It’s looking like a big summer for Kid Cudi. The hip hop superstar is planning to release a new album this summer called Wizard – on which he’ll “produce and play guitar on everything” and collaborate with his longtime producer Dot da Genius. “Wizard is a rock album, no raps, just singing. Brand new thing,” Cudi tweeted.

With his hip hop career, Cudi said he’s working on material with Kanye and Jay-Z, and plans to release a free mixtape called A Man Named Scott (i.e. Cudi, whose real name is Scott Mescudi), also due this summer. Further, Cudi said he’ll reprise his role on HBO’s How To Make It In America, the half-hour show that follows a pack of hipsters in New York City and Brooklyn, and that the show will air this summer.
