Up & Away to the Moon: The Cudder

“This is the story of a young man who not only believed in himself but [in] his dreams too. This is the story of the man on the moon.” – This is the closing line to the opening song on Kid Cudi’s album Man on the Moon: The End of Day.

Kid Cudi is a rapper, and there is no doubt about that when you listen to his lyrics: fragments of his life and dreams recited with an unmistakable rhythm. However, I wouldn’t categorize his album as rap or hip-hop, instead I wouldn’t categorize it at all. In his album you can listen to collaborations with electronica group Ratatat, hip-hop artist Kanye West, and alternative group MGMT. But it isn’t the beats and mixes by themselves that make this album so unique, it’s the fact that once you give it a listen you’ll know he’s rapping from his heart, giving reference to his life as a kid and the dreams he’s pursuing no matter what others tell him to do.

This album is so much more than Day n Night or Make her Say, and even though it isn’t particularly upbeat, rest assured that by the end you will be up up and away with a smile on your face.
