Kid Cudi Splits From G.O.O.D. Music
Kid Cudi chatted with Power 106’s DJ Felli Fell and shared that he’s no longer a member of G.O.O.D. Music. “[I’ve known] for at least like six months,” Cudi explained. “I’m very forward-thinking. I’m like, ‘Next year, I want to be doing this.’”
Prior to making his decision, Kid Cudi said he sought out advice from Don C and Jay Z.
“I kind of knew where I wanted to go,” Cudi further explained. “Then I was trying to figure out what the right decision would be…how to talk to him about it. I went through a process where I talked to Don C, and then I went and talked to Jay-Z. I got their opinions about how to approach things that I wanted to talk to him about it. Everybody gave me their blessings on how I was approaching it.”
Felli Fell then asked Cudi, “What if I had Kanye on the phone right now and he wanted to talk to you about it?”
“That would be awesome,” Cudi responded. “‘Cause he would be like, ‘Man, Cudi is the illest.’ That’s my big brother like forever. I’ll smack the dog piss out of somebody for Kanye, man. It’s not like some beef thing; it’s just business. I got Jay and Don C’s opinions, because I’ve never wanted to offend [Kanye].
“I didn’t know how he would take it. I was like, ‘Man, I do not want to make my brother mad.’ Me and Kanye have never bumped heads, we’ve never argued…we’ve never been in heated conversations ever. It’s always been peace, and I was like, ‘Man, I don’t want to start now.’ I really went out of my way to make sure what I was feeling was justified and it was okay to bring it to the table. And ‘Hov reassured me like, ‘Man, I hear it in your tone that it’s genuine. And everything that your saying to me…I know Kanye, and I know he’ll be receptive to that. I know he’ll honor it.”
Cudi’s upcoming album,Indicud is set to release April 23.
