Music). This time out, the lonely stoner opens up about getting hooked on antidepressant medications.

"I took a trip on antidepressant lane for a little bit," he says. "After the WZRD song 'Dr. Pill' everyone thought I was talking about molly or ecstasy. But I’m talking about prescription meds. I had just gotten a shrink. I was having an emotional breakdown with this breakup. I kept trying different pills for five months. It f---ed me up. They weren’t working. It was every side effect on the bottle. I couldn’t f---."

The full cover story with Cudi is available online now and at newsstands February 4. Rihanna is featured on the magazine's trademark second cover. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
