Kid Cudi claims he’ll be quitting music to pursue a career in acting after recording “four, five albums.” Below is an excerpt from an interview with Cudi by the writers over at the New York Times Vulture Blog from the premier of his new HBO series How to Make It in America (check out the premier on youtube here:
Kid Cudi’s first acting gig is for the new HBO series How to Make It in America. When we caught up with him last night at a screening for the show, we wondered if he’ll ever give up music for acting. “I’m trying to evenly balance them out right now, but eventually I want to leave behind music and just do acting,” he said. “I only got into the music business to tell my story and inspire some people. I think four albums will do it, and when I’m done with my four, five albums, I’ll switch it up. Once the story is told [musically], there’s nothing else to say.” See more from the screening in our Party Lines slideshow.
