WZRD – Kid Cudi & Dot Da Genius
Kid Cudi had never strayed far from standing up for what he believes in. Whether it’s his music or his opinions on fellow artists, Cudi speaks with a passion once reserved for Kerouac’s misfits. So when it came to his and longtime collaborator/friend Dot Da Genius’ collaboration album WZRD, Cudi made it clear: They were going to do it under their terms. Fortunately, for all of us, their vision is filled with melodic guitar riffs, bass-laced production and catchy hooks. Known for his experimentation, Cudi’s attempt at an alternative album is far more successful than most of his contemporary peers. Goodbye Kanye, hello Kurt. Scott Mescudi and his partner-in-music Dot have the formula to make hip hop rock – and roll.
