The recording process for artists can always go in numerous directions and sometimes they realize that they should scrap straying from the original and stay true to what their fans know them for.

This is the case for Kid Cudi as the rapper has decided to change the name of his album, again, and essentially change the whole vibe/sound that was initially planned.

Stating that the next release, expected to drop in August, will have a dark tone, Cudi only felt right in creating a sequel, Man On The Moon II:  The Legend of Mr. Rager.

“I took a step back, went on tour, and realized I’m where at because of the type of songs I write.  Every time I read a comment from someone saying I’ve touched their lives in some way is what made me want to stop f**king around and continue pouring my life into my music.”

So far, Chip Tha Ripper has been slated as a feature on the project and features production from RATATAT and Dot Da Genius.
