The 'Day N Nite' hitmaker is quick to set the record straight on the rumor that he dissed the 'Hotline Bling' star by posting a comment about songwriting integrity.

AceShowbiz - Kid Cudi recently took to Twitter to dispel rumors and clarify his stance on songwriting, amidst speculations and fan theories surrounding his creative process. Cudi was adamant in his response, emphasizing, "No one writes my lyrics EVER. Every song U have ever heard from me, I wrote."

He further elaborated that while song credits can often appear convoluted with numerous names, these predominantly represent the contributions of producers or those involved with the song's sample, rather than lyricists.

The discussion took a turn when fans interpreted Cudi's remarks as indirect criticism of Drake, a fellow artist known for his own lyrical prowess but also embroiled in ghostwriting controversies in the past.

Cudi, however, was quick to rebuff such interpretations, stating, "Man me speakin my truth is not me dissing anyone. Its my truth. Its a fact (sic)." He explained that his remarks came as a response to a fan's comment, suggesting that Lil Yachty might have penned the lyrics for his song "Superboy."

Back in 2022, Kid Cudi was also forced to clarify speculations about his relationship with Drake, after their association had been misconstrued. Following some remarks that were quickly seen as a jab at Drake, Cudi expressed a certain admiration for Drake's forgiving nature, particularly in reference to Drake's reconciliation with Ye, formally known as Kanye West.

"I got love 4 him," he said back then. "[but] im not so forgiving. Meaning he might be a lil nicer than me in that situation w dude. Thats all. Maybe that came off wrong thru my words. So yea, all good w Drake."

However several years back, in 2016 to be exact, Kid Cudi and Drake did clash after Drake supposedly mocked Cudi's struggle with mental health in one of his songs. Cudi reacted, "@Drake Say it to face, p***y. You think it's a game. I wanna see you say it to my face. I'll be out soon. Promise." He added in another post," The fake ones wont be lasting too much longer."

For Kid Cudi, this entire episode underscores a broader narrative about artist integrity, the significance of authorship in music, and the misinterpretations that can arise in the interwoven narratives of the hip-hop community.

As Cudi continues to address these topics openly, it is clear that his commitment to transparency and authenticity remains unwavering. Meanwhile, fans and fellow artists alike watch on, as these discussions contribute to the evolving discourse on creativity and collaboration in today's music landscape.
