Kid Cudi blasts Kanye West and Drake for having '30 people write songs for them'
"I need yall to know I got so many haters within the industry," Cudi's rant began, "and these clowns know Im bout to crush their entire existance."The rapper proceeded to lambast his peers who enlist "30 people [to] write songs for them" - seemingly mocking the collaborative songwriting method that West has openly used on his albums since 2008's "808s and Heartbreak."

Cudi then went for the jugular and directly name-dropped West and Drake, who was embroiled in a "ghostwriting" controversy after the release of his 2015 mixtape, "If You're Reading This You're Too Late."
