Kid Cudi is having one of those bittersweet days. He's happy his band WZRD released their debut album today, but upset at what he perceives as a lack of promotional support from his record label Universal Republic.
The rapper/singer has been on Twitter for the last several hours talking to fans and blasting his label. He started the day off by tweeting a picture of his new slit wrists tattoo.
"New Tat The old Scott is dead…slit wrists," was the message he attached to the pic.
He then proceeded to thank fans for their support of his new project and shovel dirt on his label.
"I just wanna say Thank You from the bottom of my heart to everyone who is supporting WZRD. Words cant express how i feel right now," he wrote, before some fans started letting him know they couldn't find the album in stores.
Cudi responded by threatening to hold back his next solo album, Man on the Moon III.
"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," Cudi wrote to his over 421,000 followers. "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? F*ck that, next album is WZRD. MOTM3 on hold til 2014."
I'm sure that got some label reps attention.
