Kid Cudi, Grammy Award winner, producer, song writer, acclaimed actor and one of hip hop’s most challenging and consistently innovative artists returned, with his highly anticipated third studio album, “Indicud” on April 15th. ‘Girls’, the forthcoming single featuring Too $hort is released on May 6th. “Indicud”, the follow up to 2010’s “Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager” comes loaded with features from the cream of today’s hottest artists, including A$AP Rocky and Haim. On ‘Solo Dollo Part II’ Cudi enlists the skills of hip hop heavyweight Kendrick Lamar, giving a new twist to part one, ‘Solo Dolo’, from his 2009 debut album “Man on the Moon: The End of Day”. Over the course of the album, Cudi expands his hip hop galaxy through mystical production, colourful soundscapes, and airtight rhyming. In less than 24 hours of going live, “Indicud” stormed up the US iTunes album charts, showing as the highest charting pre order on both the main album & hip hop album charts (#6 & #2 respectively). Cudi took to the internet to announce his latest project; trending on Twitter three times after leaking album track “Immortal”, and then took to Twitter again to reveal his self-designed album artwork and track-listing, all before an incredible performance on Jimmy Kimmel, watch it here. Backpackers and bloggers immediately jumped on Cudi back in 2008, as Kanye West proclaimed fandom online. West signed him to G.O.O.D. Music and enlisted Cudi for songwriting on "Heartless" and "Paranoid" from “808s & Heartbreak” as well as a cameo on "Welcome to Heartbreak". However, everything changed with the release of his official debut single "Day 'n' Nite". Always raising the bar and experimenting, “Indicud” comes fresh from the release of “WZRD”, an alternative rock project with Dot Da Genius, and his incredible feature on the G.O.O.D Music album “Cruel Summer” in 2012.
