He was also slated to recover his new album, Passion, Pain Demon Slayin’ final week, though took to Twitter to explain that it had been pushed behind due to representation clearway issues. “Due to some minor sample clearances being finalized, we skip a deadline for tonight,” he wrote. “HOWEVER, we will be means to squeeze ‘FREQUENCY’ and ‘SURFIN’ within a subsequent 48hrs for your groovy pleasure to reason we over.”
Cudi’s rehab explanation also comes shortly after a startling sound-off opposite Kanye West and Drake, dual artists he’s worked with closely, however this hip-hop beef simmered down sincerely quickly.
Following a contentious back-and-forth over accusations that West and Drizzy use spook writers for their rhymes, any bad blood between a dual was put to rest during West’s Houston debate stop on Tuesday evening. While onstage, the 39-year-old father of dual paused to give a “Pursuit of Happiness” performer a special scream out.
West announced Cudi, “the many successful artist of a past 10 years,” after adding, “I only wanted to take this time out to contend Kid Cudi is my hermit and we wish he’s doing well.”
The rappers have both featured any other on their past strike tracks, including “Erase Me,” “All of a Lights,” and many recently on The Life of Pablo‘s “Father Stretch My Hands.” West sealed Cudi to his GOOD Music tag in 2008.
