All On The Cover: Kid Cudi Covers Complex Magazine

This time last year Complex Magazine’s Joe La Puma interviewed Kid Cudi for their Aug/Sept cover story that took an in depth look into Cudi’s life and music. This time around they’re back for another cover and a follow up that leads to an even better story.

Complex Magazine revealed the first cover for their October/November issue, and it features Kid Cudi making his second return to the Complex‘s front. The cover story with Cudi was also released and features an interview with Joe La PumaCudi takes the gloves off so to speak, and opens up about his new album, “Man On The Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager”. Cudi says the album is “dark, and smart explicit.” It’s no surprise since Cudi‘s music is exceptionally personal and authentic.  His debut LP, which Complex named album of the year, is also one of many fans favorite for the emotion and passion Cudi channels through his songs.  His experiences shape the music, and since the release of the first record, Cudi‘s definitely had a lot of tough ones.  He’s been to jail, had a child, been kicked off tour with Lady Gaga, and struggled with drug abuse. He addresses all those things, and has some choice words for Wale and Perez Hilton in the Complex interview.

Check out some excerpts from the interview below after the jump….

About Wale:

“Then people like Wale get mad that ‘Ye ain’t give him no beats—’Ye ain’t give you no beats because we ain’t fucking with your raps. It’s not a conspiracy theory. We don’t fuck with you musically, so we’re not going to provide music for you. The shit is a service, it’s a quality of a certain standard. Niggas are just so thirsty it’s ridiculous. I’ve been eating humble pie forever, and people still call me an asshole. These people don’t know my fucking life—now I’m going to give them something to talk about.”

About Perez Hilton:

“Even Perez Hilton said some shit about me. He might be a good person and have a good heart, but he does a lot of fuckhead shit. Who are you to talk about people? That’s not cool. That’s why the world is so fucked up, because of hate. And he’s gay? I just don’t get that. The gay people I know are about peace and love and coming together. That shit doesn’t register with me. He’s a chump and a coward, and it’s fucked up because I met dude so many times and he had nothing but love to show me. Then when that shit happened with Lady Gaga kicking me off her tour, he had to run his mouth and judge me on that shit.”

On his drug use:

“I started doing cocaine to get through interviews, ’cause people wanted to know a lot about my personal life and I wasn’t prepared for a 60 Minutes interview every time. Doing bumps I was able to get through the day, but then I would smoke weed to calm me down—it was the only way I could get through the day without people noticing I was doing it.”

“I never thought it was a problem, but I was definitely high-fiving death a couple of times. It took a lot for me to talk about shit like this on the album. I don’t feel like I need to explain myself to anyone besides the fans. My fans don’t believe shit until they hear me say it. And those are true Kid Cudi fans. I want them to know the story.”

About his daughter:

“There’s another thing people don’t know. I have a daughter, born March 26th of this year. Her name is Vada, and she’s fucking awesome. That was eating me up, and it was stressing me out that nobody knew about her. I was trying to escape from that, too. Just trying to figure it out and make everyone happy, it’s a lot for somebody my age to handle. I was manning up and dealing with it in what I thought was the right way, but it was the wrong way. I want to be around for her. I can honestly say she was the wake-up call. The reality that it’s bigger than just you now—you have a responsibility and there’s no more time for mistakes. It’s time to stop fucking around.”

About Lupe Fiasco:

“Besides the fam, and Yeezy and Don C, there’s one artist in this game who has always had my back and had nothing but love to show, and that’s Lupe Fiasco. Every time I see that man, it’s nothing but love—I saw him a little after it, and he was like “I’m worried about you, man, just checking in.” He’s somebody who I know really genuinely gives a fuck. Noreaga also checked in.”

On Kanye x Cudi:

“Can I be honest with you? I don’t think anybody is fucking with what we—me and Kanye—got. Creatively, there’s nobody. You can argue all day about who has the best album, there’s never going to be an answer. There are other artists who are hot for God knows what reason. But as far as creativity, pound for pound, track for track, video for video, hands down, there’s nobody fucking with me and ‘Ye.”

Just In: Gayle King Rejects Chris Brown’s Apology

Gayle King said she wasn’t moved by Chris Brown apology, in which he said Sunday he is “saddened … over what transpired” with girlfriend Rihanna .

“I can’t think of anything that makes me support anything that Chris Brown is saying at this time,”King tells Extra. “And my heart just aches for Rihanna.”

Usmagazine.com spoke to other stars over the weekend about Brown, 19, who said in his statement that he is “seeking the counseling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones” after allegedly attacking his girlfriend in Los Angeles Feb. 8.

Here’s what the celebs had to say:

CARRIE UNDERWOOD
“I don’t think anybody actually knows what happened. I have no advice because, thank goodness, I’ve never been in any kind of abusive situation. You hear a new one every five minutes, and some of them are getting kind of ridiculous. I really hope everyone will lay off and just let everybody who’s involved figure out everything first.”

JAY-Z
“This is a real situation. You have to have compassion for others. Just imagine it being your sister or mom and then think about how we should talk about that. I just think we should all support her. She’s going through a tough time. You have to realize she’s a young girl, as well. She’s very young.”

KELLIE PICKLER
“I think the world would be a better place if people worried more about what they needed to do to be better people, than … judging others on what kind of people they are. I don’t know what really went on with Rihanna and Chris, and I dont think anyone else does, either. The only people who really, truly know are only the two of them, so I am not going to assume or comment. I’m going to mind my own business.”

HEIDI MONTAG
“I don’t know what happened there, but our thoughts and prayers go out to both of them. Its such a crazy situation. I hope everything heals. I don’t know what to say.”

UGLY BETTY’S MARK INDELICATO
“I don’t really know that much about it. I think that doing that to a woman is wrong in any way. It doesn’t matter who did it to you. But, you know, I don’t know that much about it, so I can’t really comment too much on it.”

LINDSAY LOHAN
“I have no comment on that. That’s not my relationship. I have no reason to speak about it. I think they’re both great people.”

LUPE FIASCO
“They are great live and both are good people. It’s a tragedy.”

MOLLY SIMS
“It’s so sad. I don’t think anybody knows the whole truth, but I guess the truth really doesn’t matter when [abuse] is the result. That should never happen, no matter what. And I love his music. That being said, I think [about] Rihanna : No girl, no woman, no mother, no sister, no friend, no one deserves that. Absolutely.”

NIA LONG
“I know both of them well. They’re young, and all we can do is pray for them at this point.”

RUBEN STUDDARD
“I’m still praying for him. Everybody always has something negative to say about everything, and I always try to be positive. They’ve both made wonderful careers for themselves, and I think they will continue to do so for the rest of their lives.”

MARY J. BLIGE
“They’re both young and beautiful people, and that’s it.”

MARK CURRY
“Women, throughout history, have been beaten and prostituted. Even today in movies and music, they’re portrayed as low-grade, so you know, he’s a youngster, and he can correct his ways. It’s just a tragedy – women and abuse.”
