With his new collaborative album out today, all isn’t sitting well with Kid Cudi. Mr. Rager hit Twitter this afternoon to fire back at his label for undershipping the new WZRD album. As “payback,” Cudi says we won’t see his upcoming third solo album, Man On The Moon 3 until 2014. Don’t worry folks, according to Cudi we’ll get a second WZRD project from him and producer Dot Da Genius.

Ok so just a heads up, my weak ass label only shipped 55k physicals cuz they treated this like some indie side project tax right off. So i apologize on behalf of my weak ass major label. And I apologize for the lack of promo, again, my weak ass major label. They tried to rush me thru this so i can just give em another MOTM, but guess what? Fuck that, next album is WZRD. MOTM3 on hold til 2014. who mad??? not me and @DotDaGenius. So its def gonna be tough to find one in the stores guys, I’m sorry about that. I gotta go out and find one too, becuz my weak ass label never even gave us a copy of our own album. FAIL!!! Im lettin Universal Republic have it, fuck it. What they gon’ do, spank me?? hahahaha. AND Teleport 2 Me, Jamie aint on the radio!!!! like helloooooooooo????? HIT HIT HIT!!!
