MAN ON THE MOON
Mental illness. A disease. Self-identity suffers…a lack of air for the anxious. Gripping titles from albums, ears to the music, induced self-worth. Who are we? We are millions. Kid Cudi is in the news lately; battling personal demons while engaged in words with rap artists who don’t necessarily understand the SELF of many individuals they encounter on a daily basis.
The recent diss from Drake stems from comments made a few weeks ago in which Kid Cudi questioned the motives of current rap artists. Drake dropped “Two Birds, One Stone,” featuring the line…
“You were the man on the moon, now you go through your phases/Live for the angry and famous.”
Kid Cudi has responded today with a tweet aimed at the “Hotline Bling” singer.
“Say it to [my] face pussy. You think it’s a game. I wanna see you say it to my face. I’ll be out soon. Promise.”
Is mental illness fair game when it comes to the battleground we call RAP? Where do we draw the line?
Tupac famously went after Mobb Deep/Prodigy, regarding his Sickle Cell Anemia in the song Hit ‘Em Up.
Don’t one of you ni**as got sickle-cell or something
You’re fucking with me, ni**a?
You fu*k around and catch a seizure or a heart-attack
You better back the fu*k up
Before you get smacked the fu*k up
I remember the first time hearing Kid Cudi & his debut album Man On The Moon, he brought a realness & a sense of psychokinesis that represents Time Machine Poetry . This isn’t a Drake vs Kid Cudi scenario; this represents society as a whole.
Stay tuned for more on this ongoing story.
