Kid Cudi - A Kid Named Cudi Mixtape

Coming straight out of the dungeons of rap in Cleveland, Kid Cudi totally shouldn't work on paper but somehow does. Picture a second-rate John Legend doing a duet album with a second-rate Lupe Fiasco, produced by Spank Rock and you're in the neighborhood. Lyrics are eh, but holy shit what beats. His LP drops later this year, can't wait for it.

Does It Offend You, Yeah?

I'm not really into the electronic scene, but this shit is awesome. Real bass heavy synth with a good mix of beats - not just the same static trance groove over and over again. Flashes of Daft Punk and Justice here and there, but overall its a more of Bloc Party on E sound (probly why I like it). Its a solid debut. Link on the title.

For all of you looking for the new Nas album and were disappointed by Brandon's post -- it's because the one below is part album part mixtape... check out this link to get the official 'Untitled' or just click on the title of this post

New Hotness

Bounces between legendary and mediocre from track to track, mostly because of the beats. Could've been a blistering 10-12 track album, but gets real diluted towards the end. That being said, its easily his best album since God's Son.


Seems to take cues from "In Rainbows" with the stripped-down feel and abbreviated tracklist. Dangermouse brings an interesting psychedelic edge to his sound, with the end result being somewhere between "Sea Change" and "Guero". Very good, and too short.
