Kid Cudi: Yeah. Most of my groupies are spawns of the devil. [Laughs.] Theyâ€™re there to take me off track and fuck up my purpose. Itâ€™s like the dark side is trying to pull me in. Who wouldnâ€™t like a bunch of hot-ass bitches saying, â€œHey, we all wanna fuck you right now!â€? [Laughs.] But you have to realize that itâ€™s an illusion, that you can get caught up, turn into a person that you never knew you could beâ€”and I donâ€™t wanna be that dude.
Kid Cudi: â€œWeirdâ€ itself, even in the dictionary, is just something that is different and unexplainable. A weirdo is someone who follows their heart. Iâ€™m definitely weird, ainâ€™t nothing wrong with that.
Kid Cudi: I think itâ€™s just that Drake and me are the most creative out of the new up-and-coming MCs. Me and Drake are here not because of anything other than two niggas that have their own flavor. Iâ€™m doing my shit, nobody else can do my shit. Nobody else can do Waleâ€™s shit or Charles Hamiltonâ€™s shit. Itâ€™s like a bunch of Kool-Aid stands. It just matters whose flavor you like the most.
Kid Cudi: Kanye is inspired by everybody around him. Heâ€™s inspired by life. So yeah, he kind of drew inspiration from everyone around him at that moment when it came to 808s & Heartbreak.
Kid Cudi: Well, I canâ€™t reveal numbers. But they were completely fair in giving me my credit and shit like that. It was a good experience and it was definitely lucrative.
You played me an outtake, which has to be the first love song Iâ€™ve ever heard about tripping on mushrooms with a girl .
