With less than a month away from the release of his third studio album Indicud, Kid Cudi has announced that he is leaving Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label. Cudi announced the decision during an interview on L.A.’s Power 106. “Me and Kanye were actually talking on the phone the other day,” Cudi explained. “About me wanting to start my own direction, and he got because he’s trying to start his own new path, and trying new things as an artist. And he was just like ‘Man, I feel you. It’s cool.’ This is just from a business standpoint. There’s no beef with anyone on the label. It’s all love.”
Cudi added, “I wanna focus on Wicked Awesome, I wanna focus on [King] Chip, and that’s it. I don’t want to have a full label of artists. I just wanna work on Chip and keep my sound going on the Cudi train.”
Indicud is still due out April 23rd through G.O.O.D. Music/Universal Republic.
