One2Watch : Kid Cudi


Kid Cudi i hear you say? Well you either know or you don’t. I have been following this breh for a few years now. His ‘Kanye’ inspired swagger is perfect for easy listening and catchy hooks all day long. He bounced on the scene in 2005 with a trail of small cameos and recently shadowed by label (Fools Gold) partners and also up and comers The Cool Kids. But, and i think it was about 4 months ago? I was emailed a track called ‘Day & Night’. I had no idea who it was as it was unnamed and no ID3. Then once i heard the intro i knew it was Cudi and bang! An anthem was born. If you dont have this track its work every penny and you can grab that off iTunes here. For more info watch the small video below.

Now you have a better idea you can grab the mixtape below. I really think this is the direction Hip Hop is going, which in my opinion is backwards and not a day too soon. Taking back Hip Hop to its grass roots can only do it justice. Enough of the Soulja shit and bring back vibes, club bangers and actual lyrics. I will keep you informed of Kid Cudis updates but you can always visit his site here.
