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.

Review: Kid Cudi's "Satellite Flight: The Journey To Mother Moon"
Although none of his albums have really been critical hits, Kid Cudi’s main appeal is using outside, atypical influences and sounds to articulate some sort of emotional journey into the tortured soul.
