Machine Gun Kelly Speaks On Beef With Kid CuDi Over The Word "Raging"

UPDATE: MGK explains that there's "no issue on my end" and that he's "not going to argue over a fucking word."

Cleveland, Ohio natives Kid CuDi and Machine Gun Kelly got into this week when the former lay claim to originating the Cleveland slang term "raging," which means an intense sort of partying.

"There’s only one original Rager, and [sic] thats me," posted CuDi on his Tumblr page. "I started this ‘rage’ shit. The lifestyle, the term, the whole new meaning and definition of the word. Understand and be clear, IAM THE RAGER, IAM FOREVER. When you hear ANYONE talking bout ‘rage’ or ‘raging’, know where that shit originated. Guess ima have to do some trademarkin’. ACCEPT NO SUBSTITUTES. WE LIVE THIS SHIT!"

Though he didn't mention Machine Gun Kelly by name, the rapper responded quickly after CuDi's post popped up on his Twitter account:

if i was you, i'd hate me jealous mufucka. 216 what up. EST what up. lace the fuck up.26 Aug via web Favorite Retweet Reply

CuDi has yet to respond.

UPDATE: Machine Gun Kelly spoke on his recent Twitter beef with Kid CuDi, explaining that he doesn't have any problems with the G.O.O.D. Music rapper.

"There’s no issue on my end," he told Karen Civil. "I’m not going to argue over a fucking word. That just shows me I’m doing something. [...] You got time to sit there and be mad about a motherfucker using a word that everyone uses."

    Another wanna be cudi , fuck mgk and his fans

  • skitch

    MGK is never about beef. He never starts anything with anyone, but he's allowed to defend himself. Just let him be. LTFU or STFU.

      Cudi worked very hard to be labeled as Mr.rager and he made raging apart of his daily lifestyle , now some faggot wants to come and make t-shirts n shits ? Fuck mgk and his album , stay in yo lane Mgk

    I remember when I said raging....In 8th grade

  • stfu

    yall talk shit like your opinions matter in this, your bitching and bickering is dumber than the "beef" itself. quit talkin shit, chances are the majority of you cant rap nearly as good as any of these 2. let alone be as successful as either one. fuckin start talkin bout shit that matters, in fact go do something to make the world a better fucking place rather than sit by your laptop nose deep in everyone else's shit. and for the record curiosity led me here. tryna fucking find a bizzy bone video, getting distracted by stupid shit. chances are my time writing this was wasted cause neither of you losers are gonna do anything to leave behind something that makes a difference in this world. yall wanna know why stupid shit like this gets hyped ? its cause idiots like you follow these artists around like little bitches. excuse my language bt the stupidity in the world is just ridiculous. if you're gonna discuss something, please make it important. sincerely, 1 of few people left in this world with some decent common sense.

  • cudi is a bitch

    yo cudi, you are a fucking faggot. YOU DONT OWN WORDS, that word originated before you were even fucking born, go choke on a fat dick an "rage" all night with it. I remember kids sayin that shit in the early 90's, fuck off. I aint not MGK fan either, both do absolutely nothing for me, especially cudi.

    who the hell uses rage? are we "raging" tonight? what the hell is that? unless you're in high school or a little teenager in the U.S. (where it's acceptable to be a dumbass at that age), then you have no business talking like a complete, uneducated moron. People, grow up and do something with your lives. MGK and Cudi got lucky and had their break. The rest of you need to learn a skill or put on a uniform. Bottom line. Peace.

    MGK seems like he is taking this too personal.For all he knows Cudi was talking about some guy he knows.Don't make beef where beef doesn't exist

  • pschase

    I like Cudi, and I'm learning more about MGK. Fellas, don't let this become the wackest beef ever...the term "raging" "rager" "raged" has been in use since at least the early 80's. I came up skateboarding in those days at it was used all the time. Cudi just chill.

    • jrocthe3rd

      yeah kudi acting like he came up with the word "rager". shows how young he is cuz everyone in high school in 94 and 95 was saying that. You aint fresh!!

    • tek

      look at your fucking face you tooly no pussy gettin fag. cudi fucking blows, hes lame, hes soft, and hes a bitch, just like you. word to others who post using your facebook page...dont.

  • WHAT

    First, MGK isn't even worthwhile of any argument! He's pretty wack, not that the non-weed CuDi is gonna be much better from what I can tell... I've been sayin let's RAGE for a many years, so to claim you started anything is crazy talk on top of it all!

  • tdawgwhoa

    uhhh ive been hearing and using the term "rager" long before anyone heard of Kid Cudi and MGK for that matter. so they should both get over themselves. and i live in Cali, so maybe theyre both late or something.

    A rapper I don't care for beefing with a rapper I don't care for.

  • Really?

    @Vimal . . . HA HA HA. I totally disagree. "Starting a beef"??? Nope nope nope, it was your boy Cudi who "started" the beef. MGK was mindin' his own da*n business when this sh*t cam out. "Destroyed [his] career"?? Nope nope nope, looks to me like he got free publicity out of this ish, and the twittorama all seem to thing that Cudi is the tool in this box. Quit being silly fool, Cudi done made himself look like an a**, regardless of what you think 'bout MGK. HA HA HA HA HA. Back to the sandbox boys.

  • ha

    What a bunch of tools, aruging over who orignated a word that has been used wayy before them? i don't know anything about this Machine Gun Kelly guy, only that he seems like a gay version of Yelawolf. But Kid Cudi might be one of the biggest douche bags in the Rap industry, dude is amazingly arrogant for someone who really isn't anything special

  • Really?

    You all are dumb*sses. MGK didn't claim to have invented the term "raging." The term has been used to refer to hard core partying since before either of these dudes was born -- shit's been on urban dictionary since 2003. Cudi's the arrogant fool who claimed to have "invented" the word and thinks he should be able to "copywrite" a word that's been in common usage since he was in diapers. MGK merely responded to let Cudi know that he'd seen Cudi's arrogant-*ss subtweet, which was dead-on directed to MGK. And that was some bullhit -- I have seen MGK interviewed about CUdi, and he has never been anything but respetful and supportive. Cudi is the dickh*ad in this story.

    Motherfucker, I've been using that term for ages before Cudi even had his name out. Fuck that arrogant prick. Dude is a RAGING homo.

  • Fizzy

    Uh, I'm confused...Kelly's not even really from Cleveland. Didn't he move there when he was like 15 or 16 and the cats only like 21 right now? Hmmm...

  • Jesus

    hm get back to rap you dudes are complaining too much. and MGK stfu. noone would be jealous of you. suckin puffs dick like your gonna win the lottery. J-lo sucked him and shes much more famous then him

  • Pay attention....

    Hold up fans....I'm a semi fan of both these cats, cause they both be bringin somethin new to the music game...gotta say I think Cudi's bein the biz-itch with this tho....who claims a word that done been used since before this dude was born, let alone started rapping. And those of you lumpin MGK into the his tweet again. He ain't sayin sh*t about how he started the term....just throwin defense at Cudi's bitch punch...".if I was you I'd hate me jealous mufucka....lace the fuck up". Haha. Cudi ain't been musically relevant in a minute and he's feelin the heat of MGK's recent rise....not really checkin for MGK too tough as of yet but i'm riding with him on this one, an educated man. ONE!!!

    • shane

      you would assume mgk is insinuating he originated it or else why would he even respond. I mean he's either talking about the rage shit or he's just poppin shit out of nowhere and thats not likely.

  • Mr. Fuck Pop Rap

    HAHAHA.....get the fuck outta here with this shit. People have been referring to heavy partying as "raging" before these two pop tarts were born. Fucking diva pussies. These young boys are fucking pathetic

    Been saying "raging" LONG before I even heard of either of these try and take credit for a word that people have been saying since before you were born is just plain stupid

  • Sawyer

    Hahaha. So who coined this term? The guy who actually is famous, or the guy you MAY have heard of? Probably Cudi... I especially love the jealous shit. How could he possibly be jealous of MGK?
