Kid Cudi To Record Label: There’s Going To Be Some Problems If Radio Don’t Play My Ish

Kid Cudi let off some steam on Twitter Tuesday night, slamming his record label for not getting his work on the radio. The rapper, born Scott Mescudi, noticed that two of his songs, “King Wizard” and “Just What I Am,” had roughly the same amount of video views as Trinidad James’ “All Gold Everything.” The James track is a radio standard, while Cudi’s songs apparently aren’t in rotation all that often.

The tweets — which include some colorful language — are available below. Cudi’s comparison is perhaps only semi-valid. James was an unknown artist before “All Gold Everything” lit up blogs and subsequently the radio, so it’s more notable that he was able to drum up the same number of video views as a relatively well-known act like Cudi. Also, the James single is perfect for the radio: lyrically and sonically unchallenging with a hook that’s much more jingle than poem.

    He have every right to be mad but so does other unplayed and irrelevant artists….join the bunch. What he doing or who he doing so special to where he needs to be a priority to his label…I dont see him selling out arenas. some of these people let a few months of hype go to their head. SMH…..he a one hit wonder in my eyes.
