Published Feb 28, 2011Looking for a fresh start, rapper Kid Cudi has announced that he's dissolved his imprint Dream On. The label was founded in 2009 by Cudi and business partners Patrick "Plain Pat" Reynolds and producer Emile Haynie but has now folded.
"Dream On is over," Cudi posted on his Twitter this Saturday (February 26). "Pat and Emile are doing their own thing, i wish them well. I have a diff vision, for music, for the world."
The label, which released the hip-hopper's first two albums, 2009's Man on the Moon: The End of Day and last year's Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager was distributed through Universal/Motown and Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music. Despite the downfall of Dream On, Cudi will remain in the distribution partnership. He hasn't, however, announced the name of his next vanity imprint.
"iam still with GOOD music, with that being said im just changin my side of things up a bit," he wrote, adding, "still distributed through Motown. im just doing the right thing, i come from a different place. people lose sight of the mission. cant expect everyone to be built like me."
While the split from former partners Reynolds and Haynie could be seen negatively, Cudi is looking forward to the future.
"when people have different visions, you gotta go your own way," he said. "this is a day to rejoice, this isnt bad news. things are gonna be so epic, im like a kid on xmas eve im so excited bout this new chapter."
While no official details have been released about his upcoming album schedule, we're hoping he's set to release his rock-flavoured Wizard project pretty soon.
