Kid Cudi’s Man on the Moon Series Might Not Be Over After All
After finishing their first listen of Kid Cudi’s final installment of the Man on the Moon trilogy, fans are left wondering if part four is actually on the way.
On Friday (Dec. 11), Kid Cudi shared Man on the Moon III: The Chosen. Though the 18-track album was stamped as the final record in the series, after listening to “Lord I Know,” the 36-year-old rapper has got something up his sleeve. At the end of the three-minute track, a young voice (possibly Cudi’s daughter) whispers “to be continued” on the LP’s closer.
The voiceover sparked fan speculation about a continuation of the MOTM series. One Twitter user hopped on the app to share their excitement, “WAIT A MINUTE I KNOW HIS DAUGHTER DID NOT SAY TO BE CONTINUED THERES MORE WHAT!?!?!?!?!? @KidCudi #MOTM3 THESE EMOTIONS!!!!.”
“Yeah bro that’s cool and all BUT WHY THE FUCK IS NO ONE TALKING ABOUT HOW IT SAYS TO BE CONTINUED AT THE END OF MOTM3? #MOTM3 @KidCudi,” another Cudi fan tweeted, freaking out about the final moments in Man on the Moon III.
Cudi originally introduced Man on the Moon III as the final installment to the series, “fall back into the world and twisted mind of kid Cudi for the final installment in the Man on the moon trilogy,” he wrote in an Instagram post earlier this week.
But this wouldn’t be the first time the rapper backtracked on something of this nature. Back in 2016, Kudi told Billboard he didn’t feel “obligated to do Man on the Moon 3 anymore.” However, four years he released the coveted project. To add fuel to the fire, Cudi egged on his fans on Twitter, posting their “to be continued” theories on his page. The rhymer went as far as to retweet a fan with a purple devil emoji, indicating that something was coming.
It remains unknown what exactly Kid Cudi is looking to continue, but the rapper has confirmed he has several projects in the works. Kid Cudi’s Entergalatic album and animated Netflix series is rumored to be released in 2021 but has yet to be given an official release date. The Travis Scott and Kid Cudi link-up has been confirmed to be in the works.
