Story highlights

  • West responded during his concert

(CNN)Another Ye, another hip hop beef.

Kanye West and Kid Cudi are having some problems and thanks to social media we can all share in the drama.
It all began when Kid Cudi went on a tirade on Twitter Wednesday, taking some of his fellow rappers to task.
    "Everyone thinks they're soooo great," he tweeted. "Talkin top 5 and be having 30 people write songs for them."
    He then added "The fake ones wont be lasting too much longer."
    Lest folks not know who he was talking about, Kid Cudi named names.
    "My tweets apply to who they apply. Ye, Drake, whoever," he tweeted along with some profanity.
    But you don't want to insult Kanye West on even his best day.
    West, who signed Kid Cudi to his G.O.O.D. Music label in 2008, responded while performing on stage during a Tampa, Florida concert stop.
    He paused his performance of the song "I Don't Like" to tell Kid Cudi "don't never mention 'Ye name. I birthed you."
    "You mad cause I'm doing songs with Drake," West said. "Ain't nobody tellin' 'Ye who to do songs with. Respect the God."
    He reminded Cudi of their history by saying "You know how many people wish they could be signed to G.O.O.D. Music? Get they life changed?"
    "I'm so hurt," West said. I feel so disrespected. Kid Cudi, we two black men in a racist world."
    He also warned Cudi about speaking recklessly.
    "Don't ever mention my name in a a bad manner," West said. "None of y'all! I birthed you."
    Drake also was performing Wednesday night, but in Oakland, California. His barb at Kid Cudi was more subtle.
    "Boy you getting way too high you need to Cudi," Drake said, playing on the words of the popular song, "Cut It."
