Kid Cudi Talks Drug Abuse, Beef with Wale

Kid Cudi opens up to Complex about his drug abuse, his secret child and why Wale is a "simple-ass rapper."

Kid Cudi recently chopped it up with Complex Magazine for the cover story to their October/November issue in promotion for his sophomore LP Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager. The G.O.O.D. Music rapper opened up to the magazine about a number of highly personal issues, including his former cocaine use. The rapper said that he began using the drug during interviews, but that he has since stopped using since his arrest for criminal mischief and possession in June. 

"I started doing cocaine to get through interviews, 'cause people wanted to know a lot about my personal life and I wasn't prepared for a '60 Minutes' interview every time," he admitted. "Doing bumps I was able to get through the day, but then I would smoke weed to calm me down—it was the only way I could get through the day without people noticing." (Complex)

He added, "I never thought it was a problem, but I was definitely high-fiving death a couple of times. It took a lot for me to talk about shit like this on the album. I don't feel like I need to explain myself to anyone besides the fans. My fans don't believe shit until they hear me say it." (Complex

Cudder also revealed that he has also been a father since March of this year. He says that having a daughter has profoundly affected him, but that now he's ready to take on the task of fatherhood.

"I have a daughter, born March 26 of this year," he said. "Her name is Vada, and she's fucking awesome. That was eating me up, and it was stressing me out that nobody knew about her. I was trying to escape from that, too. Just trying to figure it out and make everyone happy, it's a lot for somebody my age to handle. I was manning up and dealing with it in what I thought was the right way, but it was the wrong way. I want to be around for her. I can honestly say she was the wake-up call. The reality that it's bigger than just you now—you have a responsibility and there's no more time for mistakes. It's time to stop fucking around...I'm excited about watching her grow, I'm excited to be a papa." (Complex)

Cudi also talked his issues with fellow 2009 XXL Freshman Wale. The D.C. rhymer recent took a lyrical swap at Cudi on his "Thank You Freestyle," saying "Throwin' 'round wallets like the dude that Kid Cudi hit." He assured Complex that the rhyme meant nothing to him, and that Wale is just "a simple-ass rapper." (Complex)

"It wasn't a shot, it's just a simple-ass rhyme by a simple-ass rapper," he said. "You can't let that shit faze you. That's one of those raps that just shows the world that you wack. Why would you even use that as a metaphor? Everybody think they Hov. Niggas ain't got the magic like they think they do; there's only a couple of wizards in this game. I'm a wizard and I know it. Are your peers not seeing that?" (Complex)

He later added, "The last album, I let people diss me, throw out those jabs in their verses and have their little slick remarks. This time around, I'm not fucking around. I have no time to think about other niggas. These other motherfuckers like feeding off another nigga's energy, so they mention their name. You hear me talk about niggas? I don't even talk about Kanye, and that's my homeboy! They talk about Kanye like they're bosom buddies with this nigga. Talking about "I be in Hawaii"—man, shut the fuck up, why you got to tell everybody everything? Then people like Wale get mad that 'Ye ain't give him no beats—'Ye ain't give you no beats because we ain't fucking with your raps. It's not a conspiracy theory. We don't fuck with you musically, so we're not going to provide music for you. The shit is a service, it's a quality of a certain standard. Niggas are just so thirsty it's ridiculous. I've been eating humble pie forever, and people still call me an asshole. These people don't know my fucking life—now I'm going to give them something to talk about." (Complex)

Not to be bested, Wale took to Twitter earlier today to respond to Kid Cudi's remarks to magazine.

    is it just me or do wale and wiz k sound almost exactly alike.

  • Ashley aka Mescudi's number one fan!

    Cudi can't be compared to. People can diss and say whatever they want, but that shit doesn't mean anything. What Scott raps about is real. His life story, his experiences, and what's going on in his mind. Who can compare to that? Other rappers just talk shit and rap about how great they are and other meaningless shit. Wale being the perfect example. Wale is dissin on a man who isn't even fazed by what people are saying and focuses on his own shit. That just goes to show who the better man is. Not even as a rapper, but as a person in general. Cudi is number one all the way and the haters can just keep hatin but what they say doesn't mean shit!

    • Jose Fan Of The Rager

      I Clap On Wat You Say Its True He Expresses His Feelings ON HIs Song How He Feels MOstly MOre About His Like ANd Its True If U See In His Songs His Father Is Wat Most He Is Affected Dan I Luv Kid Cudi For Life Fuck All His Haters!!

  • ferg

    Kid Cudi has a unique style. Wale is an average rapper with an average style. I would much rather listen to Cudi over Wale. I feel Cudi on the name dropping but even Kanye name drops and feeds off other niggas energy. "My big brother was Big's brother." I wouldnt give Wale no tight ass beat either if I were Kanye. Wale's songs wont complement Kanye's beats, even though Kanye's beats will almost definitely complement Wale's songs. Unlike Cudi, nothing about Wale's music screams talent. kill that beef. Maybe Wale can offer Cudi a DC Dippa as a truce

  • John McClintock

    I used to think Cudi > Wale. 'Mixtape About Nothing' was kinda wack to me, and 'a KiD named CuDi' was pretty badass. But now Cudi's comin' out in interviews sayin' he's over rap, he's proven he's the best rapper out, he's the best in the game...all this chat after a couple tapes and an (1) album? You're on G.O.O.D. music; Mos Def, Ye, Common > you, nigga. I passed on 'More About Nothing' when it first came out, but now I have it downloading while I write this. Cudi might have to fall back on How To Make It In America if his rap attitude keeps up like this, making a fan of his hate his ego.

  • TheCritic

    you cant compare cudi and wale. they both have different rapping styles. lyrically. wales is better. creativity cudi no doubt. its not comparable but they both are definetly HIGH talents in the game and people need to respect that and respect the fact that cudis not dissing wale cudis past all that beef shit and all that wack shit just like jay is past that illuminati shit qoute "stop with all that childish shit nigga im grown"(takerover by jayz off the bp1) and kanye and cudi ARE g.o.o.d. music fuck they need to get down with some interscope cat for? all respects to wale.

  • Juke

    They're both equal to me..i mean Wale does traditional hip hop..Cudi does alternative..and they're good at what they do EXACTLY what I think also.

  • SDC

    wale sucks ass hes boring...

  • Josh Bechard

    Cudi is not better than Wale, hes got more mass appeal cuz he isnt as lyrical as wale, so fuck this kanye puppet

  • ThatBlackGuy

    They're both equal to me..i mean Wale does traditional hip hop..Cudi does alternative..and they're good at what they do

  • MonkusMax

    cudis not that nice either but thats just a dumb line from wale. wale is ok all his dope shit never sees the light of day. he always pushes stupid songs with barely any quotables if you tired of the bullshit simpleton lyrics with no depth or character at all check this new guy out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXnvuNmXDIE

  • MonkusMaximus

    im ridin wit Cudi on this one. Wale that was a dumbass punchline smh if i was kanye i wouldnt give you beats either if you tired of the bullshit simpleton lyrics with no depth or character at all check this new guy out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXnvuNmXDIE

  • me?

    i personally won't mind any beef with these guys. im too caught up listening to my Eric B. and Gang Starr. Sorry guys:)

  • MAnt20

    I'm no longer listening to this faggots music. Sorry Scott but your a punk.

  • JoseBiN

    Man Cudi sure is bitch made, how come you go and call "simple ass rapper" to a dude that was your homie, who you worked with and never dissed you and even went as far to make a track about both of you have grew apart?(number one) Plus, this dude doesn´t make rap or hip hop, i mean whatever he does is nice but rapping? Fuck outta here, listen to any Wale mixtape or just listen to "Family Affair" and you will see who´s simple ass. I hope Wale buries this punk ass coke head.

  • NickM

    I listen to both these guys a fair amount. As far as im concerned these guys are nothing alike Cudi raps about getting high and Wale has great lyrics. I can chill and get high to Cudi and thats about it but Wale I can listen to anytime of the day and before reading this I used to listen to Cudi alot more than Wale just cuz Cudi music was interesting,different. But I would say WALE is 10x better than Kid Cudi for kid cudi saying WALE is simple ass. If anything Cudi simple ass. Name a song you acutally had to listen too to think damn did he just say that? Cudi is a simple ass rapper

  • ilexx

    I never wanted to make a comment like "Cudi is WACK!" but honestly after him calling Wale a "simple ass rapper" i feel like just punching this dude. I honestly have to say that I had no idea how dope Wale was until "More About Nothing" mixtape where dude spits his ass off. Easily one of the best mixtapes this year. Wale has lyrics which are clear and they flow. Cudi HAS ZERO quotables. Cudi makes spaced out trippy music, he isnt a rapper and isnt an MC. I mean seriously Cudi makes stoner music and thats as far as the buck stops. I remember when I first tried to listen to a Cudi mixtape and I just didnt get it, I thought it was like when I first started listening to Lupe and I didnt get him but i KNEW he was way deep but I hadnt figured out his style yet and after a few listens u realized that Lupe was a damn genius. Wellllll I gave Cudi a chance, listened to a mixtape and then his album 'Man on the moon' which I listened to twice in its entirety before deciding that Kid Cudi is WACK! He is wack if what you are looking for is lyricism which is what I look for in a rapper. Kid Cudi cant even rap coherently anyway so I dont even look forward to these guys trading verses...... Wale over Cudi anyday. The funniest part of Cudi talking about Kanye and them not fucking wid Wale's music is that Wale is way closer to being a Kanye type of rapper than Cudi is and I know for DAMN sure that Wale over some Kanye production would be doper and more commercially successful than anything Cudi will ever do in his lifetime... enough said.. thats all folks!

    • Truthhh

      Thisn post summed it up for me. Wales a muchh better rapper lyrically nd if he went on sum better beats like Kanyes or Boi1da hed have more buzz leading to more sales. Cudi isnt even a rapper while Wale is a lyrical beast. More About Nothing>>>>>> Anything Cudi will evr put out.. NUFF SAID!

  • baykes

    if Wale a "simple ass rapper" then Cudi must not even know English yet. I'm mad he thinks his slow as stoner music is better hip hop than "More About Nothing"...or that its even hip hop at all for that matter. why Cudi gettin mad cuz Wale said he hit a dude like that shit didn't happen? clown

  • IWentThere

    I like both dudes. But I prefer Wale over Cudi any day. People dick ride Cudi too much from what I have seen.

  • money mass

    Who kid Cudi callin simple rapper LOL Dude juss talks on his tracks he's trash.Wale is ight he nothing special either.And how you gonna rap about being a coke addict when you just started doing it to get through interviews lol Cudi is wackness

  • Trying to eat out here

    Listen to the mixtape about nothing and listen to the chicago falcon remix at the end then go look up those lyrics nuff said

  • nm

    These niggas just made a song toghter look in da stars??

  • navi=)

    nvm i take that back. german and gay toby are dumb fucks. sorry Sensaye252 your just wack af

  • navi=)

    Sensaye252 your a dumb fuck for that.

  • Sensaye252

    At least Wale is an MC. Kid Cudi is just a high nigga on the mic with famous friends. I really don't understand why he's getting any shine at all. He's a bum ass rapper who wouldn't be able to exist in any other era of rap music. But because shit is so whack now, and the radios determine what people like, weak ass niggas like him are able to bullshit their way through a career. I just wish a rapper would come along that didn't care about sales or making friends, and would just lyrically destroy and expose 95% of the rappers that are out now. Someone clean this cesspool, please.

  • Wale = Kudi

    funny how everyone expects a good ol verse to verse match, these two young boy "swag & hippie rap" will likely take it to twitter/youtube/or INTERVIEWS and battle it out....like Sean Price said "I don't Wale w/ these new niggas"

  • Wale>>>>>>Cudi

    Wow Cudis callin wale a simple ass rapper!! HAHAHAH this is actually funny Cudi just has alota buzz, you can get high and chyll to his music but Lyrically Cudi would get eaten aliveeee!!! Gett Outta hear wit your sensitive ass Cudi lol talkin bout bein the best wizard in the game, actually dumb. Listen to More about nothing or any oher mixtape by wale better than man on the moon. People got the wrong idea of wale after attention defecit cuz it was wackk.. WALE> Cudi PEACEE!

  • Edwin Chibanga

    lol...wale sucks ass

  • toby

    wale is a lot better than cudi. kid cudi can't rap or sing. he relies on everyone else to make good songs for him.

  • German

    Wale's new mixtape: More About Nothing > Man on the Moon... I'm tired of Kid Cudi always sounding llike hes gonna cry in everyone of his songs, listen to More About Nothing cuz it was waaaaaay better than Wale's album.

  • Its Um

    look, cudi is creative with fusing sing and raping together with his producer, and wale is creative poetry and lyrical wise. They really shouldn't be beefin' they both good in their own unique way.

  • dlp23602

    They both suck ballzzzz!!

  • @RJPEsquire

    Reading this interview after watching "I'm still here" is a little bit of a mind job. Check my remix to Kanye's Power below! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKJ7VWjjB4I

  • big kev

  • Sensaye252

    "There's only a couple wizards in the game..Im a wizard and I know it"...oh my god..who the fuck is GASSIN' this nigga? Yo, Cudi, you are not dope son. Everytime I listen to this dude I say to myself "There must be something good about this guy that I just haven't seen yet", but I never see it. Then I realized that this dude is just weak. What does he do good? He can't rap. He can't sing. It's not like he comes up with these groundbreaking styles or concepts. I mean...what is it about this nigga that people like? Niggas who are high all the time think everything is 'brilliant'. One day this nigga is gonna sober up and realize how whack he was.

  • Truth

    Aye its tru everyone. listen to it!

  • ultramalo

    Wowowow.This guy is talking about eating humble pie? He then proclaims himself a 'wizard'? The arent any KRS-Ones on either side of this equation.Also, anyone affiliated with Kanye is going to have better sounds.Im calling bollocks on this my mans.

  • THE REAL IS

    Wale actually mentioned the break between him an Cudi on the mixtape "more about nothing". Track #6 entitled "competition". Listen to it, he even goes as deep to say "i am outta this world, and your a man on the moon". Wale paints it as if its the industry putting he and cudi against each other. Personally i like both, and think a collaboration would be great.

  • allyallstupid

    kudi's album is better

  • KevinD

    Wale is fuckin wack...

  • p-ez

    fuck cudi period. REAL NIGGAS in CLEVELAND DONT even bump cudi what so eva. you aint shit SCOTT

  • dapluva!

    Na'an one of these niggaz can Fuck With Elzhi or Phonte but Wale dope though

  • Javito_1

    Hey can y'all jump off wale's dick for a second? yeah of course he's more "lyrical", but creativity overrides lyricism every time. You hear lyrical niggas all the time but how many lyrical niggas changin' the game like cudi? Wale got killed by every feature on attention defeceit, j.cole, k'naan, lady gaga, you name it. Shit, I'll put money on it; Kid cudi's gonna be here way longer than wale. Mark my words.

    • BamFk1nBam

      IF U WANNA TALK ABOUT GETTING KILLED ON A TRACK WE CAN GO THERE... KID CUDI HAS GOTTEN KILLED ON EVERY SONG HE HAS MADE... SHIT!!! EVEN WALE!!!... U EVER HEARD OF LOOK UP IN DA STARS OR IS THERE ANY LOVE? I LISTEN TO BOTH OF THEM... BUT I DONT CONSIDER CUDI A "RAPPER"

  • Anonymous

    I'm a HUGE fan of both Wale and Cudi. Cudi has bitten of way more then he can chew here. Wale is on his way up, 2 dope artists though

  • Life Accordin' to Dutch

    • I like Real Hip Hop

      DUDE YOUR All F*CKING IDIOTs. DOWNLOAD "MORE ABOUT NOTHING" his mixtape that dropped loast month. you all are one of those dumba$$e$ who watches 106 and park all day and listen to the radio. listen to some real music you fuckng lame ass pucci ass b*tches. Wale is more lyrical and creative than kid cudi. If it wasnt for kanye helping cudi out he wouldnt have got signed. I like cudi so i'm real on this one. I agree with the nigga below me.

  • Fresh2Death

    I'm a fan of both but FUCK CUDI. He's such a little emo bitch. He thinks he's major now because he had a little success and he hangs around Kanye. WALE would fuck your day up any day of the week.

  • 905

    lol cudi need to chill out, he thinks he's special.

  • Chupps

    Too many haters. Anyway, you can tell why Cudi and Kanye get along, they're like the same person almost. But these two shouldn't be beefin at all, they're totally different artists. Cudi can't rap as good as Wale, but he's more creative and honest in the music he makes. Wale is definitely the better lyricist but he still has to put out a good album before he'll be recognized as the better artist. Cudi's album was alot better than Wale's which was a big let down.

    • Life Accordin' To Dutch

      THIS THE FIRST SHIT I EVER HEARD OF CUDI "TALKIN SHIT"..U JUST MADE THAT DUMB SHIT UP..I NEED MY NIGGA "THE---LINE MAN" TO COME CALL YO ASS A ROBOT..

  • stuntmoney

    if we talking bout hip hop kid cudi cant fuck with wale man kid cudi is a simple rhyme writer that hides it behind gay ass hooks wale can spit

  • G'

    niggas were on Cudi (no homo)and now wanna act like they ain't shit on Wale for his single with lady Gaga. Wale was trying to do what Cudi did-get a hit. Stop with the overt siding due to Cudi being mainstream/associated with 'YE. Wale is decent, but Cudi is off the wall ish...I can dig it long as I dont think of it as rap, cuz half his shit not....but when he does rap, he kills it.

  • Mike Meraz

    Yeah Cudi's one of my favorite artists in the game right now. He's putting out shit that nobody is putting out. If you ain't feeling it, stop talking and just move on to what your looking for, he's not for everyone. But Cudi can't fuck with Wale lyricly, Wale is on a whole nother level. I like Cudi better then Wale because of that garbage ass "Attention Deficit" album Wale put out that just ruined my hype 4 Wale. But Wale's back on track. "Man On The Moon" was the last great "debut" album I heard. Dope as shyt. I dig Cudi more but lyricly? He's not touching Wale. Cudi's poetic but I admit as a rapper he's not the greatest, but his music is just too dope. "Simple as that for your simple ass"

  • joey

    Name one Kid Cudi song you actually like... I thought so! Cudi needs to keep his amy winehouse ass to himself

    • Mike Meraz

      thats what's dope about it. wow people are just so closed minded it's crazy. Cudi is dope and his music is doper then he is as a lyricist. He's more of a poet. He can't fuck with Wale lyricly but Cudi has not put out any trash like Wale has with "Attention Deficit". If you don't like Cudi's music then it's not for you, move on to the same shyt. Not that I dislike the "same Shyt". PeaCe

    • joey

      thats your opinion, as far as my opinion goes, listening to cudi's album (cudi zone, day n nite included) made me feel like i was in alice in wonderland. the rhymes were elementary and it felt like i was tripping on acid

    • FAITHUMS

      Day N Nite, CuDi Zone, Cudder is back, ENTER GALACTIC....should I go on ?

    • Javito_1

      Name one wale track you like; thought so.

  • Ryan Huerta

    Wale's Back to Feature Mix tape was better than Kid Cudi's official album!

    • Mike Meraz

      Yeah but Kid Cudi's "A Kid Named Cudi" mixtape shits on Wale's debut album! lol Wale's album was garbage so don't talk.

  • EuO

    Yeah i would agree. Cudi basically starts the interview off by admitting some shit most people wouldn't be telling a reporter. Then he goes on to say how he doesn't dick ride and proceeds to do that for almost the rest of the interview. It almost seems like he stole Kanye's ego or something...maybe it's just me. Most of his new shit is pretty whack too. At least Wale isn't trying to make music for a 14 year-old Japanese girl.

  • Jboss

    Imma totally choose sides on this, Cudi had his phase. And to call wale simple is whacck yo, all of cudi's shit is simple as some freshman hip hop shit, he does make different types of songs, a couple good songs to toke up with and that's pretty much all in my opinion. also i can't quote shit off this nigguh. and i read one of those comments with that HOV shit and what not. thats some bullshit, just cause cudi's in the mainstream more people will like him. the world can't endure proper hip-hop to be back into mainstream, wale is brilliant and is all real talk and no bullshit dreaming high shit.

    • Mikel Mitchell

      yo, that line is just a punchline not a shot at cudi. JEEEZZ!! go through withdrawals much cudi? it seems a little like that was a comment he made because he was on edge. cause i dont see how that was a shot at cudi he did hit the guy for throwing that wallet back on stage. right?

  • Jean Menard

    WTF I like Man on the Moon Cudi Has talent in making Hooks! Wale's Album Disappointing. But Back to the Feature was Great I still bump that! But cudi Said hes "Simple ass rapper"?? WTF Wale Raps circles around you though! Example: "Is there any Love"(Cudi FT Wale) "Word Play" By (WALE Ft Currency & Tre) Cudi Suks at Rap why would he say that? And He Used Crack?? WTF is Going on?

  • Joshua Tureaud

    *fixed* "he can forget about his old fans"

  • Heberpayy

    Anybody who sniff cocaine can't call someone "ridiculous" specially when they just admitted using for "doing interviews". WTF? This kid is wacc as fuck. Shit... did what? An average song with Kanye and alreadys feeling "wizard"? WTF is that? This fuck needs to lay low and do some other alternative-ass white-ass shit with... I don't know... anything white teens are listenin today. And Wale is gettin too cocky, Jesus! New rappers today's only promising at first, quite literally.

  • Joshua Tureaud

    cudi startin to sound like wayne with the interviews, I respect that he speakin his mind but dude is still 1 debut album deep in the game, not saying that that ain't shit but if he soundin like this this early in his career he forget about his old fans straight up.

  • elnuggums

    Man people are over thinking things way to much. I like both of the artist, but people are failing to realize that both rapper are going on two different paths for their career. Cudi is going on a point of view that will catch the eye of more than just the ghetto and the hood. Doing moves that will catch the eyes of the suburbs and a different crowd. While Wale seems to be taking a path of trying to be a remarkable MC. And one minded people(ones who says that a nigga sucks because you dont like his music. Like you could do better) wont notice this. Proof of what im saying is some awards that cudi's gotten. If you dont believe me you can look for yourself..

  • ruffdraft

    Cudi dont have a single qoutable. I forget he even exists for real. He has the sensitivity of a seismagraph or a bitch on the rag

    • Talkin 2 the mutherfuker that ain't real

      I disagree. Coming for an artists point of view. Cudi is more real comin from every angle. I bet people respect him for who he is. Since when was rap a flaunting contest. Artists need to wake and be real and make good music. That's why they don't call hip hop MCing. It's a mixture of both cool sounds and lyrics and I think Cudi covers that.... Listen to his 1st album....

  • Edu

    "I never thought it was a problem, but I was definitely high-fiving death a couple of times." What? How is high-fiving death not a problem?

  • problems/problema

    can't believe y'all actually fell for this..cudi is co-signed by ye and wale co-signed by hov...they all in the same camp..this is publicity..cudi make doper songs but calling wale simple is some glass house shit..lol..wassup with wale though..sha stimuli and and cudi goin at him all of a sudden..and cudi u started with that nose candy when u started fucking with that white broad amanda bynes..lying ass suse..lmao

  • dapluva!

    Wale Dope whut da fugg cudi gay ass taumbet? if anybody is wack its cudi and everybody on G.O.O.D wack with annoying voices except Common and Pusha T Consequence

  • heflys

    Wale's twitter post is pretty damn funny. That's all.

  • Glenn Tucker

    besides day n night does this nigga even have anything hot

  • Simple like ABC, 123

    Wale >>>>> Kid Cudi, but Kid Cudi is right when he said: "You hear me talk about niggas? I don't even talk about Kanye, and that's my homeboy! They talk about Kanye like they're bosom buddies with this nigga. Talking about "I be in Hawaii"—man, shut the fuck up, why you got to tell everybody everything? "

    Kid cudi did not just call someone simple!!..Cudi is the simplest rapper ever..dude makes Too Short look intricate

  • mhunterjr

    wale is a simple ass rapper, but so is cudi... both them niggas are ass at rappin. i heard wale say some hot shit once or twice, but i aint never heard cudi say somethin worth repeatin...

  • RT

    I think by "simple" cudi meant "less flamboyant"

  • DJ

    Cudi is the voice of a generation, not kanye and especially not Wack ass Wale Cudi is the truth bet on it

    • .......

      Comin from a dysfunctional house with no love.... Cudi knows what that underdog feels... Most of you motherfukers don't know shit.... Keep talkin out of your ass....

    • Mylie

      Kanye is the voice. nobody gives a FUCK about Cudi. hes a sensitive dickhead

  • Niko AM

    getting mad at a line like that is A LOT more simple minded to me, cudi needs to chiiiiill

  • BoiTooSLiiK

    in the world today, who will the worl pick? WALE OR CUDI?.....CUDI!!!!! i mean Wale good n all but Cudi makes better music. u gotta giv it to him. i bet if Wale had an album comin out November 9th ((CUDI)) wud get more sells, thats a #definate

  • dc_reppin

    im fans of both these brothas but cudi HAD TO BE HIGH during this interview...cudi in a different lane so u cant really compare straight up but, spitting wise, wale shits on him easy. i feel like this is pointless anyway didnt seem like wale really took a shot at him

  • Roach

    I gotta say that Wales' "More About Nothing" mixtape is better than anything Kid Cudi has crafted thus far. (point blank, period)

  • T

    man i dont care much for either guy but i have heard lots from each one and i can honsestly say that wale kills cudi with ease maybe some of his lines dont hit but he can spit and does have lyrics cudi only has a few songs i really really like he sings and gets all these weird beats he is not no "wizard" in this game if he was then he would have a much bigger fan base and put out classic material his music is to smoke and chill back to and thats it

      makes perfect sense. He gave them both a listen and wasnt into it. If anything that makes his point more valid. what are you confused about?

    • The Show

      Your funny, you don't care about either guy but you heard alot from both of them? I'm confused. lol. anyways, I think Cudi about to spazz out to promote this album.

  • Bauce

    Nonetheless cocaine is a helluva drug. Get yaself clean man. Dont care how it affects your music

  • POPTHADON

    hiphopbaby76 drugs are a dangerous thing...stay away from them. remember that commercial with the guy frying eggs..this is your brain...this is your brain on drugs ^^^^^nuff said.

  • nuc

    not picking sides on this one, but has cudi heard 'the mixtape about nothing' ? simple ass rapper? i beg to differ. i like both artists.

    • mr believe me

      I dont like either one of these guys. Not that that matters but imo "Day & Night" trumps anything that wale has ever put out. People jumped on Wale becuz of who he's affiliated with (jay's management company). Funny how all you have to do is be down with whoever the biggest rapper is and everyone will jump on the dillz. Now ppl realize how wack wale is. Sha Stimuli said it best. "I just dont see what the big deal is when it comes to him". But I also dont see the big deal about Cudi. Does he even rap? Anyway. Both are corny to me. So this make for an interesting battle (which i'm sure they wont do cuz they're both associated closely with Jay-z to a certain degree)
