Drake Is Under Fire For Making Fun Of Kid Cudi's Mental Health in His New Track
Listen to it here.

Drake is widely recognised as being the most sensitive, feelings-having rapper in the history of the genre.
With self-pitying tracks like 'I Get Lonely Too' and 'Marvin's Room', the Canadian crooner has carved out a niche as a considered, sympathetic guy in a game full of single-minded bastards.
But Drake is coming under some scrutiny from rap fans who feel like he's taken unnecessary shots at Kid Cudi—and his widely reported mental health problems—in a new diss track released last night.
Talking about Cudi, who has recently checked in to rehab for depression and suicidal urges, in 'Two Birds One Stone', he says: "You were the Man on the Moon, now you just go through your phases. Life of the angry and the famous," (a reference to Cudi's first and most popular record, Man On The Moon)
The line is seen as a retaliation to Kid Cudi's earlier digs aimed towards the Views rapper. In September, Cudi accused Drake of using ghost writers, before ranting about Drake (and Kanye West) on stage for their seeming lack of support in his career.
Kanye West has since buried the hatchet with Cudi, but it seems Drake isn't ready to let the issue lie, despite the rapper's evident mental health issues.
