Kid Cudi Goes On a Killing Spree in ‘Maniac’ Short Film


Kid Cudi stars in a new video for ‘Maniac’ that is not only grisly but maybe tough to watch for people with a weak stomach. The 10-minute black-and-white short film stars Cudi and fellow rapper Cage as French serial killers named Mr. Rager and Mr. Palko, respectively, who get their thrills by killing random people. Yep, this is not your average rap video.

Although the film was inspired by Cudi’s song ‘Maniac’ off his second album ‘Man On The Moon II: The Legend Of Mr. Rager,’ Cudi nor Cage spit any rhymes in the flick. Instead, we get to watch these two guys graphically snuff out innocent people while a documentary crew films each horrific murder. In one scene, Cudi throws a Molotov cocktail inside a car while two lovers are making out. Again, we have to stress that this movie is not for the squeamish.

So what’s the point of the film? We have no idea. Outside of the fact that it was released on Halloween (Oct. 31), we can only assume that this is Cudi’s own beautiful dark twisted fantasy — No Kanye West. This flick might not sit well with Cudi die-hard fans.

Take a look for yourself and tell us what you think.
