Kid Cudi "Indicud" Release Date, Cover Art & Tracklist
UPDATE #2: Kid Cudi moves "Indicud" forward one week, both in CDs and the digital release.
Cudi recently spoke to Billboard about his impending album, due out this April 23. He revealed that he brought in heavy hitters like Too $hort, RZA, A$AP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar, Hit-Boy and even indie rock group Haim for appearances on the anticipated effort.
"I’ve done a lot of collabs with people that, on paper, people are going to be like, 'Oh shit!' It’s already been put out there that I did a song with Too Short," he said. "I can wait for people to hear that. That’s one of those jams that you wouldn’t expect and it’s exactly what you expect of Kid Cudi. There’s a lot of energy. It’s one of my favorites. RZA for sure is on there. Too Short and Kendrick Lamar is on there. I got a session with A$AP [Rocky] tonight. So we’ll see what happens. We’ve been working the last couple of days. I got this group called Haim...they’re so dope. We were able to do a jam with something me and Hit-Boy did. It’s a song that we’ve been trying to make happen for, like, two years now. I had the idea to get the girls on it and we reworked the beat a little bit. That will definitely be on there."
