It's no secret that I love me some Kid Cudi. I already documented his one-of-a-kind style some time back, but let's focus now on the superb talents that this fly artist has. You've all heard "Make Her Say", and maybe even "Day N Nite" - both fine songs, if I may say so - but I implore you to listen to what I believe is his best track to date, "Soundtrack 2 My Life".
In it, Cudi puts his heart on his sleeve and discusses his experiences and ultimately, the sadness he feels despite his success. The melodrama is wrapped around a sick beat and a can't-get-it-out-of-your-head chorus that just encapsulates the emotion of the whole song. Makes you want to give a man a hug in the end, and perfect for all these gloomy days we're having too.
