Whether for good or bad, Kid Cudi has been in and out of the spotlight over the last year; most notably with his recent return to music with Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’. The Ohio born artist continues to hold a strong following across the world with many of his fans/peers citing his work as influential in their own personal lives. His latest album, Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’, is a return to a comfort zone to some, but many also point out the project’s experimental nature. Cudi has always been one to push the boundaries, sometimes to fan’s dismay, but this album feels like the right blend of experimentation and his quintessential sound. This show is all ages and tickets are still available for $40; if you want to avoid the younger crowds you can buy 21+ balcony tickets for $48.

Location: 4746 N Racine Avenue, Chicago When: Tuesday, February 2nd @ 8PM

Kid Cudi took to Twitter earlier today to drop a surprise record titled, “love.” We haven’t heard much from Cudi since his brief Twitter scuffle with Chuck Inglish over a supposedly leaked track, it’s good to see that he’s back working. If you’re a fan of Cudder then you’ll most likely enjoy this song, and you’ll definitely recognize a few of his favorite sounds being used. “love” is a good start for an artist who has receded in recent years, time will tell what’s next for Kid Cudi, we hope this means we’ll see a lot more from him.
Kid Cudi had a rare performance at North Coast Music Festival in Chicago yesterday, which ended in a scary moment. During the remix to “Pursuit of Happiness” Cudi jumped into the photo pit and started signing autographs and greeting fans, in the above video you can clearly see him fall unconscious around the :56 sec mark. There is no clear cause for his loss of consciousness, but the good news is that Cudi later said that he is ok.
In a surprise move, Kid Cudi took to Twitter earlier today to release his highly anticipated project, Satellite Flight: Journey To Mother Moon; without any traditional marketing. The original release date of the album was supposed to be April 29th, but for whatever reason Cudi has decided that the project is ready now. The only way to purchase the album right now is via iTunes, but you can listen to it on YouTube or various other platforms. Peep Cudder’s new sounds below (poor quality) and keep an eye out for the visuals that are sure to follow.
