Over the summer, Cleveland’s Kid Cudi announced his upcoming project, Indicud, and gave his fans a reason for optimism with an anthem of a first single. This evening, he brings us the second glimpse into the project with “King Wizard.” Once again showing off his production chops, the moon man creates a simple, but effective, synth melody over which he delivers a confident chanting chorus with his highly expressive voice. He then proceeds to deliver several strong verses, assuring the listener that, despite a brief hiatus from hip-hop, the introspective rapping Cudi hasn’t gone anywhere.
Yesterday, “King Kendrick” was born and today we hear from “King Wizard” in what has already been an awesome week for hip-hop. Indicud is due out later this year and, with two solid releases, may be what many loyal fans have been waiting for. Stream and download this new cut below and let the speculation begin!
