Looks like the Ohio rapper has really impressed the President of Universal Motown, Sylvia Rhone, securing himself a home at the label which will not only see him put out his Man on the Moon: The Guardian project this Summer but will also distribute the rappers own label Dream On.
Those folks over at Universal/Motown must be excited to have some fresh meat on the roster as this is what Sylvia Rhone had to say in a statement “He crosses musical boundaries with an appeal that goes beyond genre, format, race, language, and culture. Cudi lives easily in the Hip-Hop, indie rock, pop, and R&B worlds – a diversity that shows in his innovative music and his all-embracing persona. He is a born storyteller who brings a positive, life-affirming message to his brilliant lyrical flow and compelling music. There are no clichés in what Cudi does. He is a breath of fresh air – a dynamic and important new voice, not only in the next phase of Hip-Hop, but as a groundbreaking trendsetter who represents the future. I am thrilled to welcome Kid Cudi into the Universal Motown family.”
Wow, let’s hope he fulfills all those expectations and forgets altogether about his random mumblings of retiring.
