What's The Beef Between Kanye And Kid Cudi?

Will this be as crazy as Drake and Meek Mill's beef?

What's The Beef Between Kanye And Kid Cudi?

If you are a true music lover, you know there have been many rap beefs in the world of music. Sometimes, people in the same genre of music with the same common goal disagree which ends in a diss track. If you don't really know about any beef in the rap world, there's plenty. We have 50 Cent versus The Game, N.W.A. versus Ice Cube, Tupac versus Biggie, Jay Z versus Nas, Nicki Minaj versus Lil' Kim, and we cannot forget the famous beef between Drake and Meek Mill. If you did forget, there are plenty of memes that can jog your memory.

Recently, I was looking around on Twitter like I always do. One day, Kid Cudi was the number one trending topic. I'm thinking to myself "Oh snap, did he release some new music?", but as I clicked on the hashtag, I found that he definitely didn't release some new music. Instead, he was releasing some feelings. Scott Mescudi, also known by Kid Cudi, is apart of Kanye West's music label G.O.O.D. Music. If you still don't know who I'm talking about, he's the guy who sings "Day 'N' Nite", "Make Her Say", or "Pursuit of Happiness". In my opinion, Kid Cudi is a talented individual. He has also written and composed music for Jay Z, Logic, Wale, Shakira, Robin Thicke, and of course Kanye West. Cudi actually helped Kanye with his top single "Heartless" and "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1" on Kanye's newest album, The Life of Pablo. If you would like to see the credits for Pablo, here you go.

Anyways, Kid Cudi was basically having a rant on Twitter on saying that "Everyone thinks they're soooo great. Talkin bout top 5 and be having 30 people write songs for them". Cudi also went on to say that his tweets could apply to anyone, including Kanye (the person who owns the label that Cudi is on, of course), Drake, or anybody because apparently they don't care about him anyways. Basically, he was saying if the shoe fits, lace it up and wear it. I want to know what is really making Kid Cudi mad. Something had to happen to make him tweet something like that.

Kanye West is also on tour right now, and during one of his performances, he stopped his song to call out Cudi. He said that Cudi should never mention his name and that Kanye birthed him. Kanye also stated that Cudi was mad that he was doing songs with Drake and other artists, and that Kanye and others were there for Cudi while he was going through rough times. He ended his statement with "Ain't nobody telling Ye who to do songs with! Respect the god!", and went on to finish his set. Here's the link to that video.

There is talk about a Drake and Kanye project, but we aren't completely sure just yet. Maybe Kid Cudi is a little jealous about that? Maybe something is going on with his music and Kanye isn't trying to get it out to the world? Nobody truly knows what's going on, but I hope the beef gets squashed soon. To be honest, I miss happy Kanye West and Kid Cudi together. They create brilliant projects when they work together.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
