Kid Cudi has revealed that he has parted ways with Kanye West's GOOD Music label.

The hip-hopper said that he made the decision to leave the label six months ago but has only just made the news public.

"This is just from a business standpoint. There's no beef. There's no problem with anybody on the label. It's all love," he told Los Angeles radio station Power 106 – via Hollywood Reporter yesterday (April 2).

Kid Cudi will release his third solo album 'Indicud' through Universal Republic/Island on April 22. The album features guest appearances from Haim, Kendrick Lamar, Father John Misty, A$AP Rocky, RZA of Wu Tang Clan and '80s icon Michael Bolton.

Cudi added that Kanye will still be his "big brother forever" and said they recently talked on the phone about "me starting my own direction, and he got it because he’s trying to start his new path and try new things as an artist and he was just like, 'Man, I feel you as an artist. It's cool, whatever.'"

'Indicud' features the single 'Immortal', which samples MGMT's track 'Congratulations'. Scroll down to hear the song.
