Kid Cudi fans received some good news and some bad news tonight. Bad news first, if you were excited to catch Cudi on his new tour, you will have to wait as it has been indefinitely canceled for the time being. “Things weren’t together production wise and I need a bit to make some changes,” Cudi told fans. 

Although fans won’t see Cudi hit the road tomorrow as planned, there still is some good news as Kid Cudi made things up to his fans by releasing his Plain Pat produced record, ‘Speedin’ Bullet 2 Heaven’, ahead of schedule.

Here at The Early Registration we like to pride ourselves on our music knowledge. To stay polished on our musical expertise, our new feature is a little game of musical “6 Degrees”. For those who are unfamiliar, six degrees of separation is the theory that everyone in the world is connected by six or fewer steps, so we are now taking the liberty of connecting musicians whom you would never think could be connected, in exactly six steps. This week our  piece is dedicated to Lollapalooza amazing lineup, which is coming to Chicago in just a couple of weeks. To keep things interesting we challenged ourself to connect one Lollapalooza headliner (Sam Smith) to another Lollapalooza headliner (Paul McCartney). The twist is can we do this using only other artists from Lollapalooza’s lineup this year? Find out below!

Kid Cudi Doesn’t Forget: Slams Hot 97 for 2009 Interview

Kid Cudi doesn’t forget. In 2009, Cudi stopped by Hot 97 and instead of being asked about the message of his new album, or something with a bit of substance, Angie Martinez (who was then with Hot 97) and DJ Enuff instead spent a big bulk of the interview talking about Kid Cudi’s skinny jeans. Even though skinny jeans are more accepted now in rap (maybe not when it’s Drake at Governor’s Ball though), Kid Cudi was a bit ahead of his time.

While Kid Cudi kept his cool during the interview, six years later (today) he decided to speak up as he shared the interview on social media with the caption “Look at these two fucks tryna play me back in the day. This was 2009. Angie Martinez and DJ Enuff. Fuckin clueless.” Kid Cudi for the win.

Watch Kid Cudi’s 2009 interview with Hot 97 below.

Travis Scott Talks Kanye, Kid Cudi, J. Cole Comments and Unique Album Release

In a new interview with MTV, G.O.O.D. Music rapper Travis Scott covered a number of topics including his Rodeo Tour, working with Kanye West and Drake, Kid Cudi, his comments about J. Cole and Chance the Rapper, and his forthcoming debut album. Speaking on his Rodeo Tour and when he told fans to get hype, reminding them that his show isn’t a J. Cole or Chance the Rapper concert, Travis told MTV that there was no disrespect meant towards either but his show is different and like a “real life circus”.

And fans who have caught the circus can get excited for La Flame’s upcoming debut album, Rodeo. Scott specifically took time to talk about the unique release method of his upcoming album (and no it won’t be a “surprise album”), “the way I’m dropping the album this year, is different than others.” He said though that he won’t drop his album until there is a Kid Cudi collaboration (the two have been in the studio together though). Another treat from the interview, speaking on Kanye West’s new album, is that ‘All Day’ is nowhere near the hardest banger on the album. So get excited for Ye’s new album, Mr. Solo Dolo meets La Flame, and check out the full interview below.
