Kid Cudi Will Release Debut Mixtape 'A Kid Named Cudi' on Streaming Services

Following Jhené Aiko's sailing soul(s) debut on streaming services, Kid Cudi is putting his early mixtape A Kid Named Cudi on the same platforms.

Cudi took to Twitter to announce that he would put up the project on streaming. A scheduled release date was not announced, but it could take a while for the artist and his team to clear the 12 samples cleared.

A Kid Named Cudi dropped in July 2008 and marked the artist's debut mixtape and first official release. The project was met with critical praise and caught the ear of Kanye West, who signed Cudi to G.O.O.D. Music that same year. The 17-track mixtape includes early fan favorites such as “Day ‘n’ Nite” — which also served as the lead single of his debut studio album Man on the Moon: The End of Day — “50 Ways to Make A Record” and “Man on the Moon (The Anthem).”
