He continued, acknowledging that while he tries to showcase his friends’ work, he needs to go further in celebrating not just his friends but even artists he doesn’t know well but finds talented. “To spread the world, get cool shit out there I think u need to,” he added.

Using this opportunity, Kid Cudi gave a big shoutout to Hit-Boy, saying, “On that note if yall sleepin and aint seein the awesome shit Hit Boy doin yall better get w it.” Additionally, he acknowledged Strick, a Young Thug signee, who has an album coming out soon that Cudi believes will be amazing.

As for Strick, Kid Cudi teamed up with him for the song “Moon Man” from the 2021 compilation album Slime Language 2.

Kid Cudi has a strong relationship with Jaden Smith, having worked together on the song “On My Own” from Jaden’s 2019 album ERYS. Although Jaden was supposed to join Cudi on his INSANO World Tour this year, the tour was canceled due to Cudi breaking his foot at Coachella.

Interestingly, Kid Cudi and Jaden Smith have even hinted at making a full album together. Cudi mentioned earlier this year on X, “Me and Jaden gonna make an album for all the trippy kids out there searchin beyond for something, searchin for that feelin. To be ALIVE.”
