It's official - Cudi's gone for GOOD.
As reported by MissInfo, Kid Cudi has announced his departure from Kanye West'sÂ G.O.O.D. Music label. He made the announcement earlier todayÂ during an interviewÂ withÂ Power 106 LA, and isÂ aiming toÂ make his own way andÂ properlyÂ developÂ his artistÂ King Chip. There have been warning signs leading up to this - Cudi hasÂ alluded to it on Twitter, and the officialÂ IndicudtracklistÂ lacksÂ features from theÂ G.O.O.D. Music roster.Â
AlthoughÂ his formerÂ labelmates hadn't been informed until now, Yeezy is apparently okay with the move:Â
"Man, everything is cool. Everything is peace with everyone on the label, but Iâm announcing that Iâm no longer on G.O.O.D. Music. And this is something that no one knows really. Iâm no longer on G.O.O.D. Music...Â Me and Kanye were actually talking on the phone the other day, and thereâs been things I wanted to talk to him about. About me wanting to start my own direction, and he got because heâs trying to start his own new path, and trying new things as an artist. And he was just like âMan, I feel you. Itâs cool.â This is just from a business standpoint. Thereâs no beef with anyone on the label. Itâs all love."Â
Listen to the interview in its entirety below, and let us know what you think. IndicudÂ is scheduled to dropÂ on April 23rd.Â
