Rapper Kid Cudi has reportedly ruined plans for the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music Day by pushing his new album Man on the Moon 2 to late September.
According to reports, Cudi's sophomore project will hit stores two weeks later than expected.
The "Day 'N' Nite" rapper's sophomore effort Man on the Moon 2: The Legend of Mr. Rager has a revised release date of September 28, Rap-Up.com has learned. That's two weeks later than its original September 14 date. Hip-hop heavyweights Young Jeezy and T.I. are also set to drop albums that day. (Rap-Up)
G.O.O.D. Music's Big Sean recently announced multiple labelmates' albums set to drop on September 14th including Cudi's new record.
"September 14, 2010 My album Finally Famous x Kanye West album Good A** Job x Kid Cudi album Man on the Moon pt 2 RT #GOODMUSIC," he wrote over the weekend. (Big Sean's Twitter)
Following the announcement, Consequence talked about the date's significance for G.O.O.D. Music.
"Well...the idea for doing the G.O.O.D Music Day emerged between me and [Universal Motown Records President] Sylvia Rhone, just to be quite honest," Cons revealed in an interview. "I'm very communicative with Sylvia Rhone on everything that I do. We had actually met with Kanye one night, and as me and her left the meeting, we left together and I was like, 'Yo, we need to really get this paper right now.' When we left we thought that this is where we need to take advantage of the situation. So...she got on the phone...made some boss calls, and then we got to it. At the time when [Big] Sean announced that [he was also dropping his album on September 14th] I didn't know that he was in the mix of that, but it's all good. But initially, how that sh*t came about was me, Kanye and Kid Cudi. I just hadn't announced it because I know we had things that had to be ironed out. And it got ironed out where it's - 'Cause actually at the end of the day, Kanye being the head of G.O.O.D Music had to approve that. And the approval was based on, 'Let's shake the game up.' Cudi got the kids, Cons got the streets, 'Ye got the globe, so we all gon' eat. [Laughs]" (Hip Hop DX)
Last month, Cudi released his album's lead-off single, "Rev Of Ev."
