Not cool, Drake.
Yeezy and Drizzy initially clapped back in concert, calling out the Kid for his apparent dip in popularity.
Kanye called a ceasefire after Cudi checked himself into rehab to seek treatment for depression and suicidal urges; he even called his mentee “the most influential artist in the past 10 years.”
However, things haven’t cooled down on Champagne Papi’s corner of the ring, because the 6 God hit back AGAIN with a diss track making fun of Cudi’s mental illness!
That’s right! On Monday, the 30-year-old dropped a handful of tracks on his Apple Music OVO station — including Two Birds One Stone, which features scalding lyrics that underplay the Man On The Moon rapper’s battle with depression:
“You were the man on the moon, now you go through your phases / Life of the angry and famous / Rap like I know I’m the greatest and give you the tropical flavors / Still never been on hiatus / You stay xan and perked up so when reality set in you don’t gotta face it”
Fans weren’t loving the cheap shot, with many Twitter users feeling that depression is not something to make fun of — especially in a community where mental illness still has a huge stigma that prevents many from seeking help.
What do U think? Take a listen to a clip of the song (below) and see the displeased reactions!

Kid Cudi disses Drake’s talent and Drake’s only comeback is to insult Cudi’s health and not musical abilities…….

drake making fun of kid cudi’s depression just goes to show you the disrespect and neglect mental illness gets in the black male community.

Drake taking shots at Kid Cudi about his mental illness is just childish.

Drake dodges lyrical rappers but disses a depressed suicidal Kid Cudi that’s in rehab, Drake is a clown.

Why does it matter when Drake came up with those lyrics? The fact of the matter is he still said them after Cudi’s issues were made public

I love Drake but him making fun of Kid Cudi’s depression is ridiculous. Depression isn’t a “phase” it’s a life long battle of self torment.
