Kid Cudi took to Twitter today to establish his dominance in the game, specifically over Kanye West, Drake and “the fake ones.” The Cleveland artist expressed his frustration with rappers who reach mainstream success while having teams of songwriters behind them, contrasting himself as someone who has true creativity.

I was for so long out of blind loyalty. From here Ill let the music speak. As you were, peace and love to my supporters and true ones. Cudder Out.”
Cudi appeared twice on West’s The Life of Pablo, “Father, Stretch My Hands Pt. 1” and “Waves.” He also assisted Yeezy on the My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy cut “All of the Lights.”
