Listen to Kid Cudi on iHeartRadio

Kid Cudi is saying "so long" to Kanye West's GOOD Music record label.  In a radio interview, Cudi said that his decision to leave the label was strictly a business move.  He says that "everything is cool" with Kanye and GOOD Music. 

Apparently, it took a long time for Cudi to break ties with the label because Kanye is his "big brother forever."  Cudi says he never to wanted to "offend" Kanye or hurt his feelings, so he put off leaving until he knew it was the right time.  Jay-Z even advised Cudi about whether he should quit the label.  

Kid Cudi says for now he will focus on building his own record label Wicked Awesome.  The news comes as Kid Cudi is gearing up to release his third album "Indicud," which will hit stores on April 23rd.
