Last night, Kid CuDi Tweeted verbatim: “mark my words, INDICUD will be the greatest album ever made. Know that I’m not lying.” As unbelievable as the claim might seem, we can’t dismiss the possibility out of hand—Just What I Am, the currently-charting lead single and only known cut off the set, scored and impressive 4.2 average rating from our discerning readership. But does King Wizard, the new song release premiered yesterday via Complex, sound like it belongs on the greatest album ever made? That’s for you, not I to decide—but I will say that the record sounds like vintage CuDi, with the Midwest hip-popster delivering defiant rapped bars and a hazy, sung hook over his own stark, plodding electronic production. If you think Scott Mescudi’s two for two thus far, keep it locked; while Universal Motown has yet to assign the album a drop date, we’ll be sure to keep you supplied with the latest on the forthcoming, artist-produced set.
