(AllHipHop News) Kid Cudi’s comments about the current state of Hip Hop earlier this year are still garnering responses from other individuals in the culture. Speaking with Power 105′s The Breakfast Club, Maybach Music Group rapper Meek Mill offered his defense of the type of rap music he felt Cudi was referring to with his remarks.
“I think the braggadocio, money, cash, hoes thing needs to be deaded,” said Cudi while appearing on The Arsenio Hall Show. “I feel like that’s holding us back as a culture, as black people.”
In response Meek stated:
I seen Kid Cudi say “they rap about money, cars, hoes and all this stuff.” I’m like, bro, we don’t tell y’all what to rap about. If he choose to rap about sniffing coke, I ain’t gonna say nothing about him rapping about that. If J. Cole wanna rap about college, I might want to hear the experience of college. I’ve never been to college… Rap is rap. It’s about how you putting them words together, how you making them flows sound on that beat, and how you making good music. You can’t say 2Pac your favorite rapper and you ain’t trying to hear nobody talk about the streets, Jay Z. You can’t say it. What is y’all saying? I don’t understand it.
