Label: G.O.O.D. Music / Universal Motown
Release Date: September 15, 2009

Hailing from Cleveland, albeit quite possibly Regions Unknown… Scott Mescudi a.k.a. KiD CuDi has delivered a high octane ambient-electro-funk themed album with Man On The Moon. Coined a Kanye West protege, the Cudder takes the listener on a journey through genre bending. Seemingly one part pop, one part rap, one part techno, he is an atypical performer with solid lyrics and high end production. Day N’ Nite was released as a single and blew up globally (reaching the Top 10 on the Billboard 100), yet its not anywhere close to the best track on the album. After working at New York Bape and releasing a mix tape, Kanye West jumped at the opportunity to sign him to his G.O.O.D Music label (Getting Out Our Dreams). Emotional roller-coasters over A+ bumps equals a sublime effort that must be heard.
