After a long drought, Kid Cudi finally leaked a new track titled “Capcom” off his rumored upcoming mixtape A Man Named Scott. The song comes directly after Cudi announced via Tumblr that he quit smoking weed. This is what Cudi had to say:
I dont smoke weed anymore. Ill leave it to the kids. Im 27 with a business to run and i need to be alert and focused with my mind strong. For those who still get it on, smoke one in my memory as your favorite lonely stoner.
This is not a joke. I know most of you wanna see me all drugged out and fucked up and i know misery loves company, but im sorry those days are over. I had a good run, Amsterdam and all. Im happy being sober. Im happy being a new me. Giva fuck who thinks of me different, you didnt care about me in the first place if you cant be proud and happy for me for growing and starting a new chapter. Im not your puppet or your tap dancing drug addict here to be your miserable muse, i always made music for me to help myself find understanding. I have finally learned from the words in my songs. I love who loves me and who really cares about me.
Learn from this, theres always light at the end of the tunnel. Hell does have an exit, and i found it. For those who are looking for a way out, i left the door open, and ill be waiting for whoever wants to grow with me. Peace and Love, Cudi
Does this spell the end to Cudi’s music career? As one of my top three favorite artists out there today, I sure hope not. Alcohol and drugs seemed to influence nearly all of his music. Also, Cudi has tried to retire before, but eventually un-retired so his drive to make music is already questionable in my book. Nonetheless, it will be interesting to see how sober Cudi makes music from now on.
