Following a busy year of acting, executive producing movies/TV shows and releasing his Man on the Moon III: The Chosen album, Kid Cudi is ready to step into the fashion world. On Tuesday night (January 26), the Cleveland native took to Twitter to announce that he’s starting his own clothing line and the first pieces will be available sometime in 2021.
“Finally startin my own clothing line,” he revealed. “Been a long time comin and another dream of mine. More madness, true vision, freshness comin soon!!!”
He added in a separate tweet, “This summer ima have my first drop of stuff.”
On the topic of clothing, a fan claimed Kid Cudi had “already created skinny jeans,” to which he agreed.
“No lies here,” Cudi said, before anticipating his upcoming jeans will be the “ultimate denims.”
Kid Cudi also took the opportunity to open up about his mental health following suicidal thoughts and checking into rehab in 2016.
“Man so much to do and see,” he said. “Since 2016 I’ve been climbin upward. Comin from rehab, suicidal thoughts, not loving myself, hating my life…to being beyond happy, loving myself more than ever, doin everything I always dreamed of. My angels been watchin over me. I am truly blessed.”
In September 2016, Kanye West claimed he in fact wore skinny jeans first while on stage in Houston. The comments were made in response to Cudi, who had mentioned Ye and Drake in a tweet that said, “These n-ggas don’t give a fuck about me. And they aint fuckin with me.”
“I’m so hurt,” Ye said at the time. “I feel so disrespected. Kid Cudi, we two black men in a racist world. I wore skinny jeans first! I got called names before you, bro! Why y’all gotta be coming at me? This ain’t the end of the Malcolm X movie! I’m out here fighting for y’all! Creatives! Artists! Independent thinkers! Don’t ever mention my name in a bad manner! None of y’all! I birthed you.”
Kanye and Cudi quickly put their issues behind them and came together for their collaborative Kids See Ghosts album in 2018.
