Kid Cudi recently wrapped filming on the first season of his new HBO series “How to Make It in America,” opened for Lady Gaga on her Monster Ball Tour and is even set to headline his own shows soon — and he’s also found time to work on the video for “The Pursuit of Happiness” with Josh Hartnett and director Brody Baker.
“I just saw the first rough cut the other day. Drake is in it. He has a cameo … a bunch of my homies that I knew coming up,” Cudi said. “We were just kicking it. When you see the video, it just makes me feel good, because I’m seeing all my friends and people that matter in my life. We were all celebrating. It’s like a New Year’s Eve-type thing. Everybody’s just getting wasted.”
While “The Pursuit of Happiness” features MGMT and was produced by Ratatat, they weren’t available for the video shoot. However, Cudi is thinking about making another version featuring both groups.
“I’m going to pull the Kanye and do multiples,” he laughed.
