KiD CuDi Warns Label for Limited Airplay Push

KiD CuDi is not the happiest man these days. Taking his frustrations to Twitter, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper expressed his discontent with his label over radio airplay. Complaining about his songs not receiving spins despite their millions of views on VEVO, Cudder compared the stats of “Just What I Am” and “King Wizard” to similarly-viewed videos including Trinidad James’s “All Gold Everything.”

“King Wizard 3.4 million views on Vevo, Just What I Am has 4.3 million and my shit is not on regular rotation on radio. Hmmm,” he tweeted. “Trinidad James got 4.1 million views on his hit (rightfully so), and I hear that jam EVERYWHERE. Wheres my fuckin spins???”

This led him to send out an ultimatum to his label, Universal Republic.

“To my label, I swear to all that is fuckin holy in this world, if things dont change soon, theres gonna be some problems”

This also refers to his upcoming offering Indicud.

“I worked too hard on all this shit. Producing, writing, directing AND executing the shit proper. I did my part, I put in work. Wtf,” he said. “Yall kno I cuts no slack. Not w my music. Every song is my life. A piece of my fuckin tormented soul. It matters to me. I give a fuck.”

This is just the latest case of CuDi being unhappy with his label dealings. After the release of 2011’s WZRD, he aired out Universal for only shipping 55,000 physical copies and rushing him through the recording process.
