While Drake is busy dissing Kid Cudi, Kanye West took some time during the latest stop on his Saint Pablo tour to give Cudi a shoutout. While performing in Los Angeles on Tuesday, Kanye dedicated his performance of “Father Stretch My Hands, Pt. 1” to the “Surfin’” rapper.
With a version of the song playing over the instrumental of “Wolves,” Kanye asked the crowd to sing along for Cudi. “So Cudi, he in rehab right now, but he got a No. 1 song on the radio and I want you to sing so he can hear it,” Kanye told the crowd.
“Cudi, you hear them?” West said as the crowd continued to sing the song’s chorus, which is sung by Kid Cudi. It was a nice gesture by West who just a few weeks ago was feuding with Cudi.
The drama between the two began in September when just weeks before checking into rehab, Cudi called out West and Drake on Twitter. “I need y’all to know I got so many haters within the industry and these clowns know I’m about to crush their entire existence,” he tweeted. “My tweets apply to who they apply. Ye, Drake, whoever. These n----- don’t give a f--- about me.”
Following the tweets, Kanye called out Cudi during a concert in Tampa, Florida, saying, “Kid Cudi, don’t ever mention Ye name. I birthed you. We all dealing with that emo s--- all the time.” It appears that Kanye had a change of heart and realized what Cudi was actually going through.
Earlier this month, Cudi checked himself into rehab after revealing he was dealing with depression. There haven’t been any updates on his status, but before entering rehab, the rapper made a lengthy post on Facebook, saying he would hope to be out in time for the ComplexCon convention on Nov. 5.
“If all goes well I'll be out in time for ComplexCon and I’ll be lookin forward to seeing you all there for high fives and hugs,” he wrote. “Love and light to everyone who has love for me and I am sorry if I let anyone down. I really am sorry. I’ll be back, stronger, better. Reborn. I feel like s---, I feel so ashamed. I’m sorry.”
