As reported by MissInfo, Kid Cudi has announced his departure from Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label. He made the announcement earlier today during an interview with Power 106 LA, and is aiming to make his own way and properly develop his artist King Chip. There have been warning signs leading up to this – Cudi has alluded to it on Twitter, and the official Indicud tracklist lacks features from the G.O.O.D. Music roster.

Here’s the audio from Cudi’s announcement:

Common Says There Will Be No “Cruel Winter” & Confirms Solo LP Producers

common

Certain members of G.O.O.D. Music have been dropping major hints at a Cruel Winter project being in the works. Now one of the most veteran members of the crew, Common, says that fans should not expect a compilation effort anytime soon as everyone, himself included, is too focused on solo projects as Cruel Summer acted as a launching pad for them. In a recent interview with Vulture, Common also talks about his album, and what producers you can expect, and the possibility of seeing a collabo with Chi-town’s Kanye West.

Although Big Sean, and Q-Tip are among the members of G.O.O.D. to say a new collabo album is coming, Common squash’s that saying “nah, nah. I don’t think that’s happening. It was more of a rumor — cats been creating, but everybody’s been doing their solo album. So that’s what that is.”

In regards to projects fans can expect, Rasheed, who previously said his mixtape will be dropping around May, says his studio album will not be released until the fall, “The album will be coming out by probably near the fall, because I’m going back to shoot ‘Hell On Wheels’ in late April.”

After confirming Hit-Boy and Travi$ Scott would be producing on his mixtape, it looks as if they will be part of his studio project as well, “I’m definitely looking at some of the producers like Travi$ Scott, No I.D., 88-Keys, Hit-Boy. This has been the first time I’m open to working and not having just one, two producers and that’s it.”

As far as the G.O.O.D. Music honcho being involved, the Chicago rapper says he will reach out to Kanye, “want him to. I definitely would love him to.”
