Kid Cudi addressed the escalation of his feud with Kanye West in a new interview.
Following West’s split from ex-wife Kim Kardashian and comedian Pete Davidson, West, now officially known as Ye, released a fake front page of The New York Times to his Instagram account with a caption that read, “Skete Davidson dead at 28.”
The smaller text below said, “Kid Cudi wanted to play funeral but was afraid of bottle throwers.”
West was referring to Cudi’s recent set at Miami’s Rolling Loud Festival, where Cudi stormed off the stage after fans threw objects at him.
In a profile for esquire published on Wednesday (17 August), Cudi berated his former boyfriend for mocking him on social media.
“That he had the power to fuck with me that week. That he used his power to f*** with me. That pissed me off,” said Cudi.
On West’s situation with Kardashian, who has repeatedly criticized West for her reconnection with Davidson, Cudi said, “If you’re not a grown man and you can deal with the fact that you’ve lost your wife? That’s not my damn problem. You have to own your shit like every man has in this life.
“I lost women too. And I had to admit it. I don’t need that in my life. I do not need it.”
Cudi ended his tirade by saying he would not forgive West. “With all due respect I’m not Drake who’s going to take a picture with him next week and be friends again and her beef is crushed,” he said.
“I’m not. I mean what I say. I’ll be done with you. It’s going to take a damn miracle for me and that man to be friends again. I don’t see it happening. He needs to become a monk.”
Cudi and West have had a close musical relationship in the past. Cudi has since appeared in some capacity on all of Kanye West’s albums 808 & Heartbreak while West has appeared on two of Cudis.
After bickering over creative differences and reconciliation, the two fell out again over Cudi’s friendship with Davidson. In an Instagram post in February, West showed off the poster for Captain America: Civil War Photoshop to render Davidson, Cudi and Kardashian as an opposing team.
Kardashian filed for divorce from West in February last year, and she became legally single in March of this year. The couple have four children together, North (nine), Saint (six), Chicago (four) and Psalm (two).
