Kid Cudi To take a break from music to focus on film work

Kid Cudi is going to be taking a year off from music to focus on his film and TV work.

The 40 year old rapper released his 10th studio album ‘Insano (Nitro Mega)’ on February 25th 2024 but he’s already warned fans there’s going to be a long wait until his next release because he’s decided to push the next record back until 2026 so he can spend the next 12 months working on his acting projects.

In a post on X he explained: “My next album is already about 80 per cent done, and it’ll be out in 2026. As always, we’re takin it someplace new. Just wanted to let yall know, expect an album from me every other year … next year is all about filmin. Got a bunch of stuff I need to get done. Film and TV. So I take a year off of music to do it all.”

The hip-hop star has been acting since 2009 and has appeared in films including ‘Silent Night’, ‘X’ its prequel ‘Pearl’ while he’s also appeared in TV shows such as ‘Westworld’.

He’s believed to be working on another movie in the ‘X’ slasher franchise, a movie adaptation of Brandon Taylor’s novel ‘Real Life’ and zombie horror ‘Hell Naw’.
