After extending a sincere apology, Kanye West and Kid Cudi resolved their differences and reconciled.
The two had a public falling out in 2022 when Kanye removed Cudi from his Donda 2 album due to Cudi’s association with Pete Davidson, who was dating Kanye’s ex-wife Kim Kardashian at the time.
Kid Cudi responded by expressing that he was finished with Kanye and that it would require a miracle for them to be friends again.
During an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music, the renowned rapper, known as Scott Mescudi, disclosed that he and his Kids See Ghosts collaborator made amends after Kanye apologized.
“The reason why we became cool again is because he apologised to me and it was sincere. I was just like, wow,” Cudi said. “Kanye does not apologise to anybody and say sorry to anyone. And that’s my brother, man. I know he loves me and there’s just nothing like Kanye and Cudi. We like the duo that everybody loves to see.”
Kid Cudi acknowledged the support he had received from Kanye at the beginning of his career, such as financing the Day ‘n’ Nite music video.
“When it was going down, I wanted to walk away,” he added. “I wanted to give up, but in thinking about it the past couple years, it’s like this is someone who is my brother ultimately who came into my life and championed me and did things for me that nobody else did for me early on in my career.”
Recognizing that Kanye is a fundamentally good person, despite his controversy regarding antisemitism in late 2022, Cudi resolved not to abandon their friendship.
“He knows he made some mistakes,” Kid Cudi continued. “It’s like he knows he’s been on one hell of a ride and he knows he’s said some things that he might not be able to come back from in a lot of realms, in a lot of spaces from certain people. But we grow and I think I pray for him, and that’s my brother.”
Kanye apologised to the Jewish community for his offensive remarks in December.
