The Top Rap Albums of 2013: Kid Cudi
Wed, 11 Dec 2013 10:57:13
Kid Cudi once again took hip-hop to a galaxy far, far away on Indicud.
In fact, the latest offering from rap's resident Man on the Moon skyrocketed to new heights, elevating the genre in the process. On the airy declaration "Unfuckwittable", Cudi appropriately describes himself with a potent hook, and Father John Misty adds a lithe falsetto to the multi-hued "Young Lady"—the finest intergalactic love jam ever. Haim helps Cudi take off on the soulfully spacey "Red Eye", which stands out as dynamic and divine. "King Wizard" and "Immortal" see the MC flaunt that undeniable flow that sees "The Force" grow even stronger in him. Michael Bolton even stops by for a spirited cameo on "Afterwards (Bring Yo Friends)". As a whole, Indicud unfurls like a timeless film. It runs an entire emotional spectrum, and it shows what hip-hop can be capable of when boundaries are smashed.
Indicud is the future...
