Cudi on why he quit smoking weed:

I just wanted people to see me as an artist. People kept calling me the “Stoner MC” and this guy who always related back to marijuana. Marijuana was something I did as a hobby. I just didn’t like being categorized as that because it was such a small part of me and doesn’t define who I am. I hated that.

Cudi on his online presence:

Like, “Look at my page and my website, with some cool graphics” [Laughs.] Dear God, no. Just give me a Tumblr and shit and I’ll post something on there…That’s how in control I am. I’m so in control that I don’t put any intention of my online presence so it fails. [Laughs.] It’s like the only source is Kid Cudi Cover Story Interview Outtakes

    I mean how did he not expect ppl to associate him with weed and take it as being just a small part of his life when almost all of his songs were about it. even the songs that weren’t about weed mentioned it at least once.
