New: Kid Cudi – “Capcom”

The latest Kid Cudi track, entitled “Capcom”, is a nod to the Cleveland rapper’s videogame love, featuring a wild beat that is no doubt inspired by gaming soundtracks everywhere. Cudi goes all out, declaring his intention to take on the world in the chorus. According to Cudi, the song was recorded early last year for a Street Fighter game. It’s safe to say that this song will not appear on his upcoming summer mixtape A Man Named Scott or his rock album Wizard. Check out the song, as well as Cudi’s thoughts about it below.

“The song in which the world has titled “capcom” was done early last year for a project chad hugo and kenna were working on for a Street Fighter game and they reached out and asked me to be a part of it. This was a demo reference and i never really got to rework my verses or see the project through. Its old and isnt of my discography. I have a new jam im releasing soon and it will be current freshness. Stay tuned.”
