Kid Cudi got some free promo from Kanye West when the Chicago rapper shared an iTunes link to Cudi's new album Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin', which dropped Friday (Dec. 16), calling the project "super inspiring."
It's been a rocky year for the two longtime collaborators. In September, Cudi name-checked 'Ye and Drake in a Twitter tirade about the music industry. "These n---as dont give a f--- about me. And they aint f---in with me," he typed. West also fired back during a Saint Pablo tour stop, saying, "Kid Cudi, don't ever mention 'Ye name. I birthed you."
Several days later, West backpedaled on his comments at his Houston show and called Cudi "the most influential artist of the past 10 years."
