The beloved Brooklyn-based hip-hop guardian spirit originating out of Cleveland, Ohio has indeed shocked his distinctly dedicated fan base by exploring a new experimental approach throughout the emotive release of his fifth studio album, ‘Speedin Bullet 2 Heaven’. Kid Cudi lit up intergalactic hearts and pipes jam-packed with maui wowie the moment lonely stoners began to free their minds at night over the hypnotic sounds of Cudi’s 2008 first full length studio album release, ‘Man on the Moon: The End of Day’, which exhibited a Billboard Hot 100 single that cut the first turf along the field of dreams for a seemingly supernatural egghead.
The skinny jeans, vans kicks and wayfarer glasses wearin’ earth dweller instantaneously astonished flannel rockin’ hipsters dreaming life away and flocking like a swarm of bees toward the simultaneous melancholic conscious tip and idyllic album themes brimming with ethereal dreams swarming within the medulla of a man who progressively matured in the thick of his craft.
The dark mind of Scott Mescudi expressed that ‘Speedin’ Bullet 2 Heaven’ was dedicated to human beings undergoing excruciating distress due to the pangs of mental illness, but the unequivocally explicative album travels down the hallways of Mr. Mescudi’s distressed mind in a manner that showcases the downside of superstardom in an such a bare-faced, introspective manner that has left Cudi’s cult-like following pondering if the great breadth of the man on the moon’s view has taken on an eternally gloomy hue.
Despite the obvious fact that the troubled boy with the heart of a lion is no longer looking high and low along on the pursuit of happiness, it is imperative that dogmatic fans wake their minds up and acknowledge the considerable personal accountability on Cudi’s end throughout the exposition of his innermost, sinister troubles currently trapped within his being along rugged, unexplored rhythmical terrain. Kid Cudi is gazing beyond the perimeter of commercial success, common sequels and his double-dealing alleged equals; respect that.
