Drizzy refuses to apologise.
Drake has responded to critics on social media after he dissed Kid Cudi for having a mental illness.
“You were the man on the moon, now you just go through your phases , life of the angry and famous,” he raps.
“You stay xanned and perked up , so when reality set in you don't gotta face it.
“Look what happens soon as you talk to me crazy…. Is you crazy?”
Shortly after the song was premiered, some fans expressed their disappointment at Drake’s lyrics.

"Supposed to be all live out here word to my bro Pablo.”
Before admitting himself into rehab for “depression” and “suicidal urges”, Kid Cudi announced that he would be postponing the release of his new album ‘Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’, while he made a recovery.
