Kid Cudi drops first single from The Legend of Mr. Rager

As his recent arrest further proves, Kid Cudi likes ganja, and by the sound of his debut LP – Man on the Moon: End of Day – he loves to talk too.

Blame it on the weed or his emotional state, but Mr. Scott Ramon Segura Mescudi continues to flaunt his gift of gab on his brand new track “REVOFEV”. The song (short for “Revolution of Evolution”) features a string arrangement from Larry Gold and more production from Plain Pat, who worked with Cudi on his 2008 mixtape – A Kid Named Cudi . Gold is the man responsible for the string arrangements on Jay-Z’s 2001 Unplugged album.

“REVOFEV” is the first single from part two of Cudder’s Man on the Moon series (due September 14 via GOOD music), and starts with him babbling, “Welcome…welcome you. Hey! I’m your big brother. What do I have to say to the kids?” before finally launching into his trademark talking-rapper flow. The tune features a guitar line reminiscent of Hova’s “D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune)”, but still lacks the energy Cudi had on his 2008’ mixtape.

Despite the track’s less-than-promising nature, Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager is still catching hype with rumors of Duran Duran samples and a cameo from Kanye. And while it isn’t as entertaining as his Vampire Weekend-inspired freestyle, it sure beats reading dirty tweets regarding Amanda Bynes any day.
