Kid Cudi announced today the three features appearing on his debut album, Man On The Moon: The Guardians, tentatively set for August on G.O.O.D. Music/Universal Motown. Those features will be none other than label CEO Kanye West, label-mate Common, and artistic influence Snoop Dogg.
The Cleveland rapper did not reveal any further details than that, but did admit that both UK Pop songstress Lily Allen and OutKast member Andre 3000 declined requests to appear on the album.
Cudi wrote in his trademark, all caps with liberal spelling, "IT MADE ME REALIZE THO, DO I REALLY WANNA GO IN ON FEATURES? SURE I LIKE THESE ARTISTS BUT THIS FIRST ALBUM NEEDS TO BE ABOUT WUT I CAN DO. I FEEL LIKE A LOT OF PEOPLE STILL THINK ITS A GAME SO I WILL FOREVER FEEL LIKE I HAVE SUTTIN TO PROVE."
The artist, who recently made mention of retiring as a rookie, said his next album will be driven off of collaborations, pairing Cudi with an assortment of artists that inspire him.
