Kid Cudi is currently on Power 106 LA talking about INDICUD and he just announced he is no longer on G.O.O.D. Music. He says there is no beef, everything is good, he just wanted to go in a new direction to focus on his label Wicked Awesome Records.
UPDATE: Watch video of his announcement here.
“I wanna focus on Wicked Awesome, I wanna focus on [King] Chip, and that’s it. I don’t want to have a full label of artists. I just wanna work on Chip and keep my sound going on the Cudi train.”
“Man, everything is cool. Everything is peace with everyone on the label, but I’m announcing that I’m no longer on GOOD Music. And this is something that no one knows really. I’m no longer on GOOD Music. Me and Kanye were actually talking on the phone the other day, and there’s been things I wanted to talk to him about. About me wanting to start my own direction, and he got because he’s trying to start his own new path, and trying new things as an artist. And he was just like ‘Man, I feel you. It’s cool.’ This is just from a business standpoint. There’s no beef with anyone on the label. It’s all love.”
UPDATE #2: Kid Cudi says he knew he was leaving G.O.O.D. six months ago, talked to Jay-Z about the decision, and that Kanye is his “big brother forever.”
