Kid Cudi has inspired countless musicians younger than him, and the late Juice WRLD was among them. Shortly after the Chicago rapper achieved mainstream success with his song "Lucid Dreams," Juice WRLD tweeted directly at Cudi to let him know he was eager to work together. The two eventually had a chance to meet, and now Cudi has posted a heartfelt tweet responding to that request from 2018.
"It hurts we never got to work together," he wrote in his retweet of Juice WRLD's original tweet. "When we met at Coachella I was surprised u were even a fan. I didnt feel so old after all haha. I got something just for u I hope u love. All for you brother. Tell my dad I said hey. Love u man."
He followed up with a screenshot of their iMessage conversation together. "Such a pleasure meeting you brother," Juice said to Cudi. "Dude! So awesome finally meeting u. Lets stay in touch, im runnin around a bit but hopefully we can get up," he replied.
He didn't indicate what he had planned as a tribute to Juice WRLD, but it's clear that his passing on Dec. 8, 2019, had an impact on him.
