Kid CuDi and the G.O.O.D. Music family recently appeared on the cover of Complex magazine, taking time out to deliver individual interviews. During his discussion, Cudders spoke on what it’s like to work with Kanye West after years of building their relationship, and says that it’s “still really scary” to be in the studio with him.
“Working with him now is still really scary. He has a specific vision for things and you want to get it right for him. When I don’t, I get frustrated with myself. Or, if he misunderstands something and then I’m like, ‘No. That’s not what I meant.’ You just want to make it right and contribute. It’s a bummer if you don’t get what he wants at first, but you just keep at it and it’s always a group thing,” he said. “It’s always going to be that pressure. I don’t think I’m never going to be comfortable in a studio with him? If that happens, it’d be awesome, but I’m always going to hold him in that high regard. I know some people say, ‘Oh, I can catch up to the guy that I was up under,’ but I can never catch up to ‘Ye, even if he stopped now. I still hold him in that much of a regard as a legend so I’m always going to have that.”
CuDi, who is at work on his upcoming album indicud, said that G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer compilation is just a taste of what listeners will expect from his solo effort. “I’ve been writing some really serious raps. I’ve been writing some shit that’s going to fuck people up. And it’s about that time that I let niggas know.”
