Kid Cudi Announces New EP Name on Twitter: 'SATELLITE FLIGHT: The Journey To Mother Moon'
In a recent interview with Music Connection, Kid Cudi announced that Man on the Moon 3 would release in 2015, along wth the news that he would be releasing an EP in the next three months as an appetizer to his next album. Today, Cudi announced the title of the upcoming EP via Twitter.
The Cleveland-bred rapper previously explained that the project will include features from King Chip and Dot da Genius. Cudi released his latest album, Indicud, back in April.
The Cleveland native also expressed to Music Connection that Man on the Moon III will be the final installment of the series and will answer an important question for the 29-year-old: has he finally obtained happiness?
Check out an excerpt of the conversation below:
MC: There is also much anticipation for another MOTM (Man on the Moon: The End of Day) record. What can we expect from that?
KiD CuDi: "Man on the Moon III will show a whole other level of maturity, and it will answer a whole lot of questions. There’s a lot of missing links between MOTM and MOTM II. I also think that they were both very ignorant albums, so I think I’ll eliminate a lot of that ignorance.
You’ll see it coming from a person who is looking at things from a more mature mindset, with more understanding and growth. I want people to be able to put this album on at different points in their lives and grow with me. This series was meant to show me grow as a man and it would not be right to do MOTM III and have me talking about driving drunk. I didn’t want people to listen and feel like, “Oh he’s giving us a lesson,” rather than be entertained, but I’m not condoning that shit, that’s not cool. When I’m singing about driving drunk on “Pursuit of Happiness” on MOTM, you may remember that it was a nightmare. It was meant to be scary, the craziness, the fact that this person chooses to look for happiness in substances; and that’s scary, that’s a terrible combination, that’s a terrible way to go about things.
MOTM III will really be answering the biggest question: Have I found happiness? And it will lead people on in life, because there will not be another MOTM after MOTM III. It will send people off feeling satisfied."
