With minor set backs, the time is now here for the release of Kid Cudi’s sixth studio album, Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’.
Originally, the album was set to release back in September but “due to some minor sample clearances still being finalized,” Cudi took to twitter to explain the delay of his album.
About two weeks ago, Cudi released his album cover and the revealed the release date of Dec. 16th for the digital album and Dec. 23rd for the physical.
Between the flop of Cudi’s fifth studio album Speedin’ Bullet 2 Heaven, Twitter rants, industry beefs, and an unexpected trip to rehab, it has been one hell of a year for Mr. Mescudi.
But not everything that happened for Cudi this year was a negative. Back in February, Cudi made an appearance on Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo’s single “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1.” The song made Billboard Hot 100 at No. 37, which was the third highest position for Cudi behind “Day N Night” and “Erase Me.”
While still in rehab, Travis Scott dropped their collab, “Through the Late Night,” and in November, once out of rehab Cudi and Travis Scoot performed another collaboration “Baptized in Fire” at ComplexCon.
Cudi has already released two singles “Surfin’” (feat. Pharrell Williams) and “The Frequency” from Pain, Passion & Demon Slayin’. We will also hear features from Williow Smith, Andre 3000, and Travis Scott.
- “Swim in the Light”
- “By Design” featuring André 3000
- “All In”
- “Rose Golden” featuring Willow Smith
- “Baptized in Fire” featuring Travis Scott
- “Flight at First Sight/ Advanced” featuring Pharrell Williams
- “Does It”

Now the time is finally here Pain, Passion & Demon Slayin’. Once you listen to the album, come back and tell us your thoughts.
