Fresh off a revelatory interview in which he dragged Staten Island for housing "Trump-supporting fucking jerk offs," Saturday Night Live's Pete Davidson hit up the Breakfast Club crew to debut more quotables. The 30-minute discussion is a must-watch, including Davidson's unfiltered thoughts on Kid Cudi, Lil Yachty, and the general anxiety of social media.
"Cudi's the best out of all of them," Davidson told Charlamagne Tha God when asked to pick between the Man on the Moon or the 6ix god. "I would always go with Cudi." When asked why he's particularly fond of the Cudi catalog, Davidson credited him with saving his life. "I would have killed myself if I didn't have Kid Cudi," Davidson explained. "If you're 25 and under, I truly believe that Kid Cudi saved your life."
But when it comes to Yachty, Davidson doesn't have anywhere near as much love. "It's like, what is this?" Davidson said. "You know what I mean? I feel bad for kids growing up that, like, their favorite rapper is Lil Yachty." According to Davidson, he feels lucky to have grown up when albums were still a physical thing and, apparently, the musical landscape was Yachty-less.
He also opened up about his big goal for 2017: shunning the digital limelight. "I really wish that I was, like, strong enough to not go online," Davidson said. "That's my goal for next year, to not have an Instagram. I got rid of Twitter and I got rid of Facebook."
Davidson was recently profiled by Complex editor Andrew Gruttadaro who pointed out the comedian's "apartment door is always unlocked." The topic was brought up during his Breakfast Club interview, and Davidson explained he now locks his door after "Complex blew up my spot."
