Mike Dean Says He Was Removed From Kid Cudi’s Moon Man’s Landing Festival Lineup
We are still over a month away from Kid Cudi's first festival, which will now be sans Mike Dean, according to the Grammy-winning producer. On Wednesday (Aug. 3), Dean made the annoucement to fans on Twitter.
"Looks like I won’t be playing moon man’s landing this year," he tweeted. "Someone cancelled me. Lol. Thanks. That’s all. #immature."
Mike Dean, a frequent collaborator with Cudi nemesis Kanye West, provided more context in follow-up tweets. When asked if he was "cancel culture canceled," Dean shot down the notion.
"lol. No one can cancel me like that! Just some baby kid baby shit," he responded.
"Did he cancel the whole deal or did he really just throw you off the lineup??? cause I was coming to see you and Push," another fan queried.
"Just me. Weirdos," Dean replied.
"What sucks is I canceled a mike dean solo show in la to play this," he added.
Other fans surmised it was Mike Dean's previous comments about South Korean boy band BTS that got him pulled.
"It was a joke. Lol," Dean replied to that hypothesis.
"Lmao wasn’t he just crying because kanye did this to him over pete? how hypocritical," one post reads.
"Mike dean >>> Kid cudi," another liked posts says.
XXL has reached out to Kid Cudi's team and the festival's promotors for comment.
