Kid Cudi, ‘Brake’ – Song Review
Reclusive artist Kid Cudi recently unveiled his new song ‘Brake’ that he co-produced with Dot da Genius for their group W Z R D. The tune is a far cry from his popular rap tracks like ‘Day ‘n’ Nite and ‘Make Her Say.’ Cudi plays the guitar while Dot Da Genius provides the beat on this rock-infused song.
Over mysterious guitars and echoey drums Cudi repeatedly howls, “No light to guide my way / I’m goin’ blind down the hill / Nothing that no one can say / I’m gonna find my will to live / No, I won’t brake.” And that’s it. The song gets a little spooky at the end with its murky keyboards closing it out.
We don’t know what to make of the song, but Cudi really loves it. “To the people that dont like it, I do, and I feel good about it,” he said on his Twitter page. “Thats all that matters. This s–t is awesome, f— all that other s–t ha.” His fans seemed to enjoy the track, as well. “So glad to say #cudderisback @wizardcud #Brake is so dope,” tweeted one fan.
Cudi admits that ‘Brake’ will never get radio airplay, however, he plans to release a single that will be more radio-friendly. We wish him well on his new journey of freedom and rock ‘n’ roll.
