I’m not going to lie; I haven’t listened to the rest of this album, but once I saw that Kid Cudi was on the album, I had to listen to that one song. I’m sure the rest of the album is Drake acting like an emo chick while also bragging about how he’s the best to ever do it. I’m not a Drake hater, but I’m not the biggest fan of his songs. I like some of them, but I’m not living and dying for every song.
Before this, Kid Cudi and Drake were never in a song together. This is a surprise because I feel like Drake took Kid Cudi’s real depression and faked being an emo kid who’s instead of being depressed about real life, is depressed about women. Drake was featured in Pursuit Of Happiness, not in the song, but in the music video where they were partying together. A couple of years later, Kid Cudi dissed both Drake and Kanye for having ghostwriters. Drake came out of the clouds with a diss track originally at Pusha T and dissed Kid Cudi. These are the lyrics from Two Birds One Stone that took shots at Kid Cudi. You were the man on the moon. Now you just go through your phases. Life of the angry and famous. Rap like I know I’m the greatest. Then give you tropical flavours. Still never been on hiatus. You stay xanned and perked up. So when reality set in, you don’t gotta face it. Before the song was released, Kid Cudi checked into rehab for depression and suicidal thoughts a couple of days before the song. Fuck Drake for doing this, but he got what was coming to him when Pusha T released The Story Of Adidon. The beef continued after the song was released when Kid Cudi tweeted at Drake, “Say it to face, pussy. You think it’s a game. I wanna see you say it to my face. I’ll be out soon. Promise.” Since then, there has been no news about the beef between Drake and Kid Cudi. Things must have cleared up as Kid Cudi was featured on IMY2.
Back to the song, the intro is by Juice World, and then Kid Cudi comes in with the verse. The beat goes perfectly with Cudi’s rapping, and of course, a Cudi feature wouldn’t be complete without him humming.
We have Kid Cudi and Drake singing the chorus, and then the second half of the song is mostly Drake. It’s not a banger like Pursuit Of Happiness, but it’s worth the listen mostly because of Cudi. I wonder if we will see a Drake feature on Man On The Moon 4? I have no idea if that’s confirmed to be released, but I can hope for it.
