Kanye West and Kid Cudi may be close to an armistice after Yeezy swore an oath of loyalty to his former G.O.O.D. Music protégé on Instagram on Wednesday evening (February 16).
“Love you family,” Kanye captioned while reposting a previous post from Kid Cudi that read, “God… Please watch over me and keep me sane. I could use it right now. To anyone who feels alone, I’m with u and I love you.”
Following their rift over the weekend, Kids See Ghosts fans were thrilled at the prospect of their collaborators reuniting. Kid Cudi first took shots at Kanye by announcing that he wouldn't be making an appearance on Donda 2 because of his friendship with Kim Kardashian's boyfriend, Pete Davidson.
“JUST SO EVERYONE KNOWS CUDI WILL NOT BE ON DONDA BECAUSE HE’S FRIENDS WITH YOU KNOW WHO,” Ye wrote. “WE ALL SPEAK IN BILLIE LANGUAGE NOW.”
As soon as he saw the message on February 12, Cudi replied, “Too bad I don’t wanna be on ur album u fuckin dinosaur hahaha,” he wrote and then deleted the message. “Everyone knows I’ve been the best thing about ur albums since I met you. Ima pray for u brother."
“We talked weeks ago about this. You’re whack for flipping the script and posting this lie just for a look on the internet. You ain’t no friend. BYE.”
On Super Bowl Sunday, Kid Cudi was watching the Los Angeles Rams beat the Cincinnati Bengals in Atlanta. A paparazzi asked him about Kanye and Kid Cudi snarled at him showing that things have not yet been resolved.
Cudder has appeared on every Kanye West album since 2008's seminal 808s & Heartbreak, except for Jesus Is King in 2019. For the iconic "Moon" track on DONDA, Cudder joined Don Toliver and Ye.
