Artwork Delays Kid Cudi Album

Kid Cudi

Kid Cudi will have to wait a little longer to take his first step on the Moon.

The “Day ‘N’ Nite” rapper’s debut album Man on the Moon: The End of Day has been pushed back three weeks from August 25 to September 15, Universal Motown has confirmed to Rap-Up.com. The delay means the project will miss the August 31 cutoff for the 2010 Grammy Awards and will now compete with Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3, which is scheduled for a September 11 release.

Cudi expressed his frustration on Twitter Thursday night. “Pissed. I dont make this years grammy deadline now, jan 2011 no one will care enough for me to win one n jays album drops days before mine. Great.”

The Ohio native blamed the album packaging for the delay. “The artwork wasnt done in time for digital, due date is 2moro and nothings even close to bein done as far as the illustrations.”

    The Grammys should EXTEND THE CUTOFF DATE to December 17 AT LEAST so the best albums of the year can be nominated!

    If that means pushing the awards back to March, then SO BE IT! I take quality over quantity anyway.

  17. really...

    Did he really think he was gonna win a grammy? Dude is not that good at all. He has one hit track thanks to other artists (A-trak & Crookers) Without the club remix by Crookers 1/2 of the country wouldn’t even know who this guy is.

    fuck that, 50 cent has never won a grammy what makes you think he’s gunna win one now? he’s no where near his best. jay-z is the only one stopping cudi getting a grammy at this moment in time, unless kanye brings out an album obviously.
