The two rappers who were once thought to be good friends are apparently at a war of words with Cudi lashing out at Wale for being “wack” and insisting that he and Kanye are not fans of his music.
In an interview with Complex, Cudi states that’s he’s “incomparable” to any other rapper and he didn’t take too kindly to a post the D.C. rapper penned comparing himself and his peers to different genres of sports.
“Did you see that Wale interview that he just did, comparing us to sports? Let me clear this up: I’m incomparable to anybody. I don’t care how people take that. No one can compete with me.
I’m unf*ckwittable; no one can knock me off my sh*t. I’m an unstoppable force, I’m a bullet. My trajectory is to the sky. N*ggas got to do something really spectacular to f*ck with me and my realm, and n*ggas be so bitter that you hear it in their voice.”
When Complex asks Cudi his thoughts on a line Wale dropped in a freestyle referencing to that infamous incident where Cudi punched a fan on stage, a noticeably agitated Cudi calls Wale “wack” saying,
“It wasn’t a shot, it’s just a simple-a** rhyme by a simple-a** rapper. 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. N*ggas 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.”
Cudi also made sure to add in one more jab at the D.C. rapper, this time about his references to Kanye West on tracks. According to Cudi, he and his G.O.O.D. music head don’t “f*ck with him musically” and Wale should be less thirsty.
“The last album, I let people dis me, throw out those jabs in their verses and have their little slick remarks. This time around, I’m not f*cking around. I have no time to think about other n*ggas. These other mother*ckers like feeding off another n*gga’s energy, so they mention their name.
You hear me talk about n*ggas? I don’t even talk about Kanye, and that’s my homeboy! They talk about Kanye like they’re bosom buddies with this n*gga. 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 f*cking with your raps. It’s not a conspiracy theory. We don’t f*ck with you musically, so we’re not going to provide music for you.
The sh*t is a service, it’s a quality of a certain standard. N*ggas are just so thirsty it’s ridiculous. I’ve been eating humble pie forever, and people still call me an a**hole. These people don’t know my f*cking life—now I’m going to give them something to talk about.”
Wale subliminally addressed his issues with Cudi on his track “Numbers One” from his More About Nothing mixtape saying,
“Maybe it’s on me or brother it’s on you/ Or maybe it’s they fault that we ain’t holla since June/F*ck it we on the move/None of us tryna lose/I am outta this world and you are a ‘Man on The Moon’.”
