Wale Elaborates On Kid Cudi In Complex Magazine
Washington, D.C. rapper Wale has responded to comments Kid Cudi made about him in the latest issue of Complex magazine.
During the interview with Complex, Kid Cudi took offense to a line from Wale on the "Thank You Freestyle" in which Wale rapped: "Throwing 'round wallets like the dude that Kid Cudi hit…"
"It’s just a simple-ass rhyme by a simple-ass rapper. You can’t let that s**tfaze you," Kid Cudi originally told Complex.Â That’s one of those raps that just shows the world that you wack. Why would you even use that as a metaphor? Everybody think they Hov. Ni**as aint got the magic like they think they do."
Wale responded once, early last via week Twitter: "Ni**as lettin' that liquid cocaine get to them. Let's go then."
On Friday (September 17th), Wale appeared on DJ Drama's show on Sirius Satellite Radio and elaborated on his feelings towards Kid Cudi.
"It's just rap music. there was not no malice out of it. it is what it is, it was a line. We make lines. 9 out of 10 rappers wouldn't take it as a diss. As I am growing as a man and an artist, you see what you gotta do and how you gotta carry yourself and why you keep your circle small."
Wale also addressed Kid Cudi's comments that the root of their issues could have stemmed from the fact that Kanye West allegedly didn't give him any beats because they didn't like Wale musically.
Ye/s a good dude but I don't recall making too much of an effort to work with anybody. I'm signed to roc nation, there's great producers…It aint really all that deep. this aint 2001, where a producer is end all be all."
Wale was recently in the studio with Yo Gotti and plans on working with Waka Flocka Flame and others.
