Following up to their latest cover story with Kid Cudi, Complex has released outtakes from the interview as they discuss why he quit smoking weed, the illuminati, MOTM III and even DatNewCudi.com.
We’ve highlighted a few quotes form the interview below but make sure to read the full thing on Complex.com.
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 DatNewCudi.com.
