Kid Cudi Blasts His Label, Universal Republic, on Twitter
Following the release of his WZRD album with producer Dot da Genius today (February 28th), Kid Cudi took to Twitter to express his appreciation for his supporters and to apologize on behalf of his “weak ass major label,” Universal Republic, for not shipping what he deemed to be sufficient copies of the album to stores.
“I just wanna say Thank You from the bottom of my heart to everyone who is supporting WZRD," Cudder posted. "Words cant express how i feel right now. I mean like seriously who has better fans than me???? So fucking open minded and smart. Just like me. Making jams for kids like me... Man im so happy today! Nothing can steal my joy right now.”
But 30 minutes later, presumably following a plethora of complaints regarding WZRD being unavailable in stores, Cudi began bashing his label with a string of spiteful tweets.
“Ok so just a heads up, my weak ass label only shipped 55k physicals cuz they treated this like some indie side project tax right off.," he wrote. “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.”
The artist continued displaying his dissatisfaction by stating: “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.”
Mr. Rager didn’t stop there. “So its def gonna be tough to find one in the stores guys, I'm sorry about that,” he wrote. “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," he added. "What they gon' do, spank me?? hahahaha... AND Teleport 2 Me, Jamie aint on the radio!!!! like helloooooooooo????? HIT HIT HIT!!!.” —Christian Bonoan @chrisakachise
