Grammy-winning rapper Lupe Fiasco has provided some context to what caused an unexpected rift between himself and ex-G.O.O.D. Music artist Kid Cudi.

After outlining how he met Cudder when he worked at a clothing store and dished on his music, Lupe referred to a past Twitter conversation causing problems.

“I told my fans, ‘Yo, if you want a Lupe verse, I’ll write it for you for $500. It’ll be yours; you can’t put it on Twitter — it’s yours. Don’t leak the sh*t or do whatever; it’s yours.’ And Cudi went on Twitter and was like, ‘Yo, Lupe, what you gonna do with that money?’ I’m like, ‘N*gga, it’s $500, the f*ck you talking about?’ I’m thinking he joking. I’m like, ‘Bro, what you mean?’ … He stopped tweeting at me – then I caught wind of all these Cudi fans like, ‘F*ck Lupe.’ I look at what this n*gga wrote and he’s like ‘Lupe’s trying to swindle his fans, I would never do my fans like that'” (“Sway In The Morning”)

Lupe fast-forwarded to now and offered Cudder a chance to squash their problem before things potentially turn uglier.

“I [told my friend], ‘Yo, gimme this b*tch a** n*gga Cudi’s number, if I see him, I’m knockin’ him the f*ck out. ‘Cause I wanna get to the bottom of what the f*ck you talkin’ about because it’s me. The same n*gga you went in Complex and was like, one of the only n*ggas who reached out to me genuinely and had love for me was Lupe. But now I’m some f*ckin’ thief? Now I can’t find you? Nobody knows where you are? And then you come back with talking about how n*ggas should act and operate in the business? N*gga shut the f*ck up ’cause I’ve been trying to find you and couldn’t find you for six months. … Cudi, let’s settle this before I f*ck you up!” (“Sway In The Morning”)

Earlier this month, Cudi threw himself into a Twitter feud involving Lupe and hip-hop artist Azealia Banks.
