The comeback kid
The Kid is back- finally! Kid Cudi had told us in early June that he was working on one album, and then he announced that he was working on another project simultaneously! The plan is to release the both of them before the year ends, and it looks like he will meet that deadline! One album is titled Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’ and the second one remains unnamed. The first one will come out this month and the latter will drop in the fall!
None of us know what’s up, where he’s at, or what he’s doing, but what we do know is that he posted on Twitter a humorous image to accompany a cute caption to announce that he’s finished working on his albums, and that they are complete! You can see the tweet below that the Speedin’ Bullet 2 Heaven artist put up last night. It is of Usain Bolt, Olympic runner mid-saunter and then below it is the caption “Albums finished😌🌹.” A satisfied emoji face and a rose. Guess he is happy with the results! We also learned two months ago that the album would have some guest appearances from Pharrell Williams (who had made a few tweets about being excited to work with Mr. Rager), Travi$ Scott, and Dot Da Genius (aka Jhené Aiko’s husband).
Cudi has been known for some incredible releases in the past with his monotonous yet energetic vocals on top of deep-bass-heavy beats and haunting instrumentals. In one way, I would like to compare him to a more ominous version of Frank Ocean. Someone we also have not heard from in a while. Main difference? AT LEAST CUDI SPEAKS TO US AND LETS US KNOW STUFF AND USES SOCIAL MEDIA.
Stay updated with the artist via his social channels and find out when his first album drops, followed by the second! 🙂
