Is Drake Mocking Kid Cudi’s Depression in New ‘Two Birds, One Stone’ Track?
Drake announced at last night's (October 23) OVO Sound Radio show that he'll release a new music collection (specifics were vague: playlist? mixtape?) called More Life in December. The rapper teased fans with four immediate releases from the collection, including one called "Two Birds One Stone," which would eventually lead to a little bit of trouble.
The song appears to mock Cudi with the lyric "You were 'The Man on the Moon,' now you just go through your phases / Life of the angry and famous." Fans took this as a slight to Cudi's depression and suicidal instincts, amid which the "Erase Me" rapper entered rehab earlier this month.
"I am not at peace. I haven’t been since you’ve known me. If I didn’t come here, I would’ve done something to myself," Cudi wrote to fans via Facebook just before seeking treatment.
The next most recent installment of the rappers' beef manifested in September, when Cudi accused Drake and Kanye West of dismissing him as a legitimate artist in the industry. West and Drake both responded — Drake, during a tour stop in Oakland California, during which he mocked "Boy, you getting way too high / You need to ‘Cud it," in an adjusted version of O.T. Genasis’s hit, “Cut It.”
Do you think Drake's taking a shot at Cudi's condition, or are fans reading too much into the lyric?
