Kid Cudi shared on Twitter that he will release one more album as part of his record deal. He also said that he doesn’t know what will happen after.

The Man on the Moon fueled retirement rumors when promoting his project for the Netflix series. Cudder has always been one to look at other mediums for inspiration or expression such as fashion, film, or visual arts.

“This is for all my fans that have been ridin w me for so long,” he shared in a separate tweet. “This will be all new music. The songs ive teased ill prolly put out as singles here and there to hold u over.”
Others are also recognizing Cudi’s importance. He’s set to be honored with the Groundbreaker Award at the fifth annual Celebration of Black Cinema & Television awards show in L.A. Angela Bassett, Michael B. Jordan, and Berry Gordy are also honor recipients. The Cleveland native earns his award for his role as Jabari in his Netflix series Entergalactic.
“The Celebration of Black Cinema & Television has grown tremendously over the last five years,” CCA CEO Joey Berlin said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to be able to recognize such outstanding projects across both film and television, and to honor these incredible actors and filmmakers for their work.”
“This is such an honor,” Cudi tweeted when he heard the news. “I never win anything cant wait to celebrate w all the awesome legends in Dec.”
