From the “Journey of the Rager”, directed/shot/edited by Jason Goldwatch and which is included in the MOTMII Deluxe Edition CD-DVD.
Here is the official trailer for Cudi’s new cut. Sorry for all the videos, but new tracks are coming. It’s a pretty weird trailer, but that’s what we’ve been getting from Cudi lately. Album is set to drop a week from tomorrow.
At this point, I’d say I’m more looking forward to listening to the next Gucci Mane album than Man On The Moon II. It seems like Cudi is just recycling his old beats and phoning in performances like he’s Vince Carter. However, May J Blige does do some work on the hook. Download below…

Could there be a better title for a song? This one is from “Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager”. Cudi tries to hard to perfect a weed smoking song. This song seems pretty pointless. Download anyways below.
Oh yea, those words up there in the title were actually spoken in an interview with rapper Sean Price.
If you got Sean Price in your playlist and Kid Cud in the same playlist you need to uh don’t be my fan no more…Get outta here. Matter fact, if you’re a Kid Cud fan kill yourself. That’s all I got to say about that.
Very strong words from Price, and while I may not agree with the severity of them, I have to say that I would have a hard time saying that Cudi has been on his game recently. It seems that all that we hear out of him is news about altercations with fans and drugs and police, while Price fills our newsfeeds with mixtapes and public appearances. However, I will withhold judgement until if Man On The Moon II ever comes out.
Hip Hop DX reports that G.O.O.D day has officially been pushed back. Cudi pushing back Man On The Moon II was the first domino to fall, and then soon came Pusha T’s new mixtpae and now Kanye’s Dark Twisted Fantasy. Big Sean is the only one still on track, and that’s certainly a good thing with all the fire he’s been putting out lately. Check out this new leak called “Forever Reppin“.
A live version of this Kanye-produced track off of Cudi’s upcoming Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager surfaced back in June, and now the studio version has finally leaked. I must say I’m feeling this song a lot, I bumped the shit out of the live version and the real track sounds great. Hope to see more of these types of songs (along with All Talk & Mojo So Dope) on Man on the Moon II, because some of the other leaked material (REFOFEV, Erase Me) isn’t really cutting it.

Alright so this is gonna be mostly just a follow up on a few earlier posts Ive written. First up, new music from J. Cole, potentially off of his upcoming debut LP Cole World, its called “Problems” and you can download it here. Next up is a follow up to the piece I wrote last week on the future of Kid Cudi. Cudi dropped what is presumably going to be the next single on his now delayed (scheduled for an October release-fuck G.O.O.D. music day) second album, Man On the Moon II: The Legend Of Mr. Rager. It’s entitled “Mojo So Dope” and it really just sounds as if the emotion is forcibly depressed. As I usually say, there is worse stuff out there, but I definitely expect more from Cudder (check it here). Last ups, Lupe fiasco has responded to the claims made against him by former producer Prolyfic (as I discussed in this week’s Hatin on Mondays). The comments were shared courtesy of Hip Hop DX, and in short Lupe essentially that remarked that Prolyfic was no longer a part of his life, and therefore did not know anything about him or his album. Again, as much as I love lupe, can’t say I side with him on this one.
On an unrelated note, this blog has really been blowing up lately and I want to thank everyone out there who’s been reading. When Dan and I started this blog almost four weeks ago, we never could have dreamed that we would reach 250 views in a single day like we did yesterday. Anyways, keep up the support, follow us on twitter (@allmyheadmusic) and become a fan on facebook.
As the clock counts down to G.O.O.D. music day (September 14), the hype is slowly building for the much anticipated follow-up album by Clevelands Scot “KiD CuDi” Mescudi, Man On The Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager. Unfortunately at the time we only have 2 tracks from the album (REVOFEV and Erase Me) but i think that these 2 tracks, along with his first album, really signify something important from CuDi: We will probably never see anything like A Kid Named CuDi ever again. The debut piece of work from Cudi, this mixtape features all of my top Cudi songs (not much considering he only has that and 1 album to choose from), but nonetheless it’s hard to top bangers like “Man On The Moon” and “Cleveland is the Reason”. While I loved Man On the Moon: The End of the Day, something about it (with the exception of a couple of songs) just didn’t feel as unique and interesting as the critically acclaimed mixtape.
While there’s nothing wrong with a lot of the Kanye beats featured on a lot of the album’s tracks, I just feel that the Plain Pat produced, bass-heavy stoner-jam beats on the mixtape really capture what really makes Kid Cudi so great. In a time when most rappers are just trying to rap about how much better they are than you, Cudi spends his time letting you explore the depth’s of his mind and sharing the crazy thoughts inside his head. And that’s what gets me to the point of this post; while I hoped that Man on the Moon II might return to some of that darkness, instead we just got a Kanye featured summer club jam and a lighthearted simplistic “REVOFEV”. Not to say these songs aren’t enjoyable, but similar to the seemingly eternal halt of Lupe Fiasco’s career or the death of Big L and Biggie, it just makes you wonder what we could’ve had if talent had been used differently.
Listen to that and tell me there’s anyone else in rap putting together rhymes, beats, flows, lyrics or really anything like that. Incredible.
Alright time for some new stuff, I got really excited about this new stuff cause it comes from some of my favorites. First up is a new track from Kid Cudi. Even though I hated his last song (the first release from Man on The Moon II-, REVOFEV), this is definitely an improvement. Its called Erase Me, although were not sure if this is gonna me on his next album, I’d have to guess that it is seeing that Kanye makes an appearance on it (and a good one at that). I love this song, it’s definitely a lot more A Kid Named CuDi-esque and definitely worth checking out.
The next set of stuff I got actually leaked yesterday, but its fire nonetheless. The first one is a remix of a Rick Ross song, super high. Its called the sativa remix and it features Wiz Khalifa and Curren$y. Its definitely download worthy, especially since Wiz and Curren$y is such an ill combo-download link Here. The next track I got is Curren$y featuring none other than Mikey Rocks of the Cool Kids (If you’re unaware of my stance on The Cool Kids, check out the first post on this blog). Anyways, it’s called The Hangover, and its apparently gonna be a single on Pilot Talk, Curren$y’s first album (artwork below, its sickkk) which drops in a few weeks.
Enjoy the music, more to come.
