Rather than getting the album on January 30, we will now just be getting two tracks on iTunes. Dot Da Genius took to his Twitter to reveal his collaborative Rock album with CuDi will now drop on February 28. Hey Guys, WZRD Update. Me and Cudi have been working on our debut album and it’s almost near completion. We are in the final stages of mastering but we really had to take time and pay attention to the sonics as this is new territory for us. With that being said, we have decided to change the release date. We are looking roughly at Feb 28th. Y’all know how Cudi is’ and I’m the same way. Everything has to be in place and now it is. I know it’s late notice, we were trying to keep the date but got wrapped up making this album perfect for y’all. However for making you guys wait a little longer we will release ‘Brake‘ & ‘Teleport 2 Me‘ on iTunes on the previously said date. AS WELL AS ‘DOSE OF DOPENESS’. Hopefully that will hold you guys over until the album drops!

They are revealing.” The journals detail his thoughts and feelings, the people he met, his plans, his family, his children, his past and his future.
