Kid Cudi is an interesting character, who has – as of late – proven himself to truly be “all about the music.” He rose to fame as a XXL Freshman, after dropping his hit-single Day N’ Night. He’s constantly, since day one, been on the cusp of genre blending innovation, hinting at a collaborative project with electronic rock duo Ratatat, well before his debut album even dropped. His creative swag undeniable wiped off on many artists, including self-appointed rap-messiah Yeezus, amongst others. His latest album, Speeding’ Bullet To Heaven, has seen Cudi take a further departure from what fans may have wanted, to deliver an experimental experience described as “a cross between the Cudi of old and Nirvana with dark lyrics that touch on suicide and self-worth.” It’s worth a spin for fans.
Last month, Kid Cudi announced that his “Especial” tour would be canceled. He went to Twitter to say: “I got a lot I’m dealing with at this time in my personal life too, and for the shows to be the best experience possible as well as keeping my sanity intact, I need to regroup, I have to.”
But that hasn’t stopped him from dedicating himself to his core fans. Last Saturday he decided to invite his fans to the screening of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie in Glendale California. Cudi is a big Star Wars fan – and all the fans that showed up received a piece of Cudi merch and got to see the movie for free. So to all the Kid Cudi fans watch out for him coming to your city, he said he might continue the fun around the country.
Cudi’s journey into the experimental territory is not going to stop anytime soon. In fact, when talking about Man On The Moon 3, he said: “…if you don’t like what I’m doing now, please abort the train. Do not buy my music from here on out. It’s not for you. No hard feelings.” Hold on, it’s going to be a wild ride!
