Kid Cudi may be the most talked about new guy in hip-hop but that still doesn't give him all the power in the world. Reaching out to Lily Allen and Andre 3000 to collaborate with them, he got rejected.
Here is his blog that explains it all:
I ONLY HAVE 3 FEATURES FOR MY ALBUM WHICH IS MY BIG HOMIE SNOOP, KANYE AND COMMON. THE OTHER 2 ARTISTS I ASKED SO FAR TO BE ON MY ALBUM: LILY ALLEN AND ANDRE 3000, HAVE DECLINED MY REQUEST FOR A COLLAB. 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. U GUYS NEED TO HEAR MORE OF ME SO WHEN UR DEBATIN WITH UR FRIENDS ABOUT HOW ILL MAN ON THE MOON IS, THEY CAN BE LIKE “YEA, YOU RIGHT” LOL HAHA
