Criminally underrated minor release from Kid Cudi.

Incredible to think that this is a self-produced record, considering that Scott also forged the beats on "Indicud", which had a lot of underwhelming moments, but at the very least retained a good, consistent aesthetic.

# Kid Cudi Discography Nr. 6

This release is the second criminally underrated from Cudi. Return to moon man themes, the atmosphere created by this LP is absolutely great and the production is psychedelic and spatial.

It is a minor release by Cudi, with no promotion and no attendance, and the result is an enjoyable fast LP of 10 tracks.

Accuracy: ⭐️⭐️
