Kid Cudi Says He's Starting A Rock Group Called Wizard

As evidenced by his performance on Letterman last night, Kid Cudi is getting pretty serious about this rock stuff. So serious, in fact, that he's promising to quit rapping when he's done with the Man on the Moon II promotional cycle, and instead focus on a rock side project. 

I don't get any fulfillment out of it anymore. I don't get fulfillment out of writing a 16. That's why you don't ever hear me on Kanye joints like that. For two reasons: he's dope and 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. 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.

Wizard has to be a name that has already been used, right? But at any rate, Cudi singing isn't that much of a stretch--his rapping voice is a little more flowing than most rappers, and being that he inspired Kanye to sing, it sort of makes sense. [NY Mag]

cudi stick to rappin man. your lyrics are great and you are my idol. your music sets a tone to the room that you are aiming for. but at the same time everyone wants to sing and rap along.


Please don't pull a Lil Wayne.


Oh man. this sounds so different. Thing is, I kinda got a little suspicious by the song "erase me" in man on the moon II, with kanye west. It sounded like a whole new genre.

Mr. Solo dolo/rager; PLEASE don't stop rapping =( your amazing at what you do. Give the rock a shot, but don't stop rap completely! All your fans are behind you, brother! =( You and eminem are my music idols!
