Former G.O.O.D Music artist Kid Cudi recently updated fans on the status of his upcoming Man on the Moon III solo album and what supporters can expect from the series' final installment.
With a more mature outlook on life, Cudder said his forthcoming release should help spark awareness and promote better decision-making.
"You'll see it coming from a person who is looking at things from a more mature mindset, with more understanding and growth. I want people to be able to put this album on at different points in their lives and grow with me. This series was meant to show me grow as a man and it would not be right to do MOTM III and have me talking about driving drunk. I didn't want people to listen and feel like, "Oh he's giving us a lesson," rather than be entertained, but I'm not condoning that sh*T, that's not cool. When I'm singing about driving drunk on "Pursuit of Happiness" on MOTM, you may remember that it was a nightmare. It was meant to be scary, the craziness, the fact that this person chooses to look for happiness in substances; and that's scary, that's a terrible combination, that's a terrible way to go about things."

The Ohio native also promised the project would leave listeners feeling satisfied.
"MOTM III will really be answering the biggest question: Have I found happiness? And it will lead people on in life, because there will not be another MOTM after MOTM III. It will send people off feeling satisfied." (Music Connection)
Back in August, Kid said the follow-up to 2010's Man on the Moon II won't drop until 2015.
Dropping his fourth studio album earlier this year with 'Indicud,' KiD CuDi got straight to work on his next project 'Man On The Moon 3.' Tonight Cudder announced that third installment to his Man On The Moon series will be released sometime in 2015. "motm 3 2015" (The Masked Gorilla)
Earlier this year, Cudi talked about his break-up with G.O.O.D Music and said he made sure to let ex-boss Kanye West know he wanted to maintain a strong relationship.
"I overthink sh-- all the time. I'm just emotional," he added, laughing. Cudi broke the news to fans early in April, saying that he'd even reached out to Jay-Z for advice on how to broach the subject with Kanye, but once it was done with, there were no hard feelings and he and 'Ye still have plans to work together. "In the last email he sent me, he was just like, 'Yo, come out to Paris and work,' but I gotta go shoot 'Need for Speed' first," he continued. "I'ma handle that and hopefully he's still working because I got some time in between so I might jet out and go check him, play him some beats that I been working on. Now that I know he might need my help I might go in the studio and actually try to make some beats with him in mind and see what comes outta that." (MTV)
