  19. Hopp Says:

    Cudi>>>>>>>> ”

    Heartly disagree.

    Im sure I would be one of a few who feel this way… But as emo as Cudi is, it works for that guy… MOTM was a very well structured, very well put together emotional album… And it had maybe 4 qoutables…

    Soundtrack To My Life>>>>>>

    Simple As>>>>>>>

    Mr. Solo Dolo>>>>>>

    My World>>>>

    Heart of a Lion>>>>>

    Cudi Zone>>>>>>>

    Up Up & Away>>>>>

    Sky Might Fall>>>>>>

    Them shits resonate, IMO

  24. Hopp Says:

    ” Im sure I would be one of a few who feel this way… ”

    You’d be surprised. More people would rather agree with u than with me.

    That album on the moon of his was greatly praised.

  25. Mr. Freeze aka Muffler Lungs Says:

    In My Dreams iz my shit even though it just an intro joint

  26. Don Vincenzo Says:

    Im not gon lie BP3 and MOTM was all a nigga played for like 2-3 months straight… I mean it wasnt nuttin really good that was new out other than them joints but even still…

  27. Don Vincenzo Says:

    In My Dreams iz my shit even though it just an intro joint

    Wizzord… Lemme tap(n) the L nigga… I know u got a swisher, or a white grape game cigarello over there

  28. RNC Chairman Michael Steele Says:

    MOTM had a concept and flowed from track to track well. Cudi picks good beats for his sound and has a unique voice and fresh sounding hooks.

    Problem is the lyrics were really bad, and the concept was shallow. So bad you couldn’t really call it a good album.

    Just my opinion though, I realize this is all subjective.

  29. Hoskins Says:

    so casket u a woman beater too?

  30. RNC Chairman Michael Steele Says:

    Kid Cudi- I Do My Thing [not from MOTM] sounds pretty nice though. So do Day’n’Nite, Sky Might Fall, and Poke Her Face. Intergalactic sounds good too.

    But otherwise he’s kind of meh…
