Kanye West tells Kid Cudi after Twitter rant: ‘I birthed you. Respect the God’

West hits back after Cudi accuses him and Drake of being fakes who don't write their own music

Kanye West has hit back at Kid Cudi after his former protégé accused him and Drake of turning their back on his career.

In a 10-tweet rant yesterday, Cudi also accused West of not writing his own music.

But West hit back on stage during a gig in Florida, saying Cudi had wasted his chance after signing to West’s G.O.O.D. Music label.

Cudi left the label in 2013 and accused West of using his vocals without his permission on his ‘Yeezus’ album, but reunited with his mentor to work on ‘The Life Of Pablo’.

But yesterday (September 15), Cudi wrote: “I need y’all to know I’ve got so many haters in the industry, and these clowns know I’m about to crush their existence. Everyone thinks they’re so great, talking Top Five and having 30 people write songs for them. The days of fuckery are over.”

Cudi, who joined West’s label to release his 2009 album ‘Man On The Moon: The End Of Day’, continued: “The fake ones won’t be lasting too much longer. They know I don’t give a fuck about the corny shit they do. I keep silent, because I don’t ever want to come off like some angry hater. My tweets apply to who they apply – Ye, Drake, whoever. These n***as don’t give a fuck about me, and they ain’t fucking with me. I’ve been loyal to those who haven’t been loyal to me, and that ends now. From here, I’ll let the music speak. As you were. Peace and love to my supporters and true ones.”

West was playing at Tampa’s Amelie Arena when he responded to Cudi’s criticism, saying: “I’m so hurt, I feel so disrespected. Kid Cudi: we’re two black men in a racist world. I got called names before you, bro. Why y’all got to be coming at me? This ain’t the end of the Malcolm X movie. I’m out here fighting for y’all. Don’t ever mention my name in a bad manner. None of y’all. I birthed you. Respect the God.”
