Earlier this year, during an interview with Arsenio Hall, Kid Cudi told the talk-show host that hip-hop artists should do a better job selecting the topics that rap about beyond wealth.

Meek Mill, however, ain’t tryna hear anything of that. The Philly-bred MC worked hard for his success and he’s emphatic about displaying that as a means of motivation.

So, in his own interview, with the Breakfast Club, Meek had this to say:

I seen Kid Cudi say “they rap about money, cars, hoes and all this stuff.” I’m like, bro, we don’t tell y’all what to rap about. If he choose to rap about sniffing coke, I ain’t gonna say nothing about him rapping about that. If J. Cole wanna rap about college, I might want to hear the experience of college. I’ve never been to college… Rap is rap. It’s about how you putting them words together, how you making them flows sound on that beat, and how you making good music. You can’t say 2Pac your favorite rapper and you ain’t trying to hear nobody talk about the streets, Jay Z. You can’t say it. What is y’all saying? I don’t understand it.
