Kid Cudi launched his debut studio album Man on the Moon: The End of Day 12 years in the past and it still holds up as an influential album to the present sound hip-hop has adopted at this time.

Cudi took to social media on Tuesday night to uplift his pivotal physique of labor when followers started mentioning its low rating on Pitchfork’s score scale.

“Pitchfork has never givin me good ratings, and here we are, years later and im still here. Its ok man. They dont need to change it,” Cudi wrote in response to a fan’s tweet speaking about the album’s rating. “The entire world knows, even my haters, that this album was the one that changed hip hop forever.”

Pitchfork just lately revealed an inventory of albums that they determined to rescore from the past, and some Cudi followers were upset that Man On The Moon was not considered one of them. The rapper responded to a different fan who requested if getting low scores on his albums ever impacted him, to which he replied that his longevity had remedied these anxieties.

Cudi also jokingly replied to others who identified that the cartoon Peppa Pig’s children album had a better rating than MOTM. 

Some of the albums that Pitchfork rescored on their record included Chief Keef’s Back From The Dead, Prince’s Musicology, Daft Punk’s Discovery, Lana Del Rey’s Born to Die, and more.
