Kid CuDi to Retire — But Still has an Awful Lot to Live for!

March 17, 2009

After a long and fruitful career that included the song “Day ‘N’ Nite,” streetwear rapper Kid CuDi announced on his blog that he plans to retire before his first album. The reason? People are saying things about him that he doesn’t like. Here’s an excerpt from the powerful statement:

I DONT LOOK AT IT AS QUITTING, FOR I HAVE ALREADY ACCOMPLISHED MY GOAL. I HAVE A SOLID FANBASE WHO TRUELY APPRECIATES ME AND MY MESSAGES THRU SONG, I GOT MULTIPLE BIG RECORDS, I HAVE RECIEVED WORLDWIDE CRITICAL ACCLAIM FROM THE BIGGEST TASTEMAKERS IN THE GAME, 3 FAN MADE BEST OF MIXTAPES WITHOUT EVEN RELEASING MORE THAN ONE MIXTAPE AND NOT EVEN RELEASING A ALBUM, I CAN PAY MY MOMS MORTGAGE AND HELP MY SISTER WITH MY NIECE AND HOLD MY BROTHERS DOWN WITH WUTEVER THEY NEED. THATS WUT I GOT IN THIS GAME FOR, TO ACCOMPLISH ALL THESE GOALS AND I HAVE. NO REGRETS IM SORRY TO THE FANS, IM SO SORRY YALL. I KNO U GUYS WILL ALL HATE ME, BUT REMEMBER, IM JUS A REGULAR DUDE WHO WAS GIVEN A AMAZING GIFT, AND NOW WITH THAT AMAZING GIFT CAME MORE UNCALLED FOR PROBLEMS THAN THE AVERAGE HUMAN BEING SHOULD HAVE TO DEAL WITH.

It’s pretty clear that typing in all-caps and ignoring basic rules of punctuation damage the clarity of one’s message, but how much? Here’s how it would have looked if Yankee slugger Lou Gehrig had announced his retirement (he coincidentally suffered from Lou Gehrig Disease — what were the odds?) in a BlackBerry-scribed blog:

FANS FOR THE PAST 2 WKS U HAVE BEEN READING ABOUT A BAD BREAK I GOT. YET 2DAY I CONSIDER MYSELF THE LUCKIEST MAN ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH. I HAVE BEEN N BALLPARKS 4 17 YEARS + HAVE NEVER RECEIVED ANYTHING BUT KINDNESS + ENCOURAGEMENT FROM U FANZ. LOOK AT THESE GRAND MEN!!! WHICH OF U WOULDNT CONSIDER IT THE HI-LITE OF HIS CAREER 2 ASSOCIATE WITH THEM 4 EVEN 1 DAY??? SURE I’M LUCKY. WHO WOULDNT CONSIDER IT AN HONOR 2 HAVE KNOWN JACOB THE JEWELER RUPPERT…ALSO THE BUILDER OF BASEBALLS GREATEST EMPIRE ED BARROW…2 HAVE SPENT THE NEXT 9 YRS WITH THAT OUTSTANDING LEADER…THAT SMART STUDENT OF PSYCHOLOGY…THE BEST MANAGER IN BASEBALL TODAY…JOE MCCARTHY!!! SURE I’M LUCKY. WHEN THE NY GIANTS…A TEAM U WOULD GIVE UR RIGHT ARM 2 BEAT AND VICE VERSA SENDS U A GIFT…THATS SOMETHING. WHEN U HAVE A WONDERFUL MOTHER IN LAW WHO TAKES SIDES WITH U IN SQUABBLES AGAINST HER OWN DAUGHTER…THATS SOMETHING. WHEN U HAVE A FATHER AND MOTHER WHO WORK ALL THEIR LIVES SO THAT U CAN HAVE AN EDUCATION AND BUILD UR BODY…ITS A BLESSING. WHEN U HAVE A WIFE WHO HAS  BEEN A TOWER OF STRENGTH + SHOWN MORE COURAGE THAN U DREAMED EXISTED…THATS THE FINEST I KNOW. SO I CLOSE IN SAYING THAT I MIGHT HAVE HAD A TUFF BREAK…BUT I HAVE AN AWFUL LOT 2 LIVE 4!!!
