Kid Cudi and Kanye West might not be getting along so well recently, but they probably still have a wealth of material locked in their vaults. Case and point: the most recently drop of theirs together. The song is an alternate version of Cudi's "Too Bad I Have to Destroy You Now" from his album Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon, and features a verse from Kanye that appears to be incomplete. Several times during the verse, he transitions from rapping to a hum or word slur, indicating that this is still a rough cut of the song.
Still, the lyrics that are there show a lot of promise for the incomplete song. "I be laughing at you niggas/Taunting you niggas," he raps. "Surrounded by fake niggas/And fake bitches tryna get in my ear/What about gold diggers?/Yeah I got 'em."
Sadly, it seems relations between Cudi and Kanye have soured a bit in recent months. Cudi's now-famous Twitter rant called out both Ye and Drake, alleging that they have "30 people" write their songs. Cudi also claimed he spent too long showing loyalty to people who wouldn't show it back, which many also perceived as a dig at Kanye. Although Ye reacted angrily at first, calling Cudi out during his Saint Pablo Tour, a later tour stop saw him saying that Cudi was "the most influential artist of the last ten years." Hopefully, this is an indication that they've moved past the animosity behind the scenes.
