Who is Mr.Rager?
Kid Cudi is due to release his second studio album on November 9, titled " Man on the Moon II : The Legend of Mr.Rager. The album features the likes of Mary J. Blidge, Kanye West and Nicole Wray which all deliver great vibes on each track. The album was broken up into four parts, each portraying a different side of Cudi. The buzz over the album started back in June when the song "Erase Me" featuring Kanye West was debuted over a Cleveland Radio station. Everything since the songs release has prooved to be timeless, the introduction was a great flashback towards Cudi's Moon Man theme. Scott Mescudi vs. the World was the first song featuring Cee-Lo Green, I found it dope and real nonchalant. The recent news about Cudi's cocaine habits haven't really belittled his music, if anything its made it more felt. In the song, "Mojo So Dope" he said "Damn you must understand what I'm speaking about songs Is how I really am, Yeah! This is how I really think you can see what I see I really think" as if he managed to give you his eyes for a second.
As the album played on I noticed the trance Cudi kept on each song. The flow was as if he were taking you on a trip, pretty cool shit. A real heartfelt track I loved was, "All Alone" which was just him speaking of going the distance and facing your encounters by yourself. Kanye West has even gone as far to say that Kid Cudi is one of his favorite artist, despite the fact he's on his GOOD Music Label. There was a definite drug influence endowed in the album along with a alcoholic presence, which was most famously seen on WSHH. The song "Marijuana" spoke for itself, he definitely caught the essence of the pleasant addiction. The the comedic lyrics of the popular, "Ashin' Kusher" made them both my favorite songs making them an iPod must; Trust Me! The mystery behind the album was the production by Emile whom I've never heard of. The good thing about Kid Cudi is that no matter where he is, he takes it upon himself to be himself. Who is Mr.Rager? Take a listen and find out. Check out this twenty minute documentary behind the making of "Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr.Rager".
