Kid Cudi was loosely playing around with the idea of launching his own podcast on Twitter this week and ultimately decided to go for it. On Wednesday night (June 24), Cudi laid out an outline for what his podcast would look like.
“All love no shit talkin,” he wrote. “Only uplifting artists and talkin w my friends and fans. All positive vibes! It’ll be like ur hangin w me smokin and shootin the shit for awhile. Itll be meant to comfort the lonely.”

Cudi has been vocal about his struggles with mental health over the years and a podcast could present an opportunity to help others. In 2016, he checked into a rehab facility to tackle his suicidal urges and bouts of depression.
“If I didn’t come here, I would’ve done something to myself,” he explained in a Facebook post. “I simply am a damaged human swimming in a pool of emotions everyday of my life. Theres a ragin violent storm inside of my heart at all times. Idk what peace feels like. Idk how to relax.
“My anxiety and depression have ruled my life for as long as I can remember and I never leave the house because of it. I cant make new friends because of it. I dont trust anyone because of it and Im tired of being held back in my life.”
Now that Cudi is in a better place, he was able to celebrate his first No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hit in April thanks to “The Scotts,” his collaboration with Travis Scott.
