Known for his nonchalance and dissolute life, Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi (aka Kid Cudi) is now becoming a serious, dedicated and farsighted man. He says his recent paternity has changed his view of life and, consequently, his work. This might explain why, a few days before the release of his second album, Kid Cudi is already thinking of how to approach his third one. At the listening party of “Man On The Moon II: The Legend Of Mr. Rager”, Cudi revealed he’s got three new songs for that third release, one which apparently will see a change of register: now Cudi wants to play guitar and play with a rock band, more or less like he does in this video for “Erase Me”. Cudi said: “Our band is called Wizard! We’re starting to record on the tour bus. We’ll be doing college runs. I’m learning to play the guitar, that’s my new love. I never thought I could play an instrument. I always downplayed that shit.” In a statement to MTV, Cudi justified his growing lack of interest in hip-hop by saying he’s no longer getting any kind of personal satisfaction from rapping and that now he’s enjoying singing and looking for catchy pop melodies.
In any case, and provided Cudi doesn’t change plans, it’ll take a while for the rock album by Wizards to be released. But remember that his second long player “Man On The Moon II: The Legend Of Mr. Rager”, will hot stores on 9th November with the tracklist and cover art you’ll find below.
