I was REAL hesitant to put this interview up and even read it for myself but RR’s title for their post, Kid Cudi Discusses Cocaine & Wale caught my attention. Cudi really goes in on this interview and it’s definitely worth five minutes of your time. He hasn’t been impressing me much as of late but after this interview, I got a little more respect for the guy. And he did bring up a good point when he said, “People are quick to judge my singles one by one, and when the album drop, those be the assholes that are like, ‘Oh shit, I totally underestimated Cudi, this shit is crazy.’ I told you, dumbass: You can’t look at snippets from an Oliver Stone film and be able to critique it.” That’s so true because although his music was tight, I was very surprised how good Man on the Moon: End of the Day was.
Speaking of Wale, when you hit that fan at your show last December, he came out with a line about it [“Throwin’ ’round wallets like the dude that Kid Cudi hit,” from “Thank You Freestyle”].
Kid Cudi: It wasn’t a shot, it’s just a simple-ass rhyme by a simple-ass 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. Niggas 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.
