Kid Cudi – Man On The Moon 2 (ALBUM REVIEW)
Unfortunately for my ego, Cudi needs no introduction. Here’s his sophomore effort. … I only listened once through, and here’s the shabooty review of Man On The Moon II: The Legend Of Mr. Rager.
Scott Mescudi Vs. The World ft. Cee-Lo
First song: Cee-Lo Green is on this track. And Cee-Lo is coming off the heat generated from that Eff You song, so I guess it’s smart to have him on the first track of the album… sorta run of the mill. The beat’s tight, but the rest of it is cliche.
Another song about Cudi being “high” and revolting. Tight production. Prolly KanYe West.
Don’t Play This Song
How you gonna name a song, “Please Don’t Play This Song?” Reminds me of this tweet from Vinny from Jersey Shore: “I’m gonna name my next dog Stay..so i can whistle and say come here Stay …come hereee Stay” lol… Cudi comes with his Bone Thugs fast flow… “chick’s tweet that they miss my meat” lol. From the same visionary that quit twitter because he figured it was going to fail and celebs were LEAVING in droves. What an affected view of reality. The song’s okay… no real on perma-repeat BANGERS, yet.
We Aite (Wake Your Mind Up)
Sounds like a dumb interlude to me saying “we aight” to Emile (one of his producers, weed-carriers).
Another weed song… apparently Cudder and Cage smoke on the regular now. Lol. Yeppers, pretty much a weed love song. This is the 4th longest song out of 17 tracks. That’s how much he loves weed.
Mojo So Dope
First song on the album I’ve actually bobbed my head to [||]… dope. Prolly one of my faves.
Nudder weed s0ng? Sorta hipstery, sorta forgettable.
The single… bored of the song already.
Wild’n Cuz I’m Young
The other song that leaked that I could give a rat’s ass about cause I’m already sick of it.
A song about Cudi hanging with coked out model chicks. I think I have to be coked out to enjoy this song? lol.
Here’s the long awaited song with Cage… Cage said the one that leaked wasn’t finished. Let’s see if it’s diff… just as an aside, this song will make a dude depressed, be wary. Lol not for emo dudes on “the verge”. It does sound different / remastered. Let’s see if there’s an extra Cudi verse. Song stands out on the album, but that just means the other songs suck. I wonder if B00F! A/k/a Shia LaBeouf is going to direct a video for this track. He’s the reason these two even got on with each other (Shia’s a Cage fan and Cudi’s a Shia fan, so they linked up, probably after Cudi read one of my Cage interviews). Anyways, this finished version does sound better, but no extra Cudi verse which I think it needed.
Mr. Rager — another song I had already heard, so I’m already sick of it. Next!
These Worries ft. Mary J. Blige
Some forgettable song with singing on it. Sounds like Mary J Blige is on it — again, that makes it UNFORGETTABLE. Lol. MGD (the beer) > MJB (the singer). Unlistenable when Mary gets on the track. On my 2nd listen, I had to skip this joint.
The End Feat. GLC, Chip Tha Ripper & Nicole Wray
Here’s the solo “down south” track of the album. I’m not down with LCD Rap. LCD chicks yes, LCD rap, not so much! Could do without this song.
Mellow-assed song…I ain’t mad at it. Even though he’s singing again. At least it WORKS this time.
Hmm, this song’s a bit cornay. Sounds like he put it together in five minutes. He sings about being a ghost. Probably almost as bad as the MJB song.
Trapped In My Mind
And the very last song: Let’s just say the first half of the album is better than the second half. Ends on some sour notes.
