Kanye West signed Cudi to his G.O.O.D. Music label in 2008 after hearing the MC's first official full-length project, the A Kid Named Cudi mixtape. Cudi left the label in 2013.
At his Wednesday night concert, 'Ye said he felt "disrespected" by Cudi's recent tweets: "You know how many people wish they could be signed to G.O.O.D. Music, get they life changed? Have that opportunity? Never forget that. I'm so hurt. I feel so disrespected. Kid Cudi, we're two black men in a racist world. I wore skinny jeans first. I got called names before you, bruh. Why y'all got to come at me? This ain't the end of the Malcolm X movie. I'm out here fighting for y'all: creatives, artists, independent thinkers. Don’t never mention my name in a bad manner. None of y’all!”
Earlier in the day, Kid Cudi used Twitter to express his frustration with other hip-hop artists, writing, "I've been loyal to those who haven't been to me and that ends now. Now I'm your threat."
