We knew Kid Cudi had some rage issues — his nickname is Mr. Rager, after all — but someone really needs to give him a massage or a hug or something. Coinciding with the release of his new collaborative album with Dot Da Genius, WZRD, the rapper — who blew a gasket at the crowd at his album listening party — showed off his new, incredibly morbid tattoo of two slit wrists. “New Tat The old Scott is dead…slit wrists,” tweeted Cudder. You’d think that WZRD being #1 on iTunes would give him something to be smile about, but Cudi is spending the day furiously blasting his record label for not shipping out enough physical copies of his CD.
“My weak ass label only shipped 55k physicals cuz they treated this like some indie side project tax right off,” tweeted Cudi. “So i apologize on behalf of my weak ass major label. And I apologize for the lack of promo, again, my weak ass major label. They tried to rush me thru this so i can just give em another MOTM, but guess what? Fuck that, next album is WZRD. MOTM3 on hold til 2014.”
He continues: “Who mad??? not me and @DotDaGenius : ) So its def gonna be tough to find one in the stores guys, I’m sorry about that. I gotta go out and find one too, becuz my weak ass label never even gave us a copy of our own album. FAIL!!! Im lettin Universal Republic have it, fuck it. What they gon’ do, spank me?? hahahaha.”
Considering musica fans’ purchasing behavior these days, we don’t think Cudi has much to worry about. When is the last time you actually headed out to a record store to buy an album on opening day?
