G.O.O.D. Music affiliate Kid Cudi is getting ready to help everyone fine-tune their Netflix and chill goals. The hip-hop veteran has announced plans to launch a new album and show on the streaming giant.
On Monday, Cudder and Netflix formally revealed their huge entertainment rollout.
Kenya Barris and Kid Cudi will be bringing the rapper’s upcoming album Entergalactic to life in a new “adult animated” Netflix series, the streaming service announced on Monday. The series will showcase songs from the forthcoming record, and will “follow a young man on his journey to discover love.” A release date has not been set for either the television show or the album.

Cudi, whose real name is Scott Mescudi, will star in, write and executive produce the series with Ian Edelman also writing and executive producing.

A few days ago, Cudi announced he’s set to star in an upcoming HBO series.
Over the past three years, Cudi has released two studio efforts.
Entergalatic is Cudi’s first solo album since 2016’s Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’. (It’s also the name of a song on his 2009 album Man on the Moon: The End of Day.) The record, to be released on Republic, does not yet have a release date. Last year, Cudi teamed up with Kanye for their joint album Kids See Ghosts with Kanye West. (Pitchfork)
