Kid Cudi rants against his label (again), this time threatening "some problems" if radio play doesn't pick up

Kid Cudi is starting off the new year doing what he does best: complaining.
Last year he ranted against his “weak ass” label Universal, saying they under-shipped WZRD and treated the album “like some indie side project tax write off,” and now he’s at it again.
This time it’s Republic, who he says are failing to get his songs enough radio play.
To my label, I swear to all that is fuckin holy in this world, if things dont change soon, theres gonna be some problems— The Chosen One (@KidCudi) January 8, 2013
I worked too hard on all this shit. Producing, writing, directing AND executing the shit proper. I did my part, I put in work. Wtf— The Chosen One (@KidCudi) January 8, 2013
Yall kno I cuts no slack. Not w my music. Every song is my life. A piece of my fuckin tormented soul. It matters to me. I give a fuck— The Chosen One (@KidCudi) January 8, 2013
Yeah, you read that right: he actually threatened his label (veiled, of course) because his song isn’t getting spun as much as Trinidad James‘.
Trinidad James got 4.1 million views on his hit (rightfully so), and I hear that jam EVERYWHERE. Wheres my fuckin spins???— The Chosen One (@KidCudi) January 8, 2013
Want to know the real reason why Republic isn’t pushing your music, Kid Cudi? It’s because you owe them an album. There’s no benefit to them pushing a single off an album (the unfortunately titled Indicud) that’s already been pushed back once and is still only set with a tentative release date (sometime in March).
