Kid Cudi Lashes Out At “Weak Ass Label,” AKA Universal Republic

    Kid Cudi and Dot Da Genius released their new self-titled “rock” album, WZRD, today and you would think it finally coming out would leave Cudder in high spirits. No pun. And even though he says he’s not “mad,” he seemed pretty pissed off in his Twitter rant this afternoon about his “weak ass label.” That label, in case you’re wondering, is Universal Republic and they apparently only shipped out 55,000 copies of the WZRD album. They’re also not pushing the record’s lead single, “Teleport 2 Me, Jamie.” Hmm…I wonder why. Peep his rant below. [RR]

    Ok so just a heads up, my weak ass label only shipped 55k physicals cuz they treated this like some indie side project tax right off. So i apologize on behalf of my weak ass major label. And I apologize for the lack of promo, again, my weak ass major label. They tried to rush me thru this so i can just give em another MOTM, but guess what? Fuck that, next album is WZRD. MOTM3 on hold til 2014.

    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 ass label never even gave us a copy of our own album. FAIL!!!  Im lettin Universal Republic have it, fuck it. What they gon’ do, spank me?? hahahaha

    AND Teleport 2 Me, Jamie aint on the radio!!!! like helloooooooooo????? HIT HIT HIT!!!
