Cleveland based rapper Kid Cudi has recently lashed out at his record label, Universal Republic, for under producing physical copies of his new album WZRD. Cudi, otherwise known as Mr. Rager, slammed the label via his twitter account for only shipping 55 thousand copies of the new record. The rapper also claims the label did not promote his new project and intended to rush the release. Kid Cudi had this to say to his fans:
“My weak ass label only shipped 55k physicals cuz they treated this like some indie side project tax right off,” tweeted Cudi. “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.”
The new project, collaborated with Dot Da Genius, has hit #1 on iTunes and is certainly a “can’t miss” for Cudi fans.
