Kid Cudi Recalls Kanye West’s Reaction To His Departure From G.O.O.D. Music

Over the past week, Kid Cudi has been making headlines due to his sudden departure from G.O.O.D. Music to start his own Wicked Awesome imprint. Now, Cudder reveals how Kanye West took the news.

Kid Cudi spoke to the LA Leakers about his conversation with Kanye regarding leaving the G.O.O.D. Music Family. According to Cudi, Yeezy was totally supportive of Cudi parting ways with his imprint, even down to the fact that Cudi asked to have the G.O.O.D. logo removed from his albums.

“I just felt like there was a shift in my creative ventures and things I wanted to do,” he said. “I’ve never been fully signed to G.O.O.D Music. It’s always been a joint venture between me and Kanye…I just wanted to do my own thing, and there’s nothing wrong with that, and I know that there’s nothing wrong with that ’cause I talked to Kanye about it, and he was just like, ‘Yes! Do whatever the fuck you feel is right, I don’t blame you. I feel you on that.’ Even down to, like – it was a big deal for me, but, ‘Yo, so I want to take the G.O.O.D. Music logo off all my albums from here on out. Is that okay?’ And he was like, ‘Man, whatever. Whatever you’ve got to do.'”

He added, “He believes in me, man. He believes in me in such a freakish way that maybe he might not feel like he needs to be on a song with me, or it could be beats or anything like that…I know he’s not like that with everybody.”

Most recently, Big Sean spoke about Cudi’s departure, saying that, “We still crew, whether it’s G.O.O.D. Music or not, that’s my dog.”
