The situation between Drake and Kid Cudi hit a whole new level on Friday afternoon. Cudi took a break from his therapeutic hiatus to fire back at Drake. He sent out a direct tweet to Drizzy saying, “Say it to [my] face p*ssy. You think it’s a game. I wanna see you say it to my face. I’ll be out soon. Promise.”
@Drake Say it to face, pussy. You think it's a game. I wanna see you say it to my face. I'll be out soon. Promise.

This is most likely a direct response to Drake’s “Two Birds, One Stone” diss, which he rapped, “My numbers are out of the world, no wonder they got me feeling so alienated/You were the man on the moon, now you go through your phases/Live for the angry and famous.” The shot was Drake’s response to Cudi who had recently taken very public shots at Drake and Kanye West in a series of tweets.
When the song was released over the weekend it sparked a debate over whether Drizzy went too far by seemingly mocking Cudi’s current stint in rehab for mental health issues.
While he did voice his issue with Drake, Cudi did not mention where he stands with Kanye West. After his initial rant, Mr. West responded in kind by scolding the former GOOD Music artist on stage during one of his stops on the Saint Pablo tour. Yeezy would do a 180 a few days later at a different show. He praised Cudi and called him “the most influential artist of the past 10 years.” Ye took that a step further this week and encouraged his fans at a show to sing Cudi’s verse on “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1.”
