As Kid Cudi fans eagerly await the imminent arrival of his debut mixtape, A Kid Named Cudi, on streaming services, the Ohio-bred lyricist decided to refresh the project’s cover art on Monday (July 11), which sparked some backlash from a day one fan.
The mixtape’s original cover featured Mr. Solo Dolo’s face placed behind some black writing, but Cudder has since updated it to be a black-and-white photo of himself sitting on some steps donning a plaid shirt and backward hat.
“Mel D Cole took this photo on 9.22.08 in NYC,” Cudi wrote in an Instagram caption announcing the new art. “Right before my life changed forever.”
A fan took issue with the swap, writing on Twitter, “I’m sorry cud but the og cover is too iconic.”
