Kid Cudi opened up about reconciling his relationship with Kanye West.

During a recent interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, the INSANO rapper addressed his years-long public beef with West. “It’s like friendships. Really, it’s beyond friendship. It’s about when it’s brotherly, sisterly s**t, family s**t. It’s just a little bit more complicated,” Kid Cudi explained. “And siblings hurt you the most. So you go through things, but family is always there. You don’t give up on family.”

He continued, “This is someone who is my brother, ultimately, who came into my life, and championed me, and did things for me that nobody else did for me early on in my career. People don’t even know that Kanye paid for the first ‘Day ‘n’ Nite’ video when I didn’t have a deal.”

The 39-year-old continued, “He’s learning and he’s growing. He knows he made some mistakes and I think that that’s the beauty of it. This is a beautiful thing. He knows he’s been on one h**l of a ride. He’s said some things that he might not be able to come back from in a lot of realms, in a lot of spaces, from certain people. But we grow, and I pray for him, and that’s my brother. And the reason why we became cool again is because he apologized to me, and it was sincere. I was just like, ‘Wow. Kanye does not apologize to anybody [or] say ‘Sorry’ to anyone.’” Check out the full interview below.
