What a difference a week makes. After Kid Cudi’s Twitter rant, which caused Kanye West and Drake to deliver their own responses, Kanye has decided to take a step back. On Tuesday night (Sep. 20) during the “Saint Pablo” tour stop in Houston, Texas, Yeezus decided to offer some kind words to his former protégé while performing “Runaway.”

The most important artist of the past 10 years… most influential. And I hope he’s doing well,” Kanye says about Cudi in a clip posted online. Soon after, Kanye would state Kid Cudi is one of the “most influential artists of the last 10 years” and call him “my brother.”

Check out the clip below.

Kid Cudi woke up on Wednesday (Sept. 14) with a lot on his mind. The Cleveland rager took to Twitter, appearing to be frustrated with the industry and certain relationships. “I need yall to know I got so many haters within the industry and these clowns know Im bout to crush their entire existance. Everyone thinks they’re soooo great. Talkin top 5 and be having 30 people write songs for them,” said an angry Cudi.

All my youngins out here reppin, Asap Rocky and the whole ASAP family, Travis Scott, SuperDuper Kyle, Audio Push, Hit Boy, etc, I see yall,” the 32-year-old said moments later praising some of his younger peers. “My tweets apply to who they apply. Ye, Drake, whoever. These ni**as dont give a fuck about me. And they aint fuckin with me. Ni**as keep you close when they see how powerful you are by yourself. When they see your greatness. Out of fear,” Cudi continued, throwing light shots to both Kanye West and Drake.

There’s no details to where all of this stems from, but former OVO artist ILOVEMAKONNEN also chimed saying “Yes kid cudi! Thank u!” before deleting the tweet. Kid Cudi’s new album, Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’, is expected to arrive later this month.

Going into the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night (Aug. 28), the subject on everyone’s mind was Kanye West and what was the rapper planning to do on stage. The designer/mogul was given four minutes of free time during the VMAs, to do or say whatever comes to mind. Before premiering the steamy music video for “Fade” starring Teyana Taylor, Kanye delivered a speech, where he discussed wanting Beyoncé to win “Video of the Year,” the infamous “Famous” video, and the Taylor Swift controversy behind the lyric on that same song.

Along with shouting out Puff Daddy, 2 Chainz, Chance the Rapper, and Jaden Smith, Yeezus praised his wife Kim Kardashian West and also named some of his creative idols. “My role models are artist merchants. There are less than 10 I can name in history. Truman, Ford, Hughes, Disney, Jobs, West,” he said.

One person that also got a shout out was Kanye’s ex-girlfriend Amber Rose. “I see you Amber,” said the 39-year-old loudly, as Amber nodded back stunned. That moment social media in a frenzy and got the Garden crowd going, as they cheered and applauded.

Watch Kanye’s full speech below.

Gucci Mane’s Homecoming Concert at the Fox Theater in Atlanta opened with his long-time producer Zaytoven, in red suede, at a white grand piano…tickling the ivories like some kind of Trap Bobby Short while Gucci rapped for the first time in years to sold-out stands filled with his most devoted.

The light melodies and the heavy rhymes were a perfect mismatch…and a reflection of Zay himself.
While in New York City to promote his new book for aspiring producers, “From A To Zay,” the 36-year-old piano-playing, church-going, family man who, according to Sonny Digital and Metro Boomin’, is the “godfather” of the trap sound, joined me on my new TuneIn streaming radio show to talk about what it’s like to be the most sober man in the room…

How he ended one of Gucci Mane’s saddest beefs with the man who started it all with him
What he has planned with his ‘Beast Mode’ partner, Future…
The difference between him and some of Atlanta’s other production stars…and more.
Zaytoven also gave me one of the most illuminating explanations of why trap music is teflon from rap elite criticism. It was a really interesting conversation and I hope you guys enjoy it.

We’re playing highlights from the Zaytoven x Miss Info interview starting at 1pm EST on my streaming show on TuneIn’s new Hip Hop Beat station…click here to listen.

kanye west kim kardashian harpers bazaar

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian land their third couples cover by fronting the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine, shot by the legendary Carine Roitfeld and Karl Lagerfeld (spoiler: it’s less raunchy than their L’Officiel Hommes spread, but more intimate than their Vogue one). In a wide-ranging interview with Laura Brown, Mr. and Mrs. West talk about everything from their favorite music and TV show to their public perception and biggest insecurities…oh, and nude selfies. It’s all quick fire questions and ADHD answers, but it’s still a pretty fascinating look into the life and times of KimYe.

Check out a few of the best quotes below, and click here to read the full interview. The issue hits newsstands on August 16.

rich-homie-quan

Rich Homie Quan is sorry. The Atlanta rapper made headlines after VH1’s “Hip Hop Honors” on Monday night (Jul. 12). RHQ joined Lil’ Kim to perform The Notorious B.I.G.’s verse off Junior M.A.F.I.A.’s “Get Money.” The moment on stage quickly turned bad as Rich Homie Quan got a lyric wrong, rapping “play Nintendo with Cease and Alamo” instead of “Cease and Nino.” He had trouble finishing the verse as Lil’ Kim quickly stepped in to carry the song. Soon after, the hiccup turned into a frenzy on social media as heavy backlash and memes were directed to RHQ.

A day after the incident, Rich Homie Quan took to Instagram to issue an apology.

Joe Budden is showing no signs of slowing down. Five days after releasing the diss track “Making A Murderer Pt. 1″ aimed at Drake, the Slaughterhouse MC is back with another one filled with lyrical blows. Produced by araabMUZIK, “Wake” finds Jumpoff Joe calling out the Toronto hitmaker being a culture vulture, issues with The Weeknd, and more.

Gucci wasn’t home two seconds before you rode his d**k,” raps Joe. “Bodied Versace flows, copy, that he stole/ Ay dios mio, sorry Migos, adios amigo.” He later raps, “Was that your plot all along? Why you ain’t do that vid with Fetty but you hopped on the song? No really, we want a Party album/ But you keep stealing all of Party’s album, to go and put it on your party album.”

Get the song on iTunes and listen below.
