans for the “unfathomable” love he’s received since he revealed his mental health problems. See the two tweets below.
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

The pair’s latest disagreement appears to stem from Cudi specifically calling out Drake in a series of tweets about “the fake ones” back in September.
Those tweets also specifically namechecked Kanye West, but West appeared this week to side with Cudi. During his ‘Saint Pablo’ tour stop in LA this week, West asked his audience to “sing for Cudi” during the rendition of ‘Father Stretch My Hands, Pt. 1’, which Kanye wrote with Cudi for his ‘Life of Pablo’ album.
