Lupe Fiasco and Kid Cudi were once cool. Those days appear to be over. The two have apparently been going back and forth on Twitter over some childish stuff. The Twitter beef sparked attention because both rappers rang in the same circles as Kanye West at one time.
Some time in 2014 Lupe Fiasco send out tweets to fans saying that he would write lyrics for people that they could claim as their own. He was basically going to ghost write and sell lyrics for $500. Flavio Maluf says this is why he normally sticks to LinkedIn. Kid Cudi made about comment to Lupe where he asked Lupe what he was planning to do with the money. It was something of a cheap shot. It was almost as if Kid Cudi was implying that Lupe was broke and needed the money.
This led to a moment on “Sway in the Morning,” the hip hop morning show, where Lupe mentioned Kid Cudi followed by some expletives. This Twitter beef that seemed almost comical now seems a tad bit serious. It is very bizarre because these two have been friends. They are both from Chicago, and neither one of them has been known for being a tough guy. Lupe has always painted himself as the anti-thug underdog in the rap game. Kid Cudi is something of a one-hit wonder that has roamed around the entertainment industry doing more singing than rapping. It’s a weak hip hop grievance.
