Scott Mescudi, better know as Kid Cudi was tipped by the music press to within an inch of his life this time last year, but from what we’ve heard so far, it seems someone might finally be able to live up to their relentless hype. Set to release his first full length debut ‘Man on the Moon: The Guardian’ this summer, he has already single handedly injected more credibility into mainstream hip hop than a gizzilion Lil’ Wayne’s could ever dream of doing.
Signed to Kayne West’s label ‘GOOD’ (acronym for “Getting Out Our Dreams”), Kid Kudi is definitely in good company alongside Really Doe, John Legend, Fonzworth Bentley, Common…and erm, Mr. Hudson and The Library.
His latest track ‘I poke her face’ in fact features both Kayne and Common. It’s a four minute gem of track and one that turns the most annoying songs (top 5 at least) of the year into, quite simply, one of the best.
