Kid Cudi Wrangles Mary J. Blige, Cee-Lo for ‘Man on the Moon II’
Kid Cudi‘s sophomore album ‘Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager,’ has been hit with several delays in recent weeks, but in the meantime more information continues to trickle out about the rapper’s sophomore LP.
During his Monday night (Sept. 13) appearance in New York City, for the launch of Microsoft’s ‘Halo: Reach’ video game, Cudder revealed to Rap-Up that there will be some notable guests on the new album, in addition to his G.O.O.D. Music family. “When it comes to features, I really just stick with my homies,” Cudi explained about his guests on the upcoming album. “My people, Chip Tha Ripper, GLC, got my boy Cage on there, got Mary J. Blige on the album, we got Cee-Lo on the album — it’s just really taking off where the last album did.”
Earlier in the year, Cudi told fans that ‘Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager,’ would be a dark album, that explored the experiences tied into his rise to fame. “It will explain more of who I am as well as pushing the envelope musically,” he said. “This project will focus on many dark, fun, and ignorant moments in my life since I’ve been Kid Cudi in an exciting and cinematic nature continuing the MOTM theme.”
So far, several tracks have been leaked from the ‘MOTMII,’ in addition to the first official single ‘Erase Me,’ which features Kanye West. Production credits on the album will include Ratatat, Dot Da Genius and Kanye West. ‘Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager’ is currently set for a November 9 release.
