Sometimes no response is the best response.

Both Kanye West and Drake have now responded to a fed-up Kid Cudi, who went on a long Twitter rant yesterday against rap artists with multiple writers for every song—calling out West and Drizzy specifically. While Ye kind of buried Cudi with a quick aside during the Tampa leg of his Saint Pablo tour, Drake opted to channel that one co-worker who catches on to trends about four months late for his clap-back.

At least he didn't use a meme this time, though.
