Big Sean Says KiD CuDi Didn’t Tell Anyone He Was Leaving G.O.O.D. Music

Big Sean

KiD CuDi’s recent departure from G.O.O.D Music was a surprise to a lot of people, including his label mates. Big Sean was recently a guest on Power 106 in Los Angeles and discussed his former G.O.O.D. Music brethren’s recent switch up saying there is no love lost between the two. “That’s my brother,” said Sean confirming that CuDi would still appear on his upcoming LP, Hall of Fame. “Me and him making music together. We still crew, whether it’s G.O.O.D. Music or not, that’s my dog.”

Sean went on to say that he was just as surprised as anyone to hear the news of CuDi’s departure. “He didn’t tell anybody about it,” he said. “Somebody hit me up, then I saw it on Twitter. And then I saw yall interview, so I was like damn. That’s his business, though. He doesn’t have to call and let everybody know what he is doing business wise. Even though we a fam. Just cause we aint on the same G.O.O.D. Music label, that’s my homie.”

He also shut down rumors that his recent song “Switch Up” is a veiled diss aimed at Cudder. “Hell naw, that’s the homie,” he confirmed. “No bad energy right there.”

    Someone needs to explain to me why GOOD Music is talked about in such high esteem. They have released exactly 5 albums in this decade – including Cruel Summer – and the only one who even certified Gold was Kuddi who’s gonzo…No one’s had a #1 album – and with garbage like Ryan McDermott on deck – Good won’t even have a major distribution deal by next year when Sean (this is in the works w/ Posner’s team) and Legend leave.

    • Drew Emmerson is a bitch ass

      Cudi had 2 Gold albums. Been certified platinum 6 times. Go fuck yourself and listen to Lil Wayne bitch.

        Can you even read asshole ? I love how you make an argument that’s not relevant to the statement I made. Cocksucker fuck yourself.

        Oh – and Kuddi has ZERO Gold and ZERO Platinum Albums. If you claim otherwise – state your source. The RIAA sure doesn’t agree with you.

          Actually Cudi does have 2 Gold albums. Both of his Albums (MotM 1 and 2) have both gone gold. He’s also had 2 singles go 2x platinum (Day N Nite and Pursuit of Happiness) and another song (Soundtrack 2 My Life) go platinum as well. And if you also count the ARIA and not just the RIAA, going by singles and singles that include him as a featured performer he has been certified Platinum 6 times in total. As a solo performer though, he’s only been certified platinum 3 times with RIAA and 4 times including the ARIA.

      G.O.O.D. Music has actually released 15 albums since 2004 and there has been 1 of them to reach number one, and that was Common’s Finding Forever. Granted, that is all, but with the talent of the artists on G.O.O.D. music, it’s understandable as to why it’s held in a high regard.
