KiD CuDi found himself in handcuffs yesterday in Los Angeles after the LAPD mistook him and his crew for burglary suspects as they left a photoshoot with NME on Melrose Ave. Five patrol cars rolled up on the entourage and temporarily detained them before the cops realized that they were racially profiling wrong. After the incident, CuDi explained to NME that he wasn’t sure what happened.
“Who knows, really, the story changed a bunch,” he said. “I’m just happy to be back. I’m a free man! For that moment I was not free. I was in handcuffs. It did not feel very comfortable.”
He added that he did not begrudge the police for the error: “We’re in LA, it’s a rowdy place in the United States, you know? And a lot of shit goes down. And these cops have to use force. So it’s, like, I understand that they were doing their job. I just wish we weren’t in that place at that time.” #ShoutOuts NahRight

On opening up to his fans
I do, but I can’t give my whole life to my fans. Then the mystique is gone. If you know everything about someone, why would you continue to pursue that person?….that’s a part of any artistry. There has to be a mystique. In order for women to want me and kids to think I’m the coolest and men to want to be me, there has to be something about me that’s ‘wow.’ If you get rid of the ‘wow’ who cares?
On D’Angelo’s “Untitled” and being compared to D’Angelo
That’s the moment he became a sex symbol. Do we know the moment I became a sex symbol? No. There’s no significant moment where that happened for me. And there’s nothing that I really… maybe when I cut my hair, I don’t know. But for me, it’s never been something we chased after. The album cover was just showing the new me, showing that I’ve been working out, showing my hair is cut. If you look inside the packaging it’s showing the other side of the evolution where my suits are tailored, where — things of that nature — so, I don’t know if I would compare myself to D’Angelo in that way. But I definitely feel it. I definitely feel the sex symbol status. #ShoutOut NecoleBitchie
