    That Day and Nite song was trash.
    • lankaistai
      i agree, i couldn't stand that song too

      Even if you do not like Day N Night, there is no way you can justify Trinidad James (and many others) having their songs play on the radio and not Kid Cudi. Even if you are not a die hard kid cudi fan, there simply is no way you can say that his shit isn't good enough for radio play. Have you listened to the garbage that gets spins lately? If Kirko Bangz can get played 6 times a day, I think they can spin Cudder at least once, right?

    Universal probably remembers than last rant he went on with the WZRD album so they have him on a time out.

    kid cudi was a one hit wonder . career is over . he was never really hip hop he was pop crap . his music is trash
    • lankaistai
      i kinda agree with that as well
  • yeaaahh
    Fuck the radio! They play the same 9-10 songs every hour! Like someone already said I think Day n Night was the only Cudi song I've ever heard on the radio. He's got a loyal fanbase so he'll be fine though. One of the best from the new generation.

    I understand cudis frustrations. I honestly havint herd a cudi song on the radio since day n night.but I think cudi doesint even need the radio to sell records. His fan base is probably the most loyal one in hiphop. Lets see if there will be plenty of Trinidad James fans 4 years from now

    talk about catchin feelings, this twitter bullshit is no good for hiphop. be mad at the internet for fuckin up yo spins. a tormented soul, you emo bitch.
  • Lawliet
    I actually understand his point and it has much to do with the systematic choosing of songs and the agenda they serve. Yes his music is good, for example sake, 4.3 million wouldn't of watched online otherwise. Cudi pleaing for his songs to get airtime is just, but the radio won't play 'What I am', the chorus promotes Marijuana - and the people who control what you listen woulnd't want you smoking that and realising how much life f*cks us every day. It's all about agenda, Cudi makes good music no doubt, he just doesn't fit what the media moguls want the mainstream to hear. Trinidad James? I won't go into much detail, but I'm sure 99% of your other rappers talk about much more about cars, clothes and not to mention money - keeping you in the endless mindframe that spending your hard earning part-time or full-time wages like a multi-millionaire is possible. I've ramble enough - just connect the dots already people, connect the damn dots.

    Call Drake? Bam hit. LOL jk kudi stans gona get mad. Lololol Drop another hit like Day N Nite? You have to think about the record label too. If I was a record label, I want to make profit too. I can't give money to an artist and get less what I get out of it.
  • ha
    his problem is giving a fuck about radio plays in the first place. it's all about the internet. get with the times fool
  • MightyMike27
    Did someone forget to tell Cudi that the radio doesn't play good "real" music???
    • Anonymous
      i second that, i do not even listen to the radio... on second thought if i know of a rapper constantly getting played on the radio, i am less likely to give them a chance because of all the garbage they play. (boston radio) if cudi's stuff is good then it will create a buzz and people will listen... guess his shit aint good.
    • Anonymous
      it ain't just boston bruh. radio is playing bullshit EVERYWHERE! LOL internet & satellite radio is where it's at. fuck AM-FM radio/BET/MTV/etc.

    Man on the Moon 2 went gold with no radio play and shitty marketing. Fuck mainstream that mainstream shit, when the music is good it promotes itself
  • datnigga
    Teleport 2 Me is timeless music, where was that on the radio? And the video is even more epic, can't believe how under the radar it is. True art, not for radio anyways.
