Tyler, The Creator’s amazing Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival blessed Los Angeles with another year of great music but at a brand location, LA’s Dodger Stadium. With a new venue and an epic lineup, the closing day of this year’s carnival saw performances from Post Malone, Jaden Smith, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Taco with special guests Tyler, The Creator and Juice WRLD, Jorja Smith and a very special headlining performance by Kanye West and Kid Cudi for their Kids See Ghosts album.

It’s starting to get cold in the Windy City but the live music scene is getting hotter than ever. We’re months removed from the summer festival season, but Chi-town is bringing some of the biggest artists in the world to the city for some amazing shows.
From Red Bull Sound Select’s “30 Days In Chicago” series, with concerts from Migos, Lil Yachty, 6LACK and the big reunion of the Big Tymers (to name a few), to some big headlining arena shows from The Weeknd, Halsey, Guns N Roses and more, Chicago (and the surrounding areas) are delivering some of the best concerts of the year in November.

Kid Cudi has been on quite the hiatus as late, focusing on his mental health and at times getting involved with very public feuds. But the Moon Man is back, as he surprised fans today with the announcement of his headlining Passion, Pain & Demon Slaying tour.
Kicking things off on September 30th in Philadelphia, Cudi will make stops in Cleveland, Dallas, Milwaukee, Atlanta, Chicago, Denver and many more, until the fall tour comes to an end on November 22nd in Seattle. Tickets are bound to go fast, so check out Kid Cudi’s official website for more information.
Tyler The Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival is back and better than ever in 2017. Taking place on Halloween weekend (October 28-29) this year, the festival will be headlined by Lana Del Rey, Kid Cudi, Solange and of course Tyler The Creator himself.

There is no better way to spend Halloween this year, than at the Los Angeles Exposition Park. Fans can visit Camp Flog Gnaw’s official website for tickets and more information.
Kid Cudi is back with his sixth studio album, Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’. After things were going downhill, with a trip to rehab and public beefs with Drake and his former label-head and friend, Kanye West, Kid Cudi seems to be doing great and perhaps better than ever. And with a new album, with Grade A features from Andre 3000, Pharrell, Travis Scott and more, what can possibly be wrong?
The new LP already has one big, and especially meaningful co-sign, as Kanye West shared the link to the album this afternoon, and dubbed the LP as “super inspiring”. Not only is this significant because it’s Kanye West, but given the up-and-down history between Kanye and Cudi, we are sure that this co-sign has a little more meaning for the Man on the Moon. So see what all Kanye’s hype is about, and downloadPassion, Pain & Demon Slayin’ now!
Everyone seems to be taking sides ever since the release of Drake’s new record ‘Two Birds One Stone’, where the 6 God takes shots at Kid Cudi, among others. And while Cudi is still in rehab for his depression, we finally have a response from his team as his manager, Dennis Cummings, has responded.
“Drake corny as fuck,” Cummings said via his Twitter. Cudi’s manager also added, “How Aubrey (Drake) and his writers take a shot with the same hands they used to beg for a feature???”
While Cudi and Drake both have made some incredible music, everyone seems to think that one or the other is in the wrong, and Drake has faced a lot of criticism for dissing Cudi since. On ‘Two Birds One Stone’, Drake raps, “you were the man on the moon, now you just go through your phases,” is one particular lyric that Cudi fans took issue with, for potentially making light of depression and metal illness.
Although many think that Drake shouldn’t have brought up Cudi’s mental illness issues, many still side with Drake since Kid Cudi started the beef by calling out Drake and Kanye West on Twitter. Cudi went on a Twitter rant last month saying, “everyone thinks they’re soooo great. Talkin top 5 and be having 30 people write songs for them”, then specifically calling out Drake and Kanye. Should being depressed give a rapper a free pass to call out whoever they want?
We definitely hope Kid Cudi gets better soon, but lets hope Kanye, Cudi and Drake can all get along in the near future. Check out Cudi’s manager’s response below!
Trigger fingers turned to Twitter fingers earlier today as former GOOD Music rapper Kid Cudi has sent shots at his rap peers, Drake and his former labelhead, Kanye West. Although the relationship between Kanye and Cudi has been rocky ever since Cudi left GOOD, it seemed that all was well again when Cudi appeared on Kanye’s The Life of Pablo for his track, ‘Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1’.
But apparently not, as earlier today Cudi tweeted “the days of the fuckery are over”, continuing “the fake ones wont be lasting too much longer.” Kid Cudi also added, “everyone thinks they’re soooo great. Talkin top 5 and be having 30 people write songs for them.” While many speculated who Cudi was talking about, he later put any speculation to rest when he called out Kanye and Drake specifically.
“My tweets apply to who they apply. (Kan)Ye, Drake, whoever. These niggas dont give a fuck about me. And they aint fuckin with me.”
This isn’t the first time Cudi has called out Kanye, which Ye has yet to ever respond to publicly. While the two always seem to make up and hop back in the studio, it will be interesting to see if that happens again following Cudi’s most recent tweets.
Rapper Kid Cudi has announced that he would release two album in 2016, and while we are still waiting for the first of the two (which are titled Passion, Pain and Demon Slayin’), today Mr. Solo Dolo has released a brand new track. Following his releases of ‘The Frequency’ and ‘All In’, today we have Cudi’s ‘Goodbye’.
Produced by Cudi’s band/duo “WZRD”, which consists of himself and producer Dot da Genius, the record features samples from Pink Floyd and Tupac’s 1992 film “Juice”, all while Kid Cudi flows over the track. No word whether ‘Goodbye’ is from Passion, Pain, Demon Slayin’ or none of the above, but either way, it’s always great to hear new music from the Cleveland native.
Kid Cudi kicked off his 2016 in the coolest way possible when he invited some of his biggest fans to watch the new Star Wars with him in Glendale, California. With appearances from Cudi fans (including Jaden Smith), is there any better way to watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens? Likely not… So definitely stay glued to your favorite artists on Twitter because you never know when you might be able to catch a film with them at your local cinema.
