Scott Mescudi… If you know me, then you know I was destined to feature his new album on Music Monday. I’ve been listening to Cudi since the minute his A Kid Named Cudi mixtape debuted. (Download that for free here)
The new album, entitled Man On The Moon II: The Legend Of Mr. Rager, is part 2 of the Man on the Moon trilogy. Its intended to take us through “the dark and harsh realities of a world filled with temptations beyond our wildest dreams.”
From the album art itself:
When he starts to have trouble adjusting to his new life, our hero Cudder (Mescudi) goes out in search of a brand new thrill destined to become numb to all problems and worries. What he ends up finding is a dangerous new friend The Rager, an unstoppable, self destructive version of himself who won’t rest until Scott is numb for good and he is alive forever. With thunder- ous scene forming production from Emile Haynie, Plain Pat, and Dot Da Genius; be ready to be pulled back into the mind and reality of KiD CuDi. This is the legend of Mr. Rager.
I picked up the Deluxe Version of the album on iTunes last week and (of course) I’ve had it on repeat ever since. Along with 17 great tunes, there’s 2 videos including a 20-minute segment called “Journey of Mr. Rager” that gives you a peek inside the wacky life of Mr. Cudi himself.
A few highlights from the album:
