Playlist: Kid Cudi

Kid Cudi just wants to rock.
Cleveland's "lonely stoner" loves a good rock song—indie or otherwise. His playlist is practically a who's who of popular and up-and-coming bands. It's way more Pitchfork than Vibe, but it's just another Kid Cudi curveball. He's one of the best new rappers on the scene, and he's constantly rocking out. It's all part of this space man's legend though.
Kid Cudi shared his playlist with ARTISTdirect.com editor Rick Florino in this exclusive feature. Check it out below!
Kid Cudi's Playlist:
1. Kid Cudi — Man On the Moon: The End of Day
Damn, I really can't stop listening to my own album to be honest [Laughs]. I really made this album for me first, and I hope that other people like it.
I'm always into MGMT.
3. Lykke Li
I'm always listening to Lykke Li.
RATATAT is still on my playlist of course.
5. Animal Collective
I'm very selective about what I get into. Animal Collective, I just got familiar with them a couple months ago, and I've been jamming to them. I've got my ear to the streets.
6. Kings of Leon
I like Kings of Leon. They're awesome! Their album is dope because I like the single but there are other songs that are just as good on the album, than just the single. I love constantly discovering new artists, getting their album and realizing they have more shit to offer.
