Kid Cudi isn’t going anywhere… Just yet

Although the rapper still plans to retire, he'll be releasing one more album of "all new music."

Kid Cudi has promised his fans one final album of “all new music” before he goes through with his plan to retire from music entirely.

The rapper made headlines last month after announcing that he’s “nearing the end” of his music career. He jokingly added that he’s thinking about becoming a kindergarten teacher instead during an appearance on Hot Ones

The Cleveland native felt he was “kinda nearing the end on all things Kudi” and quoted other rappers, including Snoop Dogg, Eminem and Jay Z, believing that he wouldn’t have the same longevity as those artists. “I feel like, I don’t have what they have,” Cudi said. “I just don’t know if I want to do music and drop albums for much longer.”

In a new set of tweets, the 38-year-old confirmed one last album is in the works and that he will “keep [fans] posted” on its progress but not to expect it to drop in 2023. “I’m doin 1 more album and then im done w my deal and not sure what ima do after that but yea, 1 more [sic],” he wrote. “Won’t be next year. Keep u posted [sic].”

In a second tweet, the artist added: “This is for all my fans that have been ridin w me for so long. This will be all new music. The songs ive teased ill prolly put out as singles here and there to hold u over [sic].”

 

Earlier this year, Cudi released his most recent album, Entergalactic, a project released alongside the musician’s accompanying Netflix film of the same name. Cudi’s last album before that was 2020’s Man On The Moon III: The Chosen, the third instalment in the musician’s MOTM trilogy.
