Kid Cudi Announces Label Name and New Band Name

R&B/Hip-Hop Chart Juice: Kid Cudi, Cee Lo Green, Trey Songz

While performing in New York City on Thursday (April 21), Kid Cudi announced the name of his new record label, "Wicked Awesome Records."

In February, Kid Cudi announced his split with his managers Patrick "Plain Pat" Reynolds and Emile Haynie (Dream On Records) via Twitter and starting his own with producer, Dot Da Genius.

Cudi proceeded with more news the same night, announcing he'd changed his band name from "Wizard" to "2 Be Continuum." Cudi wanted something "original," after finding many groups with the same name on iTunes.

"We've been working real hard on this project. I'm really f*cken excited for you to hear it," Cudi says in regards to his third album, "Wizard." Cudi shares working hard with Dot and playing the guitar on this project, and even if only for nine months, he assures the records are "epic" and that "it's still wizardry at it's finest."

We should expect the first single off "Wizard" this summer.
