After a long hiatus that lasted for over two years, Kid Cudi – real name Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi – has been releasing new music, an adult animated music television special and well, another LP. The iconic Cleveland-bred Day ‘N’ Nite emcee and lyricist Cudi released his eighth studio album ‘ENTERGALACTIC’ on September 30th, 2022. Released alongside its visual adaptation into a Netflix animated special, the 15-track record featured guest appearances by 2 Chainz, Ty Dolla $ign, Don Toliver, Steve Aoki and more.
However, ever since then, Cudi has been hinting at his upcoming new album. While the ‘Do What I Want’ rapper has spoken at length about retiring from music, he has assured the Hip-Hop world that Entergalactic won’t be his last musical endeavour.
Cudi performed at the iconic Zénith Paris – La Villette in France last night and teased a new piece of music with Playboi Carti.
“Since 2020, I have been recording a new album. When I dropped Man on the Moon III, I hit the studio and was just f***** around with some vibes, gettin’ into the groove and I don’t know when I’m gonna release my next album, I really don’t. But I do know what’s gonna happen and before then, I wanna kind of just give you guys some s***. Release some songs, get the vibes out there you know. and this is one song I have been sitting on for a while. It features my brother Playboi Carti,” Cudi said amidst his live set.
The legendary rapper then went on to play the unreleased single during his live set. Cudi has been teasing the highly anticipated collaborative effort with Playboi Carti for a long time now. As per many, the record will be titled ‘Solo Dolo Pt. 4’ serving as the follow-up to Kid Cudi’s ‘Solo Dolo III’ on Man On the Moon III: The Chosen. Check out the live preview below.
