Cudi can make a hell of a hook and make some great shit to zone out too, which he absolutely does on here. I knew he was going to change things and I was so happy to be along for it. I did the same thing over on. We want you to write hooks. However that being said, the highs on this album fucking soared. Also the album is wayyyyy too long.
Imagine, the last thing you want to do is run after a motherfucker like him. That just felt overly artsy and weird. You can hear the heavy Nirvana influence throughout. Almost two-and-a-half years after arriving in New York, Cudi had finally found some sense of stability, a stepping stone that seemed to point in the direction of him realizing his dreams. There was a long ass line going around the corner. Sure, if you pick it out as a single, it doesn't belong on the album.
This song is a smash. Actually my favorite songs even changed for ex my favorite was No More Parties and is now Saint Pablo. You should produce some shit for him. Grade: B+, Favorite Song: Releaser Kids See Ghosts: An absolute masterpiece. Another crucial flaw is that this album is just too long.
After arriving home from Australia, where he performed at packed houses in some cities and near-empty ones in others, Cudi had no job and no guarantee that music would pay off. Maybe a couple duds are in there, but holy shit this album felt like great song after great song. Speedin' bullet is one of those albums that is so raw and emotional, I loved it from jump. I liked this album a good bit. Also enjoyed how emotional he got on certain songs such as Teleport 2 Me, which I read was about an ex. And I would just sit there… and write… and zone out. In September 2008—three-and-a-half years after begging Kanye for a record deal in the Virgin Megastore—Cudi signed to G.
Now I have listened to Cudi before. This album is filled with almost all just okay songs. Go in the booth and lay it down right now! Was a very therapeutic listen as an anxiety sufferer, but also just a good album in general. Also the feature list on this album is great! However, yet again, this album is too long and has some forgettable songs on it. It was a no-brainer: Emile Haynie joined The Kid Cudi Project. His enthusiasm was almost child-like. This album was just shocking to me, it felt like a child who makes some pretty good grades usually come home with an F on their report card.
This album lacks a bit lyrically though. This album was pretty fucking bad. This album should have definitely had a few tracks cut. However, I decided to completely forget my prior love to certain songs and just go into this freshman. Or any career prospects at all.
I really wanna be signed. It really feels like a new beginning for Cudi and shows off a much happier mindset, which is incredible to see after 10 years of pretty hard hitting subject matter. You guys can still work on your music. It is one of those tapes, like a ton of other Cudi stuff, that I feel would fit in better in this day and age then it ddI when it released 2007 I believe. Deep marketing manager who proposed the A Kid Named Cudi collaboration, recalls the buzz around the party.
The years since A Kid Named Cudi have been marred by drug problems and legal troubles, scuffles with fans and beef with other rappers including, briefly, Kanye , creative misfires and retirement threats. As you said, theres an overarching narrative to all the albums he's released that this one doesn't allow for. Grade: B-, Favorite Song: Teleport 2 Me, Jamie Indicud: I really liked this one. Anyway, that being said this album has some truly amazing songs. So when the daylight went, it was a wrap. The lonely stoner had struck gold.
Inspired by loneliness and job struggles, Ratatat and , a strained relationship with his uncle who in May that year and the best strains he could get his hands on in East New York, Cudi wrote a hook and melody that he presented to Dot down the hall. But what Emile who was only slightly easier to track down than Cudi and Pat does remember is the magical energy of those sessions in his studio on Broadway and Spring. I feel like it is a misunderstood project. It was just Cudi and his friends making songs and hoping that people would like it. When reading about this album I read it had a 50 on Metacritic, which is pretty shocking to me, as I actually did enjoy it. What the fuck am I gonna do? We went on to make two more full albums together but A Kid Named Cudi is the one I look back on with the most fondness.
