Pusha T found himself stuck in the middle of Kanye West and Kid Cudiâ€™s feud.
On Friday, Pusha released his new album Itâ€™s Almost Dry featuring a collaboration with Cudi and Ye called â€œRock N Roll.â€ Prior to the songâ€™s release, Cudi announced that it would be his final collaboration with Ye amid their estranged relationship.
â€œHey! So I know some of you heard about the song I got w Pusha. I did this song a year ago when I was still cool w Kanye. I am not cool w that man,â€ he tweeted.
However, he agreed to clear the song because of his friendship with Pusha. â€œHeâ€™s not my friend and I only cleared the song for Pusha cuz thats my guy. This is the last song u will hear me on w Kanye.â€

In an interview with Vulture, Pusha was asked about the feud between his friends.
â€œIt fu**ing sucks. You know Cudi is my fu**ing brother to the end,â€ he said. â€œJust navigating these relationships, this brotherhood, the arguing â€¦ it gets public. Itâ€™s one thing for us to argue. We all argue â€” thatâ€™s not a problem. It gets out there, whether itâ€™s Ye bickering first, or Cudi coming back with what he says. Itâ€™s super-fu**ed up.â€
Pusha recalled that there was â€œso much great energyâ€ when they were in the studio making the record, which samples BeyoncÃ©â€™s â€œ1+1.â€
â€œThe day we made this record, everybody was so fu**ing happy. Yeâ€™s chopping the BeyoncÃ© sample,â€ he said. â€œCudi happens to come in that day. We see each other, and I hadnâ€™t seen him in a while. Heâ€™s like, â€˜I gotta get on a record. Are you crazy?â€™ Cudi did, like, three or four different references. BeyoncÃ© cleared the sample. There was so much great energy around the making of that record.â€
Ye and Cudiâ€™s relationship soured after Ye said Cudi wouldnâ€™t be on DONDA 2 because of his friendship with Kim Kardashianâ€™s boyfriend, Pete Davidson. Cudi fired back by calling Ye a â€œdinosaur.â€
However, Pusha is grateful that Cudi cleared the song despite his bad blood with Ye. â€œCudi really doubling down on this being the last time weâ€™re going to hear them two together,â€ he said. â€œHeâ€™s a super-convicted motherfu**er. So I appreciate him clearing it up. He did what he did for his bro, and I love him for that.â€
