TAMPA, Fla. (WTSP) – In front of a crowd of thousands at Amalie Arena in Tampa Wednesday night, Kanye West took time between songs during his Saint Pablo Tour to unleash his wrath in upon ex-protégé and rapper Kid Cudi.
“Can’t nobody tell Ye who to do songs with. Respect the god.”
Cudi, who was once signed to West’s G.O.O.D. Music label, went on an angry Twitter rant, sending out a flurry of Tweets on Wednesday to vent career frustration while also taking shots at West and Drake independently and possibly as collaborators. “Everyone thinks they’re so great. Talkin top 5 and be having 30 people write songs for them,” he wrote. “My tweets apply to who they apply. Ye, Drake, whoever.”

And with Kanye not being the type of guy who lets insults slide, even at a concert, he fueled the flames with a few minutes of Yeezy-style ranting.
While in the middle of performing his verse on the remix of Chief Keef’s 2012 summer hit “Don’t Like,” Kanye stopped the song to make it clear to Cudi and everyone else in Amalie Arena exactly what he doesn’t like. “Don’t ever mention Ye name. I birthed you.”
But it doesn’t stop there, because Kanye is also not the type of guy who will let another rapper, or anyone else for that matter, outdo him in a rant, because it’s one of the things Kanye does best.
“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,” screamed West from his floating stage. “Nevaaaaaaaa.”
