Kid Cudi has had a tumultuous relationship with the entertainment industry, but when it comes to making music, he couldn't be more focused. As he preps the release of his third album, Indicud, the rapper has revealed that he will add members of the G.O.O.D. Music roster plus a host of other big names, including Kendrick Lamar. “Features thus far, Kanye, Pusha, Jaden, Kendrick Lemar, Chip, Cage, got something for Hov I wanna play him, still gotta link w 50 and Banks,” Kudi tweeted Tuesday (July 10). He also plans to continue to step outside the Hip-Hop box sonically. “Hopefully getting in the studio soon w Ratatat, Diplo, and I gotta reach out to MGMT as well,” he added.
The Ohio native's last release, WZRD with Dot Da Genius, dropped earlier in the year, but failed to find huge commercial success. The collaborative effort debuted in the No. 3 spot on the Billboard 200 album charts selling 66,000 copies in its first week, then dropped to No. 9 in its second week, pushing an additional 16,000 units.
Cudi previously likened his forthcoming double-disc album to Dr. Dre's The Chronic 2001, and has plans to drop the project this fall, after filming two movies, one of which wraps up in September.
