Kid Cudi Announces He's 'Doing One More Album' For His Day-One Fans

Kid Cudi has announced he’ll be releasing at least one more album before closing the curtain on his music career.

The Cleveland rapper took to Twitter on Sunday (November 6) to reveal he has one more album left on his current deal with Republic Records. The project is set to include all-new music for his day-one fans, but won’t arrive until 2024 at the earliest.

“Im doin 1 more album and then im done w my deal and not sure what ima do after that but yea, 1 more,” he wrote. “Wont be next year. Keep u posted. This is for all my fans that have been ridin w me for so long. This will be all new music. The songs ive teased ill prolly put out as singles here and there to hold u over.”

Kid Cudi previously hinted at retiring from music while speaking to Apple Music’s Zane Lowe in September, suggesting the recently-released Entergalactic would be his final album.

“The Kid Cudi stuff, I think I want to put it on the back burner and chill out with that,” he said. “I think, I want to be done with it. I think, closing the chapter on Kid Cudi. The goal for Entergalactic, I was bored of making albums. Just, doing an album, two music videos and that’s it. And I was like, ‘Man, I went into this wanting to do something epic and different.’ And now, that I’ve done that, I just… I’ve made a lot of music, man.”

Cudi — a prolific actor/producer and budding fashion designer — went on to explain he wants to explore other creative paths and spend more time with his 12-year-old daughter, Vada.

“I’ve said a lot and I have other desires, I have other things I want to do,” he said. “And I do not see me never making music. I’ll always fuck around in the studio, or make something here and there. But, as far as getting in the studio and working on an album, and then going and touring it, I just don’t have it in me. I don’t have the desire.”

He continued: “I have so many other things I want to invest my time into… I really want to spend more time with my daughter. You know what I’m saying? We’ve been kicking it a lot lately and I’ve been having more time and it’s good. She’s growing up, our relationship is super tight. It’s what I always dreamed of.”

During his recent appearance on Hot Ones, Kid Cudi also talked about the possibility of switching up his career completely and becoming a kindergarten teacher.

“I just don’t know if I wanna just do music, drop albums for too much longer,” he said. “I’m kinda nearing the end on all things Kid Cudi, I think. I’m really curious to see what else I can do. I was thinking about this, and this was like a wacky idea I had years ago, but it would be cool to one day be a kindergarten teacher.”

He added: “Just do that for a couple of years when I’m like 50. Just like, for 10 years I was a kindergarten teacher, you know? And I just infect the youth with that freshness, like get ’em young. And then those kids would just sprinkle the freshness to the world, and I’ll just be like, ‘Yes! Yes!’”
