Kid Cudi asks Lupe Fiasco about his $500 personalized verses on Twitter, questioning the rapper's motive, and Lupe responds.
The other day Lupe Fiasco took to Twitter to declare a new initiative for his fans. Lupe announced he'd be offering up a personalized one verse song for fans for the price of $500. He made it clear this is not for a feature or collaboration, but for the fan's own personal enjoyment.
There were some stipulations of course, one of which is that you would have to come pick up a physical copy of the CD in person, pay the $500 in cash, and sign a usage contract. The whole endeavor has left some people scratching their heads, one of whom appears to be Kid Cudi.
When Cudder got wind of this $500 personalized verse, he took to Twitter to openly question it. He tweeted at Lupe, "Are u givin some of this money ur about to make to a charity orrrr??" to which Lupe confirmed he'd be pocketing the dollars himself, just like any other verse. Cudi proceeded to offer up a warning to his own fans. In the end it doesn't seem like this'll result in full out beef, but you can read the full back and forth below, which involves Kermit the Frog memes (so necessary).
