Joyner Lucas Looks Out For Kid Cudi

Lucas published the powerful statement through Twitter, declaring that Kid Cudi was still fully capable of beating someone up, even if he wore a dress. JL was likely responding to some negative comments made towards Cudi after his performance regarding him wearing a dress as a man.

“Don’t get it twisted. Cudi will wear a dress and still beat you the f*ck up. ? @KidCudi ??????”

Kid Cudi Sells His SNL Performance Dress

Kid shocked fans with his tribute “SNL” performance of “Tequila Shots.” Not only were there hidden signs to former “SNL” cast member, Chris Farley, from a T-shirt he wore during the first part of his presentation. Cudi also confirmed that he honored Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain by wearing a floral print dress, which Cobain was known to wear in the late 1990s.

The hip-hop star announced that he would be including the dress in his upcoming off-white collection after realizing the impact it had on fans. Cudi also shared that Off-White fashion house head Virgil Abloh had designed the dress for him through a shout out to the designer on social media.

“I’m doin a collection w Off White and the dress will be included!!”

Cudder also vowed to return to “Saturday Night Live” anytime the iconic show wants him back.

“Dream come true!! Love to everyone at SNL for being awesome!! Let me know when u need me again and im THERE ? @nbcsnl And Carey u crushed it!! special shout out to Lorne for havin me!! ❤️??”

Kid Cudi’s Floral SNL Dress

According to reports, Cudder didn’t just happen to rock the jaw-dropping fit. Kid used the outfit to pay homage to late 90’s rocker and Nirvana band leader Kurt Cobain.

The rapper, 37, rocked a maxi-length, spaghetti-strapped floral sundress at one point, and a rumpled green cardigan at another, while performing songs from his latest album on the NBC sketch show. Each was a clear tribute to the late Nirvana frontman, who committed suicide at age 27 on April 5, 1994. “Kid Cudi pulling the ultimate Kurt Cobain tribute on #SNL on the week of his death. @KidCudi all about love and suicide prevention and awareness!!!,” one fan tweeted. The grunge legend famously wore a floral dress on the 1993 cover of now-defunct British magazine The Face a year before his death. Cobain also memorably donned a grubby, cigarette-burned green cardigan during Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged concert in 1993. (Page Six)
