Kid Cudi Enters The Boombox Battle Hall of Fame
After four successful weeks at the top, Kid Cudi becomes the latest inductee to enter The Boombox Battle Hall of Fame.
Kid Cudi has stayed strong in the Battle competition over the past few weeks. And with his latest victory againts Snootie Wild's "Play Wit a Brick," he has gained entry into the Hall of Fame.
Spending more time on movie sets than in studio booths these days, the Cleveland native returns to the mic with his latest song “Love.” Sampling Ratatat’s “Sunblocks,” he laments about loneliness but sounds triumphant by the time he reaches the hook.
“Don’t be so down, come on young homie / You’ll be okay, you’ll find real love / All of the stories the hero gets lonely, now is the time to show all you’re made of,” he delivers in his melodic, rapping tone.
Cudi started his winning streak by earning 76 percent of the vote against Charles Hamilton and his collaboration with Rita Ora, "New York Raining." The following week, he competed against T-Pain's "Let Your Hair Down." Wale tried to beat Cudi with his track, "The White Shoes," but only garnered a little over 14 percent of the vote and was no match for the rapper-turned-actor.
And by the time Kid Cudi and Snootie Wild went into the ring together, the "Love" singer walked away with more than 95 percent of the fan vote and became a shoe-in for this induction.
Kid Cudi joins the Weeknd, Fetty Wap, Chris Brown, Tinashe, Michael Jackson, Trey Songz, Lil Durk and T-Pain in The Boombox Battle Hall of Fame.
