shiftmeets - Kid Cudi
In 2008 Kid released his first official full-length project, a mixtape titled A Kid Named Cudi. His debut single "Day 'n' Nite” reached the top five of the Billboard charts and the project caught the attention of KanyeWest.
On the back of this success, he went on to work with the likes of JayZ, Mary J. Blige, David Guetta, MGMT, SnoopDogg and Michael Bolton.
Kid has traversed many genres of music in his career. In 2015 he released an alternative rock-inspired album, Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven, in which he sang and played instruments throughout. He returned to rapping on March 25, 2016, with the release of "The Frequency".
In the same year came the studio album, Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’, which featured guest appearances from André3000, PharrellWilliams and Travis Scott. Last year, he and Kanye dropped their highly-anticipated See Ghosts album.
The pair have been frequent collaborators, with their experimental styles combining in this album to draw from alternative rock tones and bringing back elements of Cudder’s classic G.O.O.D. Music discography.
The rapper/actor has now confirmed that a new album called Entergalactic is in the works. The album was linked to another project; Kid and Black-Ish creator Kenya Barris have collaborated on a new adult-focused animated series, which will be named after the upcoming album.
Although Entergalactic doesn’t have a release date, the Netflix series will showcase music from Cudi’s new album. The series will follow “a man on his journey to discover love,” with Barris and Cudi writing, starring and executive producing the series.
