Kid Cudi "King Wizard" Song Review — 5 out of 5 stars

"They'll never take me alive," announces Kid Cudi on "King Wizard", the latest epic from his forthcoming Indicud.
Following up the equally phenomenal "Just what Iam", "King Wizard" is a royal and regal space jam.
Ethereal synths, bells, and keys resound as Cudi quickly fires off a staccato verse punctuated by thought-provoking lines like, "I gave the world my heart, and they gave the kids insight". On the vapors of otherworldly production, his voice pipes through a robotic filter that's utterly transfixing mid-song.
Somewhere between Jim Morrison's psychedelic poetry and Radiohead's alternative elegance, Kid Cudi reigns supreme, and "King Wizard" proves to be the ultimate ruler. This is more groundbreaking music from Cudi, and it only heightens the excitement exponentially for Indicud from our invincible "King".
Do you dig "King Wizard"?
