Kid Cudi released his first studio album The man on the moon: the end of the day 12 years ago and it still holds the place of an influential album with the current sound that hip-hop has adopted today.
Cudi took to social media on Tuesday night to elevate his essential work when fans began to point out his low score on the Pitchfork rating scale.
“Pitchfork never gave me good grades, and here we are, years later and I’m still here. It’s okay man. They don’t need to change it,” Cudi wrote in response to the tweet from a fan about the album’s score, “The whole world knows, even my enemies, that this album was the one that changed hip hop forever.”
Fork recently released a list of albums they decided to re-record from the past, and some Cudi fans were upset that Man on the moon was not one of them. The rapper responded to another fan who asked him if having low scores on his albums ever touched him, to which he replied that his longevity had remedied those anxieties.
Cudi also jokingly responded to others who pointed out that the Peppa Pig cartoon children’s album had a higher score than MOTM.
Some of the albums that Pitchfork reinstated on their list including Chef Keef’s Back from the dead, of the prince Musicology, Daft punk Discovery, At Lana Del Rey Born to die, and more.
