Kid Cudi had a lot of respect and love for Kanye West, but it seems that was tested recently. The relationship between the two went downhill after Kanye took to Instagram to announce that Cudi was no longer a part of the highly-anticipated sequel to Donda because he had sided with Billie Eilish.
Months after their apparent feud, Kid Cudi is giving fans an intimate look at where he’s at in his life, both personally and artistically. In an expansive new cover story interview for Esquire, Cudi speaks from the heart about a wide variety of topics, including his mental journey and his time in rehab back in 2016.
It should be noted, Cudi’s interview for this new cover feature were conducted back in June. Surprisingly, tucked into the feature are a number of comments from Cudi about his then-current feelings regarding Ye. As widely reported, including quite recently, the two have seemingly severed their once-friendly relationship after Cudi found himself drawn into Ye’s public saga involving Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson earlier this year.
While speaking with Esquire about where things stood at the time, Cudi minced no words and asserted it would take “a motherf*ckng miracle” for him and Ye to rekindled their friendship this time around. In fact, he doesn’t see it happening. Cudi hit hard at Ye as he said, “Ye’s “gon’ have to become a monk” for any rekindling to be possible.
“I’m not one of your kids, I’m not Kim. It don’t matter if I’m friends with Pete or not friends with Pete. None of this shit had anything to do with me. If you can’t be a grown man and deal with the fact that you lost your woman? That’s not my f*cking problem.”
Cudi asserted that these days, he doesn’t tolerate “wrong energies.” and when it comes to Ye, specifically, he’s seen people get repeatedly “burned by him” only to swiftly forgive him. Stay tuned to Thirsty for more.
