Speedin' Bullet to Heaven — the new, decidedly featureless album from Kid Cudi — is coming "really, really soon" and the world will surely be better for it. As true aficionados know, Cudi is an active voice on Twitter — regularly engaging with fans and fellow artists alike. Early Sunday morning, Cudi tweeted a picture of a handwritten note which many assumed was simply excerpted lyrics from a Speedin' Bullet to Heaven track:
However, Cudi immediately responded to such assumptions with a clarification:
Regardless, the note in question is a fascinating glimpse into the mind of an artist considering his eventual demise and ensuing legacy. In this atypical poem of sorts, Cudi outlines plans for his own funeral — calling for a "celebration" across two separate funerals for his fans and family, respectively. Song, poem, or otherwise — such candid, honest commentary on the self is rarely expressed on such a public scale. Thus, Cudi's note is truly something to respect. Speedin' Bullet to Heaven couldn't come soon enough.
