Track of the Day: Kid Cudi

Posted By on Mon, Jun 15, 2009 at 11:13 AM

If there was any doubt that Kid Cudi's on his way up in this world, the Brooklyn (by way of Cleveland) rapper's latest single should help cement his ascendency. "Make Her Say" samples Lady Gaga's "Poker Face" hit and adds two star attractions on the mic: Kanye West and Common contribute their sexual innuendos to a tune originally tagged "I Poke Her Face." The ladies spit, strip, and swallow in this litany of locker room bravado bits, but the beats keep things light and bouncy as an innocent summer-at-the-roller-rink ditty. The song is the second single to come off Cudi's upcoming album, Man On The Moon: The Guardian.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
