Kid Cudi Un-Retires

Kid Cudi has changed his mind about retiring, a move that’s not surprising to his fans.

The artist explained his change at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas.

“I had my little ‘Spiderman II’/Peter Parker moment. You know, how Peter Parker didn’t want to be Spiderman no more, because his personal life was so f**ked up?” he said. “But, he was just killin’ s**t as Spiderman? I was killin’ s**t as Kid Cudi, but my personal life was just so f**ked up.”

The singer/rapper recognized his need to perform as well as his fans adoration of his talent.

“I understand that I need y’all and y’all need me,” he said. “So I can’t stop. No more retiring…I’m here to say. I don’t know what I was on.”

Last week, the rapper claimed he was retiring, citing the drama associated with the music industry had gotten too weighty.
