In addition to battling depression, Kid Cudi has been mired in a couple of high-profile rap beefs lately. Last month, the MC took to Twitter to call out his former boss Kanye West and Drake, writing, “‘Ye, Drake, whoever. These niggas dont give a fuck about me. And they aint fuckin with me.” While he and Yeezy eventually made amends, the tensions between Cudi and Drake have only escalated: The OVO boss recently put out a song called “Two Birds, One Stone” which included a line seemingly mocking Cudi’s mental health issues (the track also curiously featured a songwriting credit for Kanye).
Now, Big Sean has weighed in on all the drama with a new song called “No More Interviews”. The G.O.O.D. Music affiliate — who’s collaborated with Cudi, Kanye, and Drake on various projects — says he’s “hurt” by their strained friendship, but that he’s still praying for him:
“So many friends turn to enemies, they frenemies/ I don’t know why I act like I’m surprised or it’s offending me/ I’m saying tho I should have learned from Hov and Dame / From Stunna and Wayne, Cudi and Ye / What happened to our family ways though/ When I put you on that song with Nas you had told me that you was forever grateful/ And that we brothers, so it hurt to hit the internet to find out that me and you don’t fuck with each other/ Over a miscommunication that probably could be fixed with a 5 minute conversation, I’m still praying”
In related news, Cudi’s found support in the likes of ASAP Rocky, ASAP Nast, and Jaden Smith, who all appear in his new video for “Surfin'”, which can be seen below.
