Kanye West has attempted to reclaim the title of biggest idiot in America from Donald Trump, this time by claiming he "birthed" Kid Cudi. Though to be fair to Kanye, this time he didn't start it.
Events unfolded after Kid Cudi had a bit of a nervous breakdown on Twitter this week. It began vaguely with him writing, "Everyone thinks they're soooo great," which is pretty rich from someone whose Twitter name is The Chosen One. He did eventually get to the point, which supposedly was that he felt left out from Kanye West and Drake collaborating together. Try not to get too upset, won't you.
Despite Cudi quite clearly warning that "the days of the fuckery are over," the days of fuckery had, in fact, only just begun. On a Saint Pablo tour stop in Tampa last night, Kanye took a moment on stage to thank him for his kind words:
"Don't never mention 'Ye name, I birthed you," he said, then added: "Don't try to say who I can do songs with. You mad cause I'm doin' songs with Drake? Ain't nobody tell 'Ye who to do songs with!"
Ye (meaning Kanye, not the Old English plural form of thou) went on a meltdown rant on stage that flipped between sincere and slightly less serious subjects, "I'm so hurt. I feel so disrespected. Kid Cudi, we're two black men in a racist world. I wore skinny jeans first."
Just wait till Kim and Taylor undoubtedly wade in on the drama.
