Kid Cudi Announces New Album “indicud”; Issues Statement Regarding Roots Picnic No-Show
G.O.O.D. Music recording artist Kid Cudi has revealed the title for his upcoming third solo studio album — indicud.
The Cleveland native took to Twitter early this morning (June 5) with the following message: “My new album is called ‘indicud’, it will be my version of The Chronic 2001, some songs ill produce, others ill feat &/or play songwriter.”
indicud will be the follow-up to Cudi’s previous solo effort, 2010's Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager, which spawned the singles “Erase Me” featuring Kanye West, “REVOFEV”, and “Maniac” which featured Cage and St. Vincent. In April of this year, Cudi and his producing partner Dot Da Genius released their pop-rock project WZRD.
Cudi will also be featured on the highly-anticipated and soon-to-be-released G.O.O.D. Music compilation, Cruel Summer, alongside label mates Kanye West, Big Sean, Pusha T, CyHi Da Prynce, and many more. A visual for Cruel Summer‘s first single, “Mercy,” should be released any day now.
In addition, Cudi, who was set to headline the second day of this past weekend’s 5th Annual Roots Picnic, never made it to the show due to issues with traveling. In a statement released yesterday he said, “I wanna apologize to everyone who came out the Roots Picnic today. Im really bummed out about not being able to come through for yall. Its not my style to flake or be a no show, so ima let everyone know right now what happened.”
“The PJ I was on departed on time. 30mins into the flight the pilots noticed they smelled smoke in the cockpit of the plane and came back to tell us we had to make an emergency stop and land immediately. The closest city was Vegas and we landed there safely. While grounded, we scrambled to get a brand new plane in time but it just couldnt work.
“With actually waitin on the next plane to land then de plane and then fuel wouldve had me in town around 1am maybe later at that point. The events that took place were out of my control, but either way, what happened was some bullshit and im mad. I cant front im mad. Ive had a shitty week and i was lookin forward to being around that energy. It really sux, and Iam very very sorry to all. To The Roots, bravo with another successful picnic otherwise. Im sure everyone had fun with all the other dope acts on the bill. Mad love to all, and thank U for your understanding and concern.”
indicud is slated for release in late 2012 or early 2013.
