Kid Cudi announced that this summer he will release a Dot Da Genius-produced rock album, entitled Wizard and for his rap fans, a mixtape titled, A Man Named Scott.

"Pushing for a summer release of the Wizard album. I produce and play guitar on everything with my main man Dot Da Genius. He's learning bass," The Cudder wrote. "Wizard is a rock album, no raps, just singing. Brand new thing. Flavor. 'Dose of Dopeness,' however, will be on the Wizard album as a bonus jam. 'Bout f---in' time aye. I've been wearing the same jeans for months and I feel good about that dedication."

"Oh I forgot the best news ever ... new mixtape A Man Named Scott," he continued. "That's this summer. For all those who f---s with my raps, this is for you since I'mma be all rocked out with the Wizard sh--. Also, it's free! Yes!"-[MTV News]

No word on whether the "rock" Cudi or the hip hop one will be the focus of the forthcoming show at Roseland on April 20th. Tickets go on 92.3 and Live Nation presales on Wednesday at 10am, and then general sale Friday.
