Since 2004, hip-hop artist Kid Cudi has sold over 1.19 million units of music.
Both of the Day N' Night singer's past LPs sold 100,000+ units in the first week. So, yesterday when Cudi's label, Universal Republic, only shipped out 55k of his new (slightly random) rock album, "WZRD's," he got super pissed. Like, that is totes not enough physical copies of the album!
In his moment of furry, Kid did what any self respecting rapper would do: he bitched on twitter.
"Ok so just a heads up, my weak ass label only shipped 55k physicals cuz they treated this like some indie side project tax right off [sic]."
"So i apologize on behalf of my weak ass major label. And I apologize for the lack of promo, again, my weak ass major label."
Well, if his album sales are as dynamic and creative as his tweets, we understand Universal Republic's decision. LOL!
