Well something we wished would never happen has. It appears as if Kid Cudi and Kanye West are now beefing and from someone who has enjoyed their collaborations, it's pretty heartbreaking.

When Kid Cudi and Kanye West get on a track together it's magic. Take the most recent hit, "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1" for example.

With just Cudi's ad-libs and harmonizing hums, the song is legendary.

In fact, when fans heard that Cudi and Kanye were back in the studio they began to rejoice because everyone knew how important it was following Cudi's exit from G.O.O.D. Music.

While Cudi went a different route musically, he still managed to be a huge influence on artists like Travis Scott who is often regarded as a protege of Kanye. These two artists are adored by their fans and it's pretty heartbreaking to see two close friends call each other out in a negative manner.

It would be interesting to hear what artists like Travis Scott have to say about this situation but the odds are, he may not want to speak on for fear of having to pick sides.

"Kid Cudi don't ever mention Ye name..," said Kanye to the Tampa crowd.

"I birthed you we all dealing with that emo sh*t all the, [Plain] Pat, Don C. Don't ever mention Ye name, don't try to say who I can do songs with.

You mad because I'm doing songs with Drake, can't nobody tell Ye who to do songs with. Respect the God."

It was a direct response to a series of tweets Cudi sent out one in particular where he stated that Drake and Kanye don't care about him anymore.

It led to Kanye revealing that he was hurt after seeing the comments and added that he and Cudi were two black men in a racist world, as if to say this beef shouldn't exist.

It's our hopes that Kanye and Cudi can resolve their issues and get back to making some incredible music together.

You can watch the complete breakdown of Cudi's tweets and video footage of Kanye's live rant addressing the situation at his Tampa stop on The Saint Pablo Tour.
