He renames his upcoming second album 'Man on the Moon II : The Legend of Mr. Rager' and eyes to release it in August.
Kid Cudi has changed title of his sophomore set for the second time. After previously revising it from "Cudder" to "Cudder and The Revolution of Evolution", the rapper is now going to call it with another name "Man on the Moon II : The Legend of Mr. Rager".
"i started making this project like a collab album, filled with fun and upbeat records that for the most part left you with jack s**t when you were finished listening. i took a step back, went on tour, and realized im where im at because of the type of songs i write," he explained his decision in a written statement on his site. "every time i read a comment from someone saying ive touched their lives in some way is what made me want to stop f**king around and continue pouring my life into my music."
"MOTM2 is dark by nature and instead of bringing you into my dreams like my first album, im bringing you into my reality. good and bad. it will explain more of who iam aswell as pushing the envelope musically. this project will focus on many dark, fun, and ignorant moments in my life since ive been kid cudi in a exciting and cinematic nature continuing the MOTM theme."
"This is my darkest work so far with a hint of fun and grooviness for those who like the classic chill cudi sound but elevated to another level. the things i cant speak will be the things i write. before anything else, you'd come to the conclusion i need a shrink, a stronger drug or a mentor. not a hug. a lot of you have read the news and think they know cudi, got some slick shit to say amongst your peers or just flat out hate me but you havnt the slightest clue of who iam. i will tell the story of Mr. Rager..."
Kid Cudi is eying to release the album in August. Confirming he is almost done with the record, the rapper says he is still having "upcoming sessions with Ratatat and Dot Da Genius on the production side."
