Kid Cudi has been on a musical hiatus for a while now. The rapper, however, turned to Twitter to share with his 1.2 million fans his funeral wishes.
Throughout the scribbled poem we learn that Cudi wants a closed casket ceremony, with the casket being 100% rose gold plated. He wants people to be dancing and celebrating his life, rather than being sad.
Cudi would also prefer if his fans had a separate funeral to give his family space and privacy to mourn.
Lastly, Cudi said that he’d like to be buried next to his father, unless there is barely anything left of him, in which case he wishes to be cremated.
Here’s a clearer version of Cudi’s wishes:
My casket needs to be 100% rose gold plated
I wanna be in my ripped Levi’s jeans and my Incesticide Nirvana
T shirt with my Converse
Don’t cut my hair
No matter what keep the casket closed
Send my body to space to be buried on the moon or
Sent through a wormhole with all my music
and my story on a jump drive, if possible.
Upon my death, all rivalries are deaded.
Dance and celebrate, no sadness
Let my fans have a separate funeral for me so my
family can mourn privately
Cremation if there’s barely anything left of me,
or else dig up my dad’s body and bury us together
wherever my mom sees fit. funeral must be “
Cudi predicted that many would assume the poem was lyrics from a song, so he decided to clear the air shortly after posting the poem.
