Review: Kid Cudi's "Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven"
As one of the most significant rappers of the past decade, for better or worse, Kid Cudi's stamp on the genre has been inescapable. I mean, lets face it, Kanye's last 3 albums have not only featured that man in some right, but they've also had Cudi's fingerprints all over. Loathe though I am to stroke his ego, there's no mistaking that a great deal of non-street rap in the last few years may have been kids raised on Kanye, but Cudi was their babysitter.
6 Artists That Probably Influenced Kid Cudi's "Speedin' Bullet To Heaven"
Kid Cudi has been a bit of a WTF story over the past few years. Mr. Rager exploded onto the scene with a couple of mixtapes and a couple solid albums, some that people may even call classics of the 2010 era.

Kid Cudi Is Upset His Album Was Labeled "Hip-Hop" On iTunes
Kid Cudi may have began his career in hip-hop, but he's always made sure to push the boundaries of the genre.

He was a brainy oddball, known for taking non-rap sounds and bringing them into the hip hop world. His debut mixtape, 2008's A Kid Named Cudi, was heralded for doing just that.
