Kid Cudi recently announced via social media that he is planning to release one more album before his record deal with Republic Records ends, adding to rumors that he will retire from music and pursue other creative endeavors.
The album, which is likely to come out in 2024, will feature songs previously teased by Cudi.
“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.”
In a subsequent tweet, Cudi added, “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.”
Cudi had said during his appearance on “Hot Ones” last month that he feels like his career as a rap artist is “nearing the end.”
“I just don’t know if I wanna just do music, drop albums for too much longer,” he said in the interview. “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!’”
