It's official - Cudi's gone for GOOD.
As reported by MissInfo, Kid Cudi has announced his departure from Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music label. He made the announcement earlier today during an interview with Power 106 LA, and is aiming to make his own way and properly develop his artist King Chip. There have been warning signs leading up to this - Cudi has alluded to it on Twitter, and the official Indicud tracklist lacks features from the G.O.O.D. Music roster.
Although his former labelmates hadn't been informed until now, Yeezy is apparently okay with the move:
"Man, everything is cool. Everything is peace with everyone on the label, but I’m announcing that I’m no longer on G.O.O.D. Music. And this is something that no one knows really. I’m no longer on G.O.O.D. Music... Me and Kanye were actually talking on the phone the other day, and there’s been things I wanted to talk to him about. About me wanting to start my own direction, and he got because he’s trying to start his own new path, and trying new things as an artist. And he was just like ‘Man, I feel you. It’s cool.’ This is just from a business standpoint. There’s no beef with anyone on the label. It’s all love."
Listen to the interview in its entirety below, and let us know what you think. Indicud is scheduled to drop on April 23rd.
