Kid Cudi Says He’s ‘Approaching The End Of Music’ – He Wants To Be A Teacher – Rolling Stone

Cudi said he wants to “infect the youth with that freshness”

call him sir cudi! While you’re brightened up with a new episode of Hot Ones, Kid Cudi opened up about where he sees his music career going, admitting he doesn’t know if he’ll be making music much longer. In fact, he said, he already has a different career path in mind.

Speaking about getting older in the world of hip-hop, Cudi said he feels like he’s “kinda nearing the end of all things Kid Cudi,” citing other rappers including Snoop Dogg, Jay- Z, Eminem and more, who have managed to keep their careers going over the decades. “I feel like I don’t have what they have,” Cudi said. “I just don’t know if I want to make music and drop albums for much longer.

Cudi, who recently dropped the Netflix project Entergalactic alongside an album of the same name, said he already has a few ideas about what he could do outside of the music industry.

“I am very curious what else I can do. I was thinking about this, this is like a crazy idea I had years ago,” he said. “It would be cool to be a kindergarten teacher someday. Just do that for a few years.”

He added: “When I was 50, I was a kindergarten teacher for about 10 years, but infected the youth with that freshness. Then those children will spread the freshness in the world.”

But until he enters the class, fans can take lessons from Cudi on his album Entergalacticwith songs like ‘Do What I Want’, ‘Willing to Trust’ with Ty Dolla $ign and ‘Can’t Believe It’ with 2 Chainz.
