Kid Cudi fans might not receive any more music from the “Man on the Moon.” While visiting Apple Music’s The Zane Lowe Show to promote his Netflix film Entergalactic, the rapper said he was considering putting music “on the back burner” and “closing the chapter on Kid Cudi.”
“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.”
He added, “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, whose real name is Scott Mescudi, held his first Moon Man’s Landing music festival in his hometown of Cleveland earlier this month. Now with his first animated film underway, the artist is on to other non-music pursuits.
“I’ve said a lot and I have other desires, I have other things I want to do,” he continued. “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.
Now available on Netflix, Entergalactic co-stars Jessica Williams, Ty Dolla $ign, Vanessa Hudgens, Laura Harrier and more.
