Kid Cudi and a fan had a difference of opinion on one of his songs.

The fan took to Twitter to tell Cudi how much they loved the SoundCloud version of “Love,” a bonus track on the recent greatest hits collection The Boy Who Flew to the Moon Vol. 1.

“I fkn love u @KiDCuDi thank you so making this masterpiece,” the person tweeted alongside a SoundCloud screenshot.

Cudder responded, “U know i released this officially right?”

Another fan chimed in, writing, “The OG version on SoundCloud hits different.”

Cudi replied, “Taking it off.”

The song now no longer appears on Cudi’s account, with XXLpointing out the versions are comparable, with the SoundCloud rendition having a more lofi mix and including some instrumentation the official version doesn’t have.

When Cudi’s decision evidently drew negative attention, he shared his stance, writing, “Anybody switchin up and talkin shit about me taking off my song on soundcloud thanx for showin who u truly are. Its one of the reason i dont want to do music anymore. (Some) fans can be toxic and not cool sometimes. And this app really be showin some of yall true colors.”

He concluded, “I have a lot of blessings happening in my life and I wont let anything get me down becuz life is so great right now.”
