Once more, Kid Cudi is receiving harsh criticism from music lovers. Some fans who observed the artist’s recent removal of his song “Love” from SoundCloud said they preferred the DSP version over the free one. The “Man on the Moon” singer publicly vented on Twitter over the abuse he has received for removing the song, saying that these problems have led him to consider quitting music.
“It’s one of the reason i dont want to do music anymore. (Some) fans can be toxic and not cool sometimes. And this app really be showin some of yall true colors,” the singer tweeted.
In a later tweet, he said that he is confident that if he stops making albums, he will find happiness once more. The reaction seems to have reached Cudi’s breaking point. He did, however, confirm in a subsequent tweet that despite his outburst, he is sincerely appreciative of his “blessings” in life.
Fans disapprove of his response despite the fact that it is true. “Kid Cudi should love all his fans not pick and choose because of the music platform they use,” one person wrote, adding that he should give his fans more credit for speaking out. The online backlash started earlier today when a fan lauded Kid Cudi’s SoundCloud rendition of his bonus track from The Boy Who Flew to the Moon Vol. 1 and called it a masterpiece.
