G.O.O.D Music Day is still a couple months off, making this the vital time to decide which Kanye-affiliated record you'll purchase alongside his Good Ass Job. KiD CuDi is vying for your dollars on “Erase Me” with a guest spot from Mr. West.
The CuDDer is taking the arena rock anthem – slash – homecoming dance closer angle on “Erase Me.” The drums are simplistic with an obscene amount of echo on the bass, while the rawk geetars are cut from the same mold as a Kelly Clarkson single. It took a couple burns of “Pursuit Of Happiness” by a local DJ for CuDi's sing-song style to catch on with me. I caught myself humming “All Summer” during a menial task, but I don't see my disgusted opinion of “Erase Me” lessening. Much to my chagrin, this is destined to be a gigantic single poised to be some high school graduate's theme song when his girlfriend breaks up with him before college so she can go on a co-ed cock safari – CuDDer's got your back, son.
KiD CuDi's Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager is out September 14.
