In some news that I definitely didn’t see coming, Kid Cudi announced today on LA’s Power 106 and that he is no longer part of the G.O.O.D. Music family. He says there isn’t any beef between himself and Kanye West or anybody else on the label, but that he was ready to move his career in a different direction. He says that he knew about six months ago that he was going to leave the label, which may explain why he barely featured on their compilation album Cruel Summer.

About a week ago, we told you about the possibility of a Cruel Winter album, from an interview with Pusha T., where he said he didn’t know much a bout the project calling it a Kanye West – Q. Tip thing. Well Mr. West is back at it releasing a trailer for the project, while it doesn’t specifically say that is a preview to the album, one would assume it was the follow-up to the G.O.O.D. Music Cruel Summer album.
Last month Kanye West‘s G.O.O.D. Music released their anticipated Kanye West Presents: Cruel Summer album to mixed reviews. Well apparently the label could already be working on the follow up, Cruel Winter.
Kid Cudi just announced to the world that his upcoming Indicud “will be the greatest album ever made.” Though the album has yet to receive an official release date, it is considered one of the more anticipated albums of the fall.
With features that include Kanye West, Pusha T, and Kendrick Lamar, it’s easy to see how it made Complex Magazine’s top five most-anticipated albums for fall 2012.
mark my words, INDICUD will be the greatest album ever made.Know that I’m not lying.

Via Complex Magazine:
After a crossover into rock, Cudi’s back doing what he does best. We got our first taste of his next album with “Just What I Am,” his awesome solo effort on Cruel Summer, “Creepers,” showed that he’s still making incredible tracks.
I know Jean should really be excited about this as he might be the biggest Cudi fan I know. While this bold statement should make Cudi fans happy, I am just hoping he got back on drugs — because that Kid Cudi, is fire.
I’m not too sure why he’d come out and put that type goal on this album, because, you know, these types of predictions almost never work out. But hey, you do your thing Cudi and we’ll be sure to cop that once it drops.

This Tuesday is the day when Kanye West Presents Good Music Cruel Summer is finally released, up until a few weeks ago when the tracklist hit the net a few weeks ago. The album actually leaked a few days ago, but the team released a promo video for the new album. The video also features the tracklist of the album which features Kanye West, Big Sean, Kid Cudi, Pusha T., John Legend, and the whole G.O.O.D. Music family.
