Kid Cudi Says He’s “The Most Hated Man In Hip-Hop”

||, , |

Even during the midst of one of his biggest headlining tours and the rollout of his milestone tenth studio album, Kid Cudi has been dealing with a lot of drama recently. In case you missed it, he had a huge falling out with Kanye West, got objects thrown at him at Rolling Loud, and then hatched some beef with producer Mike Dean. Due to the fallout of these events, Kid Cudi took to Twitter to say that he thinks he’s “the most hated man in hip hop right now.” He’s since deleted the post.

We have no idea what it’s like to deal with a fanbase as rabid as Kanye West’s, but it’s definitely taking a toll on Kid Cudi. He mentioned in an interview with Esquire that the “trolls” he’s encountered during this public feud have been a serious issue. Here’s the exact quote from the piece:

Do you know how it feels to wake up one day, look at your social media, and you’re trending because somebody’s talking some shit about you? And then you got this person’s trolls sending you messages on Instagram and Twitter? All in your comments? That shit pissed me off. That he had the power to fuck with me that week. That he used his power to fuck with me. That pissed me off. You fucking with my mental health now, bro.

Regardless of how he feels, he was able to pull around 18,000 people together for his Moon Man’s Landing event in Cleveland over the weekend. With a die-hard fanbase such as that, perhaps he’s not the most hated man in hip-hop but is currently feeling the heat from his altercations. We can think of a few other artists who are much more hated than Kid Cudi.

He also stated that he was going to write a memoir to tell “the full story.” Until then, you can check out his recent documentary, A Man Named Scott (which apparently doesn’t tell the full story).
