Rap veteran Sean Price has called out Kid Cudi and his fans by mocking the loyalty of the G.O.O.D. Music artist’s supporters.
Price told his own fans to stop supporting his own movement if they also like Cudi’s music.
“If you got Sean Price in your playlist and Kid Cudi in the same playlist, you need to don’t be my fan no more, get outta here,” Price said in a video. “Matter of fact, if you’re a Kid Cudi fan, kill yourself. And that’s all I got to say about that.” (Pound)
Last month, Cudi talked about no longer allowing artists to clown him.
“The last album, I let people dis me, throw out those jabs in their verses and have their little slick remarks. This time around, I’m not f*cking around. I have no time to think about other n*ggas. These other motherf*ckers like feeding off another n*gga’s energy, so they mention their name. You hear me talk about n*ggas? … N*ggas are just so thirsty it’s ridiculous. I’ve been eating humble pie forever, and people still call me an a**hole. These people don’t know my f*cking life–now I’m going to give them something to talk about.” (Complex)
Cudi’s words caught the attention of ex-associate/rapper Wale who took offense and forced newly added G.O.O.D. Music artist Pusha T to address the matter.
“I don’t find myself in the middle of it at all. I did speak to Wale because he is a friend of mine. He actually mentioned it ot me and we just had a brief talk. It was basically just keep making your music and whatever happens happens. I told him I wouldn’t really hop on that. They’re both talented and both have their fans. However this thing spawned, who knows? I’ve seen them together at times, so I don’t really know how serious it is. I do know they’re both really talented. We spoke about it and the end result was keep making music.” (Karen Civil)
Price has over two decades of music to his name.
In the mid-’90s, Sean Price, known then as Ruck, and partner Rock dropped their debut album, Nocturnal, as the rap outfit Heltah Skeltah during a time when East Coast hip-hop was delivering mainstream and underground classics left and right. Heltah Skeltah and the rest of their collective, the Boot Camp Clik, never enjoyed the popular success of East Coast acts Wu-Tang Clan or Mobb Deep, but they did receive that same critical acclaim.
