Kid Cudi emphasizes the need for more “love and support” in Hip Hop, highlighting his commitment to celebrating talent. He expressed his thoughts via X (formerly Twitter), stating, “We need more love and support for one another in hip hop man. I gotta do better too.” Cudi acknowledged the importance of promoting others’ work, saying, “I try to show homies work sometime but I gotta really celebrate what my homies do or even people I dont know I think are dope.”

He praised Hit-Boy, Strick, and Jaden Smith, urging fans not to overlook their contributions. “On that note if yall sleepin and aint seein the awesome shit Hit Boy doin yall better get w it,” he added, while also mentioning Strick’s upcoming album and expressing anticipation for Jaden’s work.

Kid Cudi has a history of collaboration with Hit-Boy, including tracks like “Red Eye” and “Old School Caddy.” He also teamed up with Strick on “Moon Man,” featured on the YSL rapper’s 2021 compilation. Additionally, Cudi and Jaden collaborated on “On My Own” from Jaden’s ERYS album.

Despite canceling his INSANO World Tour due to a foot injury, Cudi maintains a strong bond with Jaden. They’ve hinted at a joint project, with Cudi expressing on X earlier this year, “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.”
