Kid Cudi‘s debut mixtape, A Kid Named Cudi, is slated to release on both streaming services and vinyl “very soon,” he said during an interactive performance on the new live music app, Encore, Tuesday night (March 8).
A Kid Named Cudi officially released in 2008 and was Cudi’s first-ever full-length project. Following the success of his breakout single, “Day ‘n’ Nite,” the tape was available for free download upon its release, holding fan-favorites in “The Prayer,” “Cleveland Is The Reason” and the legendary “Man On The Moon” — which went on to inspire his Man On The Moon trilogy.
Last year (March 2021), Cudi had initially tweeted that he was working on getting his beloved debut mixtape onto digital streaming platforms. During his Encore performance with Lyrical Lemonade director Cole Bennett — also the founder of the interactive music platform — he confirmed that it was coming “very soon,” also divulging that the vinyl version would be releasing along with its digital counterpart.
With much more music from Kid Cudi on the way, including his upcoming Netflix series and coinciding album, 2022 is slated to be yet another marquee year for Cudder.
