I’m not the one to usually post snippets since I normally wait to hear the complete body of work, but I ended up taking a listen to the snippets from Cudi’s new album this time around. After listening through the quick 30 second previews I thought I had to throw them up to stream given the quality of the music Cudi delivered and the immense anticipation surrounding Kid Cudi’s new album INDICUD. Take a peak at what Cudi’s new album will sound like below and be sure to purchase INDICUD on April 24th. Hit the jump to check out the tracklist while listening.

Maimi production duo, Urban Noize, remixed Kendrick Lamar collaboration with Young Jeezy, “Westside, Right On Time.” Urban Noize adds a western theme to the remix on the production end making “Westside, Right On Time” sound as good as new. The “Wild West” sound is definitely not what I expected when pressing play, but it still is a smooth remix. Stream/download Urban Noize’s remix below.

Despite being a second semester senior, I am up at around midnight with mountains of homework that for some reason I intend to do. But the gods are smiling down on me tonight because that kid from Cleveland hit us with a new song. “Girls” features the same otherworldly production we’ve come to expect from recent Cudi releases, as well as a solid verse from veteran rapper Too $hort. We’ve heard rumors that Indicud is gonna be a game-changer, and it’s certainly shaping up to have that potential.

Special thanks to a dedicated Cudi fan for always keeping me updated on his releases.
