Kid Cudi Goes On Twitter Rant, Wonders Why His Music Doesn’t Get Enough Radio Spins [PHOTOS]


Kid Cudi has a huge question for the radio world: why isn’t he getting any spins? As is the way of the game these days, Cudi aired out his feelings via Twitter earlier today, and from the looks of it, he really wants to be more popular on the radio.

With his Indicud album due to drop in March, the Ohio native can’t comprehend why his digital hits haven’t turned him into a radio success, like that of Trinidad James. “‘King Wizard’ 3.4 million views on Vevo, ‘Just What I Am’ has 4.3 million and my sh-t is not on regular rotation on radio. Hmmm,” he started.”Trinidad James got 4.1 million views on his hit (rightfully so), and I hear that jam EVERYWHERE. Wheres my f-ckin spins???”

Unfortunately, no one was around to answer his burning questions. But rather than get too deep in a Twitter rant, Cudi ended things in the words of America’s viral sensation, Sweet Brown: “Ain’t nobody got time for that!”

On the flip side, given the emergence of competitors like Spotify, and Pandora, do radio spins even matter like they used to?

    I could tell him why. It’s bc disk jockeys these days play what they want. To get spins, the d.j. has to either like your song personally or you have to have features from already established artists like Kanye West or Lil Wayne. That’s not how it should be, but that’s the way it is.
