Adopting the name @wizardcud, rapper-turned-rocker Kid Cudi returned to Twitter yesterday after a lengthy absence, and proceeded to give scraps of info about several upcoming releases he’s got lined up. The biggies: the album from his and Dot Da Genius’ band Wizard, and a mixtape called A Man Named Scott.
“what uppppp, everybody good? i hope so. i missed yall on some real shit,” Cudder greeted the Twitterverse. He then posted info about what he’s got up his creative sleeve. To begin with, he tweeted, “pushing for a summer release of the wizard album. i produce and play guitar on everything with my main man @dotdagenius. he’s learnin bass.”
Cudi described the LP as “a rock album, no raps, just singing.”
Next up the 26-year-old artist mentioned the short film based on his Man On The Moon II: The Legend Of Mr. Rager track “Maniac,” which was directed by Shia LaBeouf: “the maniac film will b released later this year. cage, shia and i really want everything just right, and i need the proper time for scoring… the edit must be epic.”
But it’s not all guitars picks and whammy bars for Kid Cudi. He also dropped news about his hip hop mixtape A Man Named Scott. “thats this summah. for all those who fucks with my raps, this is for u since ima be all rocked out with the wizard shit,” he tweeted. “also its free! yes!”
Curiously, the talkative (tweetative?) Cudi even touched on his strange November appearance on BET’s 106 & Park, where the GQ model appeared at times to be three sheets to the wind. His explanation? “for the record, i was not on drugs on 106 n park, i jus dont like how they treated me and my team and i had to do something. my world.”
And there you have it. Are you looking forward to Cudi’s new change in musical direction?
