Kid Cudi Returns to Twitter, Preps New Album and Mixtape
Back in December 2009, Kid Cudi said he was quitting Twitter and Facebook and never coming back. But when it comes to hip-hop, never say “never.” The lonely stoner triumphantly returned to the social networking realm yesterday, firing up a Twitter account under the handle @wizardcud and giving updates on existing and new projects.
For his first tweet back, Cudders wrote, “uh oh,” and followed with “yes, it’s true. its me, the real wizard. [...] man so much love already, ima go get my s— together for today and return shortly. spread the word.”
When he returned, the Cleveland native revealed that he’s eyeing a summer release for his third album, which he previously announced would be a rock album dubbed ‘Wizard’ with producer Dot da Genius. “pushing for a summer release of the wizard album. i produce and play guitar on everything with my main man @dotdagenius, he’s learnin bass,” he wrote. “wizard is a rock album, no raps, just singing. brand new thing. flavor.”
Additionally, Cudi explained that he’s still working on his ‘Maniac’ film with Shia LaBoeuf and Cage, but that he’s waiting until it’s perfect. “the maniac film will b released later this year. cage, shia and I really want everything just right, and i need the proper time for scoring,’ he wrote. ‘the edit must be epic.”
And for fans of his rapping, the ‘Day ‘N Night’ singer is recording for Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s ‘Watch the Throne,’ and will release a new rap mixtape dubbed ‘A Man Named Scott’ this summer. “that’s this summah. For all those who fucks with my raps, this is for u since ima be all rocked out with the wizard shit. also its free! yes!”
