Despite a #1 album, on iTunes, Kid Cudi is not happy with his record label. Mr. Rager took to Twitter to lambaste his label for what he feel was suspect promotion of his WZRD album, with Dot Da Genius, which was just released yesterday.
“Ok so just a heads up, my weak @ss label only shipped 55k physicals cuz they treated this like some indie side project tax right off,” tweeted Cudi. “So i apologize on behalf of my weak @ss major label. And I apologize for the lack of promo, again, my weak @ss major label.”
Besides subscribing to the Wale school of undershipment thought, Cudi feels that his label, Universal Republic, rushed him to complete WZRD so he could hurry up and drop another record in his Man On The Moon series.
“They tried to rush me thru this so i can just give em another MOTM, but guess what? Fawk that, next album is WZRD. MOTM3 on hold til 2014…,” Cudi continued. “who mad??? not me and @DotDaGenius : ) So its def gonna be tough to find one in the stores guys, I’m sorry about that. I gotta go out and find one too, becuz my weak @ss label never even gave us a copy of our own album. FAIL!!! Im lettin Universal Republic have it, Fawk it. What they gon’ do, spank me?? hahahaha.”
Cursing out your record label rarely ends well, and worth noting is Cudi’s on again, off again relationship with Twitter. Sometimes it’s best to just log off.
