Kid Cudi Talks 'Indicud' Details, Promises Guest Spots from RZA, Kendrick Lamar and Too Short
Published Mar 07, 2013Earlier this year, G.O.O.D. Music crooner Kid Cudi promised that his long-awaited Indicud album would finally see a release on April 23, but the details surrounding the set are still relatively vague. Now, he's offered some more details from the record.
Though he had originally hoped to get Jay-Z, Diplo, 50 Cent and Ratatat in on the action, he doesn't confirm or deny their appearances on the record during a new Billboard interview. He does promise, however, that the album will include guest slots from RZA, Too Short, Kendrick Lamar and, most likely, A$AP Rocky.
There's also an appearance from all-female indie group Haim. "They're so dope," Cudi said of the group. "We were able to do a jam with something me and Hit-Boy did. It's a song that we've been trying to make happen for, like, two years now."
If you think it's all about other people, however, think again, as Cudi's extreme self-confidence crops up a lot in the interview. Producing much of the music himself for the first time, he didn't seem to have a moment of self-doubt.
"Working on this album made me realize that I just have a knack for creating music," he said. "It's a gift. And there's no denying it. 'Just What I Am' took me all of 10 minutes to make. 'Immortal' maybe took 30 minutes. It's not hard for me."
