KiD CuDi album interview…”Man On The Moon”

KiD CuDi speaks about his upcoming first album, Man On The Moon: The End of the Day. Really profound things said in this interview. I’m telling you, this dude is about to make a classic. He is making that next shit.

What i’m doing is trying to end the segregation between genres…and fusing them together and make one “super-song” so to speak. But just do it in a way that’s appropriate. Not just, (mockingly) “Oh man i want to do a record with ‘this band,’ because it’s a band, and we need to fuse hip hop with alternative rock because that’s ‘the new thing to to.’…No. That’s been done before. What’s the next shit?….
I know alot of people say, “Yo man my album’s going to be crazy, it’s going to be like nothing you’ve ever heard before.” Literally, i’m not lying. It’s the truth. You’re probably going to hear alot of people trying to duplicate these sounds man…I just hope people have an open mind because it’s some next level shit, for real.

I saw in an interview CuDi talking about how he’s making music for people who listen to all types of music. How there is of course people who listen to just acoustic, or just pop, or just soul, or JUST hip hop. But that he makes music for people (like him, sidebar: like me) who listen to all different types of music. To the music that inspires. To the great music being made whatever its medium. This is exactly the artist I’ve been waiting for…which is really fucking exciting as it should be for you if you truly listen to and dig all kinds of music. WOrd Up.

Peace, and great music love. JOIN THE MOVEMENT! END GENRE SEGREGATION!


Kid Cudi…embrace the live

Peep the new stage setup and lights he’s got going on here. I read that he got the lighting guy from the GLow In The Dark Tour. THIS is a real live show…THIS is what hip hop is now. This is one of the reasons Kanye’s changed Hip Hop/music in general. Inspiration! Please take notes.

I’m going to Lollapalooza in Chicago on 8/7 (hit me up if you’ll be there!) and I’ll be seeing this show. I’ll let you know the details late.
Peace, and live love!
