Plus, new updates on Jay Z, The Chainsmokers, Frank Ocean and Tidal.
The BH Buzz is a round-up of stories we wanted to get to today, but… didn’t.
■ In case you missed it… Kid Cudi called out Kanye West and Drake for using a team of songwriters to help craft hit songs, but they ain’t shook.
“I need yall to know I got so many haters within the industry and these clowns know Im bout to crush their entire existance,” Cudi Tweeted. “Everyone thinks they’re soooo great. Talkin top 5 and be having 30 people write songs for them.” He added: “My tweets apply to who they apply. Ye, Drake, whoever. These ****** dont give a **** about me. And they aint ****** with me.”
That prompted a response from West at his Saint Pablo Tour: “Kid Cudi, don’t ever mention Ye name. I birthed you!…Don’t ever say who I can do songs with,” he says. “I’m so hurt. I feel so disrespected. Kid Cudi, we two black men in a racist world. I wore skinny jeans first. I got called names before you, bro. Why y’all gotta be coming at me? This ain’t the end of the Malcolm X movie. I’m out here fighting for y’all. Creatives. Artists. Independent thinkers. Don’t ever mention my name in a bad manner! None of y’all!”

Drake also responded: “Boy, you getting way too high,” he said. “You need to cut it.” Others believe Drake said, “You need to Cudi.”
