Kid Cudi fans probably noticed that the rapper’s Twitter page mysteriously disappeared shortly before his album release. Mr. Solo Dolo shed some light on what may have led to the deletion.
Cudi’s desire for more privacy contributed to the dismantling of his Twitter account and blog. “I always have strange numbers calling my phone, and e-mails too,” he tells Rap-Up.com. “My last e-mail got hacked. However, I hate the fact that you can have on one device about eight different ways for someone to contact you. If you think about it, it’s kinda creepy.”
“I have an iPhone and I don’t even utilize all of the applications on it. Just alone on an iPhone you can have multiple e-mails—I have two e-mails—text messaging, some people have AIM on there, MySpace, Facebook—and I don’t even have those things.”
All the technology was getting too much for the “Day ‘N’ Nite” hitmaker. “With Twitter, my two e-mails, text messaging, and my phone ringing, that’s just overwhelming. And you gotta think of it like this, what did they do before there were cell phones? Use a pay phone or write a letter. Or you catch ’em at the crib.”
The 25-year-old MC wants to go back to the old-school days when it was harder to reach people. “I think I want to take it back to that. Sometimes it just shouldn’t be that easy for you to get in contact with me.”
