KiD CuDi Announces New Record Label & New Band Name

KiD CuDi recently announced his new ventures this past Thursday.

During a show at New York’s Roseland Ballroom, the G.O.O.D. Music artist revealed that his own label will be called Wicked Awesome Records.

In addition to news of his label, CuDi also announced a name change of his rock band. The band which previously went by the name Wizard, will now carry the name 2 Be Continuum.

The rapper/rocker spoke with MTV News back in October about his rock star lifestyle aspirations saying, “I just really get more fulfillment out of singing now,” he said. “I’m teaching myself the guitar, that’s my new found love. I never thought that I could play an instrument. Picked it up, surprised myself. It’s been two and a half months, I’m already starting my next project. It’s a rock album, I’m doing a band with [producer] Dot [da Genius] called Wizard.”

CuDi continued to talk about his waning love for rapping.

“I’m just over rapping. I don’t get any fulfillment out of it anymore,” he said. “That’s why you don’t ever hear me on Kanye joints like that… I’m just not gonna be rapping on ‘Ye records and getting bodied all the time. I’m more passionate when he’s like, ‘yo Cudi, come up with a hook.’ Cause he asks me to put verses down but I’ll try to procrastinate or disappear or something. I just really get more fulfillment out of singing now. I’m teaching myself the guitar, that’s my new found love.”

It’s ok CuDi, getting out rapped by Kanye West, Common and Pusha T on records would make the best rappers turn singers.

On the other hand, some people will argue that CuDi wasn’t doing much rapping to begin with, but we won’t take it there.

Cudder is reportedly working on his next album, tentatively title Wizard.
