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.
