Kid Cudi is not a happy camper. The G.O.O.D. Music rapper is airing out his frustrations with his label once again, this time over radio airplay.
Cudi took to Twitter to vent about his songs not receiving spins despite their millions of views on VEVO. He compared the stats of “Just What I Am” and “King Wizard” to similarly-viewed videos including Trinidad James’ “All Gold Everything.”
“King Wizard 3.4 million views on Vevo, Just What I Am has 4.3 million and my shit is not on regular rotation on radio. Hmmm,” he tweeted. “Trinidad James got 4.1 million views on his hit (rightfully so), and I hear that jam EVERYWHERE. Wheres my fuckin spins???”
He delivered an ultimatum to his label, Universal Republic. “To my label, I swear to all that is fuckin holy in this world, if things dont change soon, theres gonna be some problems,” warned Cudi.
He has been in the studio working on his new album Indicud. “I worked too hard on all this shit. Producing, writing, directing AND executing the shit proper. I did my part, I put in work. Wtf,” he said. “Yall kno I cuts no slack. Not w my music. Every song is my life. A piece of my fuckin tormented soul. It matters to me. I give a fuck.”
This is not the first time he has spoken out against his label. Following the release of last year’s WZRD, he blamed Universal for only shipping 55,000 physical copies and rushing him through the recording process.
