After Pitchfork made changes to several of its album ratings on Tuesday, Kid Cudi took to Twitter to respond to a fan who claimed his debut album, Man on the Moon: The End of Day, should have received a higher score from the outlet.

“Pitchfork has never givin me good ratings, and here we are, years later and im still here,” Kid Cudi wrote. “Its ok man. They dont need to change it. The entire world knows, even my haters, that this album was the one that changed Hip Hop forever.”

In response to a fan asking if album reviews had ever bothered him, Cudi responded, “I think when I was younger I thought it would hurt my career. Like the fans would listen to the reviews and not give the music a chance. Then, I realized over the years after I survived each era and made album after album, that nothing anyone could ever say would stop my light.”

Cudi’s Man on the Moon: The End of Day, which was released in 2009, received a 4.1 out of 10 from the outlet. Pitchfork did not alter the scores for any of Kid Cudi’s works, though the outlet did change Chief Keef‘s 2012 record Back from the Dead from 7.9 to 9.1 and Big Boi‘s 2010 effort Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty from 9.2 to 7.7, among several others.

Late last month, the rapper confirmed plans to tour in support of his Man on the Moon III: The Chosen album on Twitter, stating that he has “been bookin venues for months.”
