Pusha T Speaks About Kid Cudi And Kanye West’s Feud
Pusha T’s latest album is out, and it features what appears to be Kanye West and Kid Cudi’s final collaboration. In the middle of the Donda 2 launch, the two had a public spat. Cudi retaliated by labelling Ye a “dinosaur” after Ye confirmed that Cudi would not be on the project.
Cudi said he cleared his verse on Pusha T’s “Rock N Roll,” which also features Ye, before the release of It’s Almost Dry. He made it clear, that he and Ye are no longer in good standing and will not be together in the future. “Hey! So I know some of you heard about the song I got w Pusha,” he stated. “I did this song a year ago when I was still cool w Kanye. I am not cool w that man. He’s not my friend and I only cleared the song for Pusha cuz that’s my guy. This is the last song u will hear me on w Kanye -Scott.”
King Push T Speaks About Cudi And Kanye’s Collab
Pusha T expressed his thanks for his ties with both Cudi and Kanye in an interview with Vulture, but added that it’s a strange situation to watch happen. “It fucking sucks. You know Cudi is my fucking brother to the end. Just navigating these relationships, this brotherhood, the arguing … it gets public,” he said. It’s one thing for us to argue. We all argue — that’s not a problem. It gets out there, whether it’s Ye bickering first, or Cudi coming back with what he says. It’s super–fucked up.”
Push recalled the studio session for “Rock N Roll,” which included a sample of Beyoncé’s “1+1,” saying that “everyone was so happy” when they got there.
“The day we made this record, everybody was so fucking happy. Ye’s chopping the Beyoncé sample. Cudi happens to come in that day. We see each other, and I hadn’t seen him in a while. He’s like, ‘I gotta get on a record. Are you crazy?’ Cudi did, like, three or four different references. Beyoncé cleared the sample,” he continued. “There was so much great energy around the making of that record. And, you know, time passes, and issues come up. He did what he did for his bro, and I love him for that.”
