Rapper-turned-rocker Kid Cudi and his long-time friend and go-to producer Dot Da Genius (who are collaborating under the moniker 2 Be Continuum) have released the first song from their forthcoming rock album Wizard. Like Cudi said previously, the rock album will give him a chance to experiment with his desire to produce songs with rock-inspired roots. “Perfect Is The Word” clearly demonstrates a new change in style and sound with an ominous guitar riff in the background and no rapped vocals from the Cleveland rapper.
Fans of Cudi’s traditional rapping need not worry, however. Back in January, he announced to fans via Twitter that a new rap mixtape A Man Named Scott will be released sometime this summer, as soon as he is “all rocked out” with Wizard.
