CHICAGO - AUG 01: Kid Cudi performs at 2015 Lollapalooza at Grant Park on August 1, 2015 in Chicago, Illinois

Kid Cudi shared his last text message exchange with the late Virgil Abloh on Twitter Wednesday. The late fashion designer and Cudi exchanged thoughts on his fit for Miami to show off his newly dyed hair.

The “Moon” rapper also posted a sweet tribute to the late fashion icon on Instagram saying meeting someone like him was “once in a lifetime.”

It’s taken me a few days to make this post. Tryna find the right words. Virgil was the kindest most warmest soul I’ve ever met. He was a true visionary, genius, disrupter, epic DJ and artist, but he was also just truly a beautiful human. I’ve never known anyone quite like him. And I know i never will. Once in a lifetime.

Virgil, I thank u for being a true friend and always makin me feel special when u sent a text, made time for me to hang or sent some shoes w my name on them. I love you endlessly. Til we meet again my friend. I hope u see what you’ve done. You changed the world forever. You did that. I love you Virgil. Goodbye my friend

Your brother,


Cudi also honored his friend by performing “Moon” at Virgil’s last Louis Vuitton show Wednesday night in addition to walking the runway which he had done prior in Virgil’s first LV show.
