Kanye West recently demonstrated his support for Kid Cudi following their recent resolution of past conflicts. However, fans couldn't help but notice a peculiar detail in Kanye's gesture: he posted a screenshot on his Instagram Stories, ostensibly showing him listening to Cudi's new album "INSANO," but astute observers quickly realized that Kanye had the volume turned down, effectively playing the song on mute.

This curious choice sparked commentary among fans, with some questioning the authenticity of Kanye's public display of support.

"“Why would Kanye post himself listening to Kid Cudi’s album on mute,” "


One X user asked, then another said:

"“Kanye listening to that new Cudi on mute I’m sick.”"


Moreover, West also shared a flyer promoting an upcoming concert by Mike Dean, a collaborator from his past. Yet, it's crucial to acknowledge the strained relationships within this trio. Kanye West and Mike Dean's connection faced challenges during the tumultuous recording sessions for the "DONDA" album in 2021.

Dean openly criticized West for publicly sharing private text messages and disapproved of Kanye's controversial statements during interviews. Additionally, Mike Dean expressed discontent over being excluded from Kid Cudi's project "Moon Man’s Landing," attributing it to jealousy.
