Ever since Drakeand Kid Cudi‘s beef began, loyal fans of both artists have had a hard time choosing which side they’re on.
But many saw Cudi as the victim in the incident (although he started it) because Drake touched on such a sensitive topic as his mental health in his “2 Birds, One Stone” song. In order to make things right again, fans of the Man of the Moon rapper have a major proposition for Drizzy.
According to reports, the creator of the Care2 petition would like Drake to take responsibility for his actions and donate all the money he makes off that track to different mental health charities. The petition states, “Mental health is not a joking manner. According to Mental Health America, the most common disorder amongst suicide victims is depression. Depression or bi-polar disorder affects about 30-70 percent of suicide victims.”
