Kid Cudi has exciting news for his fans as he gears up to release a new album titled "INSANO" later this year. With fans eagerly anticipating the project, Cudi initially planned to drop it on September 15th, but due to unforeseen circumstances, the release was delayed.

However, the silver lining is that the album is now expected to feature a whopping 40 songs, promising an extensive musical experience for his dedicated followers. What's more, Cudi has teased collaborations with some of the biggest names in hip-hop, building anticipation for a star-studded album.

While Cudi's fan base is buzzing with excitement, there's always a share of detractors. Recently, a Twitter user referenced Cudi's iconic Saturday Night Live performance, where he wore a dress as a tribute to Kurt Cobain. However, the commenter suggested a conspiracy theory, labeling it an "Illuminati humiliation ritual." Cudi, known for his thoughtful and expressive nature, responded to the criticism with a well-articulated clapback.

In his response, Cudi addressed the user named Isaac, calling out the baseless conspiracy theory. He emphasized the importance of artistic expression and confidence for a black man without it being undermined by unfounded claims. Cudi credited his success to divine guidance and expressed pride in the moment that inspired many, highlighting the significance of freedom and self-expression in art.

Despite Cudi's eloquent response, the incident sheds light on the challenges artists face in the age of social media, where opinions can quickly turn into baseless conspiracies. Cudi's ability to articulate his thoughts serves as a reminder of the importance of understanding and appreciating artistic expression in all its forms, even in the face of unwarranted criticism.
