Rich recently shared his thoughts on the “BS w/ Jake Paul” podcast as to why “The Land” doesn’t embrace the “Day N Nite” rapper after all his success over the years. Well, those words didn’t sit well with Cudi, who says LeBron James‘ agent couldn’t be further from the truth, and ripping him for making bogus assumptions.
Cudi says he actually returns to Cleveland all the time — it’s where his mom lives — he’s just not all about going to Cleveland sporting events or bars … when he’s back, it’s family time.
He also noted his Moon Man’s Landing festival in 2023 brought 20k people from the city together … with plans to do it again in the future.
Jake Paul took shots at Cudi too, accusing him of leaving the city behind, while also revealing he asked Cudi to walk out with him when he fought Tyron Woodley in Cleveland a few years back. JP says Cudi wanted wayyy too much money, and wasn’t about to give a hometown discount.
As for Cudi’s side, he let Jake know there’s no hometown discount for a rapper of his caliber, ESPECIALLY for an event that doesn’t reflect his brand … the price is the price, champ.
