Kid Cudi has been a bit of a WTF story over the past few years. Mr. Rager exploded onto the scene with a couple of mixtapes and a couple solid albums, some that people may even call classics of the 2010 era. He caught the attention of Kanye West and Jay Z while appealing to the indie crowd with MGMT samples. At one point, he was destined to be the next greatest thing in rap music. Then he stopped making rap.

Although it doesn’t yet have a release date, Kid Cudi’s Speedin’ Bullet To Heaven seems like it could arrive any day now.

Details on the album are scarce thus far, but the Cleveland MC has said that it’ll be largely based around live instrumentation and won’t have any featured vocalists.

Kid Cudi recently revealed that he'd be following up his 2015 release, Speedin Bullet 2 Heaven, with a new project with an equally memorable title, Passion, Pain & DEMON SLAYIN’. while it already seemed ambitious to announce a new album less than 6 months after his last full length, Cudi now reports that he has two albums on the way this year, one for summer and one for fall.

Since debuting in 2008, XXL's annual Freshman Class feature has had its fair share of questionable choices (such as Kidd Kidd appearing a full eight years after we first heard him on "Mrs. Officer") and flops, not to mention numerous omissions of rappers who've gone onto stardom. It's never exactly been considered a finger-on-the-pulse-type source for new talent, but rather a conversation starter and surface-level barometer for casual hip-hop hobbyists.

Kid Cudi has been hard to predict over the last few years, and it seems his upcoming album, Speedin' Bullet To Heaven, is yet another curveball.Addressing fans in Twitter, Cudi gave an update on the project, which he revealed in 98% done. More interestingly, the rapper revealed that not only will SBTH be entirely self-produced (with some assistance from Plain Pat), there will be a complete absence of electronic sounds, as the instrumentals will consist entirely of his own guitar and bass playing.

We're quickly approaching the holidays, which means the year-end lists are in full effect. While many of us are looking back at the abundance of great music that's dropped over the past 50 weeks, some of our favorite rappers are showing no signs of showing down.

While Cudi has seemingly been keeping a low profile from a public standpoint, it turns out he's been working hard on both acting and music in over the last year. While we heard news that he just wrapped filming a new movie with Zoe Kravitz last week, the Man On The Moon had a premiere at Sundance just this weekend, acting in and providing the score for Josh Mond's "James White".

Kid Cudi is coming back into the fray in more ways than one. He recently announced his next album, the feature-less Speedin' Bullet to Heaven, will be out "really really soon," and next week, we can catch Cudder in the "Entourage" movie, in which he'll play Ari Gold's personal assistant. There's long been both music and acting for Cudi but, this morning, we found out he also fancies himself quite the poet.

What a tumultuous last few days it's been. Reports of Prince's sudden passing rocked us on Thursday, but then hours later we got a new A$AP Ferg album. About 48 hours after that, Lemonade arrived, effectively shutting down everything else on the internet at the time.

The trend of surprise albums has definitely caused a shift in the traditional method of releasing music. Interviews, music videos and singles are still protocol (well, usually), but we’ve watched the likes of Jay Z, Beyonce, Kanye West, Skrillex, J. Cole etc. trade customary release dates for something a little more exciting and spontaneous.

A few weeks ago Kid Cudi sent out a lengthy series of tweets, venting about his place in the music industry and his own personal demons.

Kanye West Brings Out Jeezy & Kid Cudi For "808s & Heartbreak" Show, Experiences Technical Difficulties Sep 26, 2015 at 11:25am
Last night (Sept. 25), Kanye West performed 1 of 2 "808s & Heartbreak" shows at the Hollywood Bowl. It's been nearly 7 years since 'Ye released his 4th studio album, which is now hailed as one of the most game-changing hip-hop releases of the past decade. For his back to back shows in L.A., West wanted to perform the album front-to-back. He attempted to do just that on night 1, though, unfortunately, the performance proceeded more as a "dress rehearsal" than a seamless rendition of the album.
