Kid Cudi is doing his due dilligence. Recently the rapper and his crew visited the memorial site to rock legend Kurt Cobain in Viretta Park in WA paying his respects to the late singer. Kudi, who’s been no stranger as a fan of Rock music, is on the cusp of putting together his first rock album on his next project.
The “Day N Nite” star has been transcending the lines of rap music with each new release, and on his latest song, Cudi goes for a distinctively dark rock feel. He is especially proud of the fact that he was able to play the guitar on the track and deliver something worth recording. “It’s just some people who are very one-track minded. The world that I am coming from, hip-hop, is so regurgitated and repetitive that some people are used to that and they don’t want change, they don’t like change,” Cudi maintained. “And I get that, that’s cool. Luckily for me, I’m confident in myself as an artist where I can do what I want, and as long as I’m cool with it, I’m cool with it.”
“Perfect Is the Word” is the first track from Cudi and Dot Da Genius’ upcoming Wizard album, and while the song is different, it isn’t the only change that the musician has exhibited this year. In February, the G.O.O.D. Music artist took to Twitter to announce that he was leaving the Dream On label, which he launched back in 2009 with partners Patrick “Plain Pat” Reynolds and producer Emile Haynie. He also assured fans that he was still with Kayne West’s G.O.O.D. Music.
