Drake and Kanye West are providing a stark contrast in their reaction to Kid Cudi's announcement that he checked into rehab to deal with depression and suicidal thoughts. While Drizzy has drawn scorn from some mental health professionals and Twitter for his diss of Cudi's condition on the new song, "Two Birds, One Stone" from his More Life project, Kanye gave a heartfelt shout-out to the troubled MC.

'Ye -- who, like Drake, was called out by Kid Cudi in a series of angry tweets in September -- offered up a tribute to Cudder at a Saint Pablo tour stop in Inglewood, California, on Tuesday night (Oct. 25). "So Cudi, he is [in] rehab right now, but he got a No. 1 song on the radio and I want you to sing so he can hear it," Kanye told the crowd, then leading them in a chorus of "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1," which features a verse from the Cleveland MC.
