Kid Cudi hit fans with a surprise release of his newest project, Satellite Flight, yesterday at midnight. The album, which was initially meant to be an EP, hosts 10-tracks and features Raphael Saadiq. Despite catching fans off guard, the surprise release is in line with Cudi's mysterious presence, avoding all of the gimmicks of media and relying on the art to shape the opinion of the public. With that in mind we asked Complex's Director of Strategy, Joe La Puma, to weigh in on the album's release, offer up his insider knowledge, and speculate on Cudi's immediate future.
