Kid Cudi began to build anticipation for his WZRD album with producer Dot Da Genius back in November by announcing a January 30 release date (which coincides with his 28th birthday) and releasing the first single “Brake.” He followed up with a preview of “Teleport 2 Me” in December but, realistically speaking, even an album from a rapper-turned-rocker must be delayed at least once. On Monday night (January 16), Dot Da Genius took to Twitter to announce that the album’s release would be pushed back until February.
“Hey Guys, WZRD Update. Me and Cudi have been working on our debut album and it’s almost near completion. We are in the final stages of mastering, but we really had to take time and pay attention to the sonics as this is new territory for us,” he wrote, via his account, @dotdagenius. “With that being said, we have decided to change the release date. We are looking roughly at Feb 28th. Y’all know how Cudi is’ and I’m the same way. Everything has to be in place and now it is. I know it’s late notice, we were trying to keep the date but got wrapped up making this album perfect for y’all. However for making you guys wait a little longer we will release ’Brake’ & ’Teleport 2 Me’ on iTunes on the previously said date. AS WELL AS ’DOSE OF DOPENESS.’ Hopefully that will hold you guys over until the album drops!”
Cudi left all the official talk to Dot, chiming in to add, this, “My whole career Ive had 2 prove people wrong, WZRD will be no different. This album will finally make people believers, WE CAN DO ANYTHING.” Other exciting news in Cudi’s life? He also got a new Pink Floyd tattoo on his hand.
