Kid Cudi Rages Against Record Label

Kid Cudi and Dot Da Genius’ collaborative project, WZRD is in stores today. Can’t find it? Well, according to Cudi it was undershipped. As he’s done in the past, Cudder turned to Twitter and lashed out on the label for its lack of support.

Ok so just a heads up, my weak ass label only shipped 55k physicals cuz they treated this like some indie side project tax right off. So i apologize on behalf of my weak ass major label. And I apologize for the lack of promo, again, my weak ass major label. They tried to rush me thru this so i can just give em another MOTM, but guess what? Fuck that, next album is WZRD. MOTM3 on hold til 2014.

who mad??? not me and @DotDaGenius : ) So its def gonna be tough to find one in the stores guys, I’m sorry about that. I gotta go out and find one too, becuz my weak ass label never even gave us a copy of our own album. FAIL!!! Im lettin Universal Republic have it, fuck it. What they gon’ do, spank me?? hahahaha
AND Teleport 2 Me, Jamie aint on the radio!!!! like helloooooooooo????? HIT HIT HIT!!!

    WZRD!! Damn you Universal now we gotta wait another year for MOTM III

    I love WZRD and all but I miss his raps. But it’s whatever tho WZRD for life!!! Keep rocking out Mr. Rager!!!

  • Word

    This nigga Cudi aint hit 1 million followers yet?

    And I like shit like this. I like when the artist publicly embarrasses the labels. Let the fans know what REALLY went on cuz these labels aint shit.

  • Hip-Hop Fiend

    This is why I fuck with Cudi. Fuck Universal. Wzrd Album is dope.

  • linsanity

    I bet most fans were looking more forward to another man on the moon then another wzrd lol

  • Los

    “WZRD” is a phenomenal album!!! If you haven’t heard it yet, don’t criticize it.


    WZRD is on Spotify now. I was just listening to it a little bit ago

  • nik

    maybe no one cares and they want you to put out MOTM 3 cause youre a rapper and not a fuckin rockstar…

  • Dex

    WZRD sucks. It’s like bad rock, made by people that don’t understand the genre. And if Kid Cudi really does come from the heart on his shit, then he’s got to be the most self-obsessed, shallow douche ever. Every single song is about himself and how much you must love him or else you just don’t understand.

  • Mellz

    This WZRD album is real but damn we gotta wait until 2014 for MOTM3 smh

  • Your Father

    Oh God no, not another WRZD album.
    Don’t really like that shit.
    I need a MOTM III.
    Fuck Universal in the ass with a new pair of gators.

  • Los

    #1 on iTunes! #CUDDER^

  • Hmmm

    WZRD is a good piece of art

  • NYNigga

    WZRD is a good album but waiting til 2014 for MOTM III is a slap in his fans face! Especially since he cancelled the “A Man Named Scott” mixtape and claimed he would start MOTM III right away. Smh

  • man…

    i bought it from Best Buy, it’s pretty dope. But this really isn’t good news on two fronts, it’s shitty that this album is being underpromoted and while I like WZRD, I want another MoTM, this was a cool side project but I’d rather have Cudi rapping again.

  • coco loco

    promo stunt.

  • Ricky Retardo

    iTunes? like really. the promo was mediocre but the shipments was what it should be considering the label didn’t support it. Cudi knew that already, why black out now?

  • veesky

    I feel for him, as a fan…but he kinda contradicts himself in his new Complex cover story

  • Los

    Hopefully he’ll cool off and get back to working on MOTM3. WZRD was great, but I really don’t want to wait 2 more years for him to be back on the moon…

  • SmokeYou

    Somebody punch this pos in the face. He acts like the label NEEDS him.

  • FlocKaveLLi

    Good for him. still digesting the WZRD album. not sure how i feel about it yet

  • Thats why i say always go independent!!! When will we learn.. Thats why south niggas make so much money, fucc a record label!!!!!

    Hot New West Coast!!! Music via @HotNewHipHop … get your free downloads!!!!

  • zezzoi

    so because of his label, he’s punishing his fans by not giving them another MOTM album til 2014? Rationale thinking, cudder…. SMH

  • d

    the album is blowing up itunes lol

  • wow

    Funny how people are complaining that they want motm 3 yet wzrd is number one on itunes..obviously fans ride wit him..and if you don’t like wzrd go find rap music..niggas act like man on the moon 1 or 2 were so lyrically gifted albums smh

  • wow

    Wzrd isn’t any different then erase me,pursuit of happiness,ghost,all along!don’t see it any different. Just another cudder album

  • Tru

    There isn’t a single song on WZRD that’s even close to as good as “Erase Me” or “Ghost!”, and neither of them were Cudi’s best. “Pursuit of Happiness” only serves to highlight exactly how depreciated Cudi has become as an artist. WZRD’s music can be much more easily compared to “Prom Queen” and some of the garbage on Rebirth, or maybe that universally despised new Metallica album.

  • Style-LIN on you

    @wow, Co-sign your comments! Thank You!

  • Dr. Dre’s Ass

    Diva Cudi

  • HOVA

    We have to be real with ourselves, this WZRD album sucks ass crap. And the single he’s calling a hit isn’t even close to being a hit compared to the hit singles out today. I completely understand his label trying to rush him on this weak ass project. Kid Cudi should give the fans a little of what they want, the days of music experimenting and shit are over.

  • ima scrub

    2014??!! dam worlds gonna end this year tho

  • Ocean Frank

    Aye it’s all good Cud, I copped that torrent game so I don’t need to be searchin out any CDs…

  • Manj

    I’m a big fan of Cudi, but damn that WZRD album suck donkey balls.

  • Mj

    I aint a cudi fan, and I know universal, if they only shipped 50k copies , the album had to be garbage

  • J smooth

    Fuck the label, all they care about Is making money and that’s wtf Is wrong with the music Industry today all they care Is about MONEY. Keep doing you’re thing Cudder and being you’re own man and artist don’t let the music Industry turn you Into there puppet to make them money. Keep using you’re talents and making music from your soul. Stay up Kid Cudi and god bless.

  • MossbergB.

    who cares about WZRD really? They undershipped that sh!t cuz they dont trust no Cudi rock album, i know i wouldnt. IF all of those 55k sell then i would release more copies until then fuck you and prove WZRD aint no bullshit he couldve gave away for free

  • MossbergB.

    its official i know why that album was undershipped…………………… IT FUKKKKKIN SUX!!! I heard it (for free) and it sux! i wouldnt buy it

  • wow

    just copped that digital copy….great sound… this dude is definitely a wizard

  • Get Real

    I skipped 3 songs on the WZRD album. Gotta say it’s a pretty solid effort and will grow on me w/ every listen. Universal did him dirty tho, I did not know that album was out either and Teleport isn’t on the radio @ ALL. I smell another Lupe-esk label beef for Cudi. #letsseewhathappensnext

  • bob

    somebody have a link?

  • Jus Sayin’

    Kid Cudi should’ve made the entire WZRD album with RATATAT and that would of been a legendary/classic experimental album.

  • Kid Cudi

  • whatever

    kid cudi fans are ride or die fans…if you say 2014 i guess we will have to bump the old shit until then ! what i like about him is that he doesnt sell out to anyone and he just does what ever he likes

  • Los

    WORD^ #Cudder4Life

  • I was tight that he didnt get any promo money for this album. I just happened to walk passed it in a target and was like “oh shit this came out today!?” shit pissed me off. BUT He is hurting us the fans by not giving us another man on the moon album. I support him with anything he puts out but damn my nigga THAT type of music (MOTM) is what made us ur fans to begin with..

    either way chill out bcuz we all seen what happened to LUPE… diss the labels and drop one of the worst albums in the history of history lol

  • Ant

    Didn’t hear a single thing about this.

  • Alex

    Cudi is a whiny bitch, album sucked, I can’t believe people liked this album, if a normal rock star released WZRD no one would like it.

  • Edwin

    Kid Cudi Is Nice def one of my influences…
    Check out this stay schemin cover/remix

  • MR.M.

    ima big cudi fan BUT WZRD was ehhhh….i understand him tryin to do somthin different, but i prefer him doin mixtapes and more of MOTM. @ just sayin’ i agree i think he would have killed itT with RATATAT but oh well 2014 is a long wait…if he is still exist then

  • MR.M.

    big fan hate wzrd i want motm…fuck this website

  • Eww

    WZRD sucks MOTM is the best

  • Very appropriate,

  • optimusGrimes

    This nigga being greedy. He can suck my fucking cock. I love Scott but to do this to his fans just to piss someone off is total cunt. I don’t care when it comes out but to hold it off JUST BECAUSE THE FUCKING LABEL is a CUNT MOVE. This nigga saved my fucking life and the way he treats his fans is total garbage. We back him up in everything, Brake has to be the worst fucking song conceived, it had like 5 lines of words, that shit ain’t music. I love kid cudi, I don’t know what the fuck it is I’ll always back him up but I just fucking wished he would show the same fucking love to the fans.
