In September, Kid Cudi required to Twitter to reveal his disappointments about commitment in the music service and ghostwriters for today’s leading rappersand he clearly called out Drake and Kanye West. Days later on, the rap artist inspected himself into rehabilitation for self-destructive ideas and drug abuse.
On Sunday, Drake launched brand-new music by means of his OVO Sound Radio and streaming services, however fans are a little peeved with a couple of lines in specific that appear to take chance ats Cudi and psychological health.
The tune in concern is “Two Birds, One Stone.”
“You were the male on the moon/ Now you simply go through your stages/ Life of the well-known and mad,” Drake raps. “You remain xanned and livened up/ So when truth embeded in you do not got ta admit it.”
Many translated that line as trivializing Cudi’s anxiety as a “stage,” and folks were not cool with the dig, especially as attending to psychological health is still viewed as a stigmatized concern within black neighborhoods.

Drake simply strengthened the black preconception that mental disorder is a weak point, a defect and not the illness it is. Recover Kid Cudi

Neither Drake or Cudi’s camp have actually openly acknowledged the questionable line, however Cudi go back to the phase in early November.
