G.O.O.D. Music rapper Kid Cudi has announced plans to drop a new album, WZRD, which will be radio-friendly by not containing any profanity.
Along with the lack of curse words, Cudi’s new LP will refrain from the N-word.
“News update! Me and @DotDaGenius are no longer called 2 Be Continuum. The world will call us W Z R D, which is short for WIZARD,” he tweeted November 18th.
“The title of the album is still undetermined…”
“And heres the biggest news, the official release date will be January 30, my birthday.”
“Had to push it back to get the proper time to mix and master, want it to sonically be where it needs to be. For your smoke sesh enjoyment!”
“Were gonna release a snippet of the first single soon. You will be pleased. Ladies, your gonna have something to shake those booties to.”
“Also, the WZRD album does not contain any profanity or the usage of the word “n*gga”. A universal album for everyone.”
“Haha man some of yall really upset theres no profanity?? You know songs can be written with out them right?”
“Some of yall listen to so much ignorant shit that thats all you know or are accustomed to. My fans are smart, I know yall better then this.” (Kid Cudi’s Twitter)
Around spring, Cudi announced the launch of his new record label and provided an update on Wizard.
Just last night in New York City, Cudi announced the name of his new imprint, Wicked Awesome Records. Along with the new label, he broke the news that he had formed a new band called, 2 Be Continuum, formerly known as Wizard. “I needed something more original, something different, but it’s still wizardry at its finest.” Cudi also gave insight on his upcoming album where he told the jam-packed Roseland Ballroom crowd, “I’ve only been playing guitar for 9 months but the records are epic, epic, I’m really excited. We gunna have that first single for you soon.” Wizard is slated for release later this year. (Complex)
