This is what the industry today does to people, especially those who have been making their ascent during such troubled times, it can dampen a person’s spirit and leave a sour taste in their mouths, prime example Kid Cudi. The Cleveland native who is def making noise with his Day n Nite joint which is from the impending debut Man on the Moon: The Guardians, which will be released through Universal/G.O.O.D music is already talking getting out of the game before his album is even on shelves.
His blog featured an entry saying “I am falling back on being an artist. The drama that comes with it is more overwhelming than the shit I was dealing with when I was piss poor broke.” However it is highly unlikely that he will be able to pull out of producing solo albums as he signed more than a one album deal with Kanye’s label. Longevity just isn’t a word taken seriously anymore it appears. Kanye needs to have a word.
