Our 50 Favorite Kid Cudi Songs

Bravery in vulnerability. Honesty in the face of pain. Effortless trend-setting. Undying authenticity. Inimitable talent. Astonishing hooks, soaring highs, and heartfelt lows. Creative ambition. The list goes on. These attributes and so many more are what makes Kid Cudi a living legend. From his stature as one of the most sonically and aesthetically influential artists alive to an entire catalog of classic albums, mixtapes, features, and chart-topping singles, there’s no denying the sheer impact and importance of the Cleveland-bred artist. His contributions not only to music, but to mental health awareness, fashion, and even acting range over a broad palette of interests and ventures, all of which bring fans back to the one and only Scott Mescudi — a multi-talented star in every right and the kind of artist and human that only comes around once in a lifetime. For our team at Lyrical Lemonade and for countless others, Kid Cudi has soundtracked some of our best moments in life just as much as he’s saved and helped us in our worst. With this in mind, to say that Kid Cudi is an artist for all occasions is an understatement, and furthermore, to say that he’s touched countless lives is …

Maggie’s Song – [David Miller]

From long summers in the basement making beats to singing, songwriting, and engineering, Chicago born and bred artist David Miller has recently debuted his own music. ‘Maggie’s Song,’ the first offering off of his project, ‘First Cut,’ EP is an eclectic, soft-sung that can be interpreted in several ways. At face value, the song is about David losing his mind over his girl. In reality, ‘Maggie’s Song,’ the young artist has lost his dog (Maggie), which explains the barking in the middle of the song. Miller’s storytelling ability is intricate, complete, and relatable. With other songs such as, ‘Drowning In Miami,’ David takes his listeners to a day in Miami in which he survived what he thought would be his last moments alive. Painting beautiful and vivid moments is seamless for the up and coming triple threat. Engineered with Aryay, Glowmo, and Danny Shyman, the project has elements of musicality that can be compared to Bob Dylan, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and more. The young man has incredible potential, producing records for several members of Chicago collective Save Money, writing and releasing his own music, and more. With a new project in the works David Miller is a unique force …

Racks On Me – [D Savage]

This summer has certainly seen given us some amazing music to bop too. I’m not sure what it is about the summer, but many artists bring out the big guns and really give it all they got. That’s exactly what we got from rapper D Savage. His latest offering, ‘Racks On Me,’ is a testament to how hard the rapper is working. Impressively enough, the rapper produces the majority of his own music, and freestyles most of it as well. No pen, no producer, no problem. The mindset of a true artist in 2019. He boasts about his successful progression in the game and his business mentality with lyrics such as, ‘I get the money, I know you can see it.’ With similar melodic capabilities to Travis Scott, the artist has created his own sound that resonates with listeners. A lot of emotion can be heard in his voice, something a lot of artists have trouble with. I see big things happening for LA-based rapper in the near future.

Rumination Journal – [camline]

Reflection is a prolific characteristic of music. Whether soundtracking soaring highs or crushing lows, music has the ability to induce reflection, marking perhaps one of its greatest powers. Here to present reflection in its purest form is an artist named camline with the impeccable new 3-track EP, Rumination Journal. Admittedly, I had to refer to a quick Google search to learn what “rumination” meant, but to save those who also didn’t know some time, the word is defined as “a deep or considered thought about something.” In the context of camline’s new EP, the word that really struck my eye from this definition was “considered.” While it may be short in length, Rumination Journal wastes no time on the surface level. Camline’s lyrics take swooping, comprehensive jabs at reflection, and when paired with such elegant, almost ethereal deliveries, listeners are immediately able to escape into presumably the same zone that the artist found himself in while creating the project. Even so, however, Rumination Journal‘s greatest achievement, at least in my opinion, is that of instrumentation. There’s no denying that Camline’s voice is utterly gorgeous. Every word that comes out of the budding talent’s mouth strikes with honest and genuine impact, and taking things …

Watch Key!’s New Documentary With The FADER

KEY!, otherwise known as FatManKey, is one of the most influential figures in rap right now. For a decade and counting, he’s remained prolific in the hip-hop conversation not only as one of the genre’s best A&Rs (Post Malone, 21 Savage, and Playboi Carti are amongst the discoveries on his resume), but also as an originator of just about every popular style you’ve heard over the past 10 years or so. Somehow and some way, the rap world always traces back to KEY!, and today, The FADER has done a noble job of championing this influence with their latest mini-doc, KEY! – Spectacular, Immaculate. Nodding to a line off of “It Gets Better” — my personal favorite cut off of the acclaimed project 777 — the title of the video is a perfect reflection of KEY!’s effortlessly cool demeanor. Even if he’s not the one running up the charts and dominating the spotlight, KEY! always seems to gravitate toward the best, if not most important, events going on in rap, and it all stems back to his endless creativity and easily-lovable personality. No one does it quite like Atlanta’s own, and tracking KEY!’s 2018 journey from Atlanta all the way to NYC for …

Slatt Science – [Mercocet] ft. [Ksay Wavy]

Chicago’s very own Mercocet is not here to play. Mercocet’s latest offering, “Slatt Science,” is the definition of a banger. With his guttural, brutal, and unique delivery the young emcee proves to be one of the hungriest rappers on the come up. Mercocet recruits fellow rapper, Ksav Wavy who provides an entirely different and totally necessary dynamic to the song. Produced by Yung Glizzy, the song possesses the grimy drill sound that causes fans to lose their minds at any show. And… hard hitting 808’s is an understatement. Trust me, play, “Slatt Science,” in your car. You’ll understand. Watch the music video, shot and produced by MilkyMadeIt, for “Slatt Science,” here:

On A Broke B*tch – [Yung Bans] Ft. [Ohgeesy] & [D Savage]

Lyrical Lemonade favorite Yung Bans released a brand new offering yesterday titled “On A Broke B*tch” featuring Ohgeesy & D Savage and it has already racked up over half a million streams on Soundcloud in less than a day! For good reason too, these three artists all fucking snapped on this one, and if you ask me that brought back that old Soundcloud feelings on this release if that makes sense. I hope to see all of these artists work with each other more in the future, and hopefully we get a music video to this song. Stream this brand new release below while we all wait for Yung Bans upcoming project Misunderstood that is set to drop later this year, and don’t forget to give Bans a follow on IG here! Produced by RONRON

Sunshine – [Cub-J] ft. [Otive]

Cub-J’s latest release, “Sunshine,” starts this summer off with a refreshing new vibe. On this one, the Chicago native elected to team up with NYC-based emcee, Otive. The result? An absolute banger. With Otive’s bouncy and memorable hook rambunctiously riding atop the lush and animated summertime production by JAB, listeners will certainly have this song on repeat all Summer ‘19.
 Per usual, Cub-J flexes his stylistic versatility as an emcee and songwriter, and with his cool, calm, and savvy deliveries, “Sunshine,” is a must play.

Watch Young Nudy’s New Interview With Complex

Young Nudy has risen to stardom over the past year or so with his wildly distinct voice and rare flows, and has found himself working with legends like Lil Uzi Vert, Playboi Carti, 21 Savage, and J. Cole, just to name a few. His latest project Sli’merre is a joint project with legendary ATL producer Pi’erre Bourne. This interview with Complex becomes quite interesting, because though usually, Nudy is not one of many words, they’re able to get him comfortable in front of the camera and touch on some well-thought and intriguing questions that let the viewer know the hilarious and genuine Young Nudy a little more on his trek to the top. Some interesting questions asked include how he goes about creating concepts in his songs, does he write songs, how he came to work with Pi’erre, why a lot of his songs have food in the title, and what music inspires him to create. Nudy then finishes out the interview talking about his viral leak, “Pissy Pamper/Kid Cudi” that he collaborated with Playboi Carti on. Be sure to watch the interview below!
