Kid Cudi has been enjoying a successful year so far both in music and his budding acting career, garnering the biggest vinyl sales week for a male artist and/or rap album in Nielsen history with Man on the Moon III: The Chosen, while also nabbing starring roles in the genres of horror (X), crime thriller (Crisis), documentary (A Man Named Scott) and even dark comedy (Don’t Look Up).
Now, Cudi plans on combining both words together for his upcoming feature directorial debut, Teddy, which will be co-produced by Jay-Z and be loosely based on the lyrics to a fan-favorite single off his 2009 debut album, Man on the Moon: The End of Day.
The GRAMMY-winning rapper hopped on Instagram yesterday to announce the big news (seen above), alluding to the fact that it’s been a long time in the making. “This year im directing my first feature film “Teddy” at Netflix which I wrote and will also be starring,” Cudi wrote in his extensive caption, also adding, “This is a story I started writing in 2013 because I always wanted to write my own movie, so I said fuck it and started doing it.” [sic]
Read up more on what Teddy, starring and directed by Kid Cudi, will be about below, via the rest of his IG caption:
Given the fact that Kid Cudi’s life over the past few years has been like an open book, particularly with his candid conversations surrounding mental health, a semi-biographical film project made by and starring him sounds pretty amazing so far. We’ll be sure to keep you all updated!
