When Brooklyn via Cleveland guy Kid Cudi last graced Australia in June of this year, I wrote that it was dope (and rare) to have an artist who at least seems to be on the verge of making some exciting moves, come out to this country at this stage in their career. Cudi had a deal with A-Trak's Fools Gold and a cult-hit on his hands in Day N Nite (with some additional help from the Crookers) , and seemed to be in a good place as far as the new school of rap artists go. It was great to meet him and producer/DJ O Dot, and see him perform, but fucking horrible to see the poor turnout and promo.
Little did I, or anyone, know that his return would be so quick, and the reason for that return would be Kanye West. Now signed to G.O.O.D Music, appearing on one of 808's & Heartbreak's best cuts and a confirmed contributor to the creation process for said album, Cudi will not only headline this gig with Plain Pat and get support from our X & Hell, but also join Kanye on stage at Glow In The Dark. How bout that shit?
Come and see what I am talking about next Thursday 4th December @ Roxanne's with our friends MAFIA and A-Style keeping things moving earrrrrly.
BTW, I am posting this again, its too funny.
