A fresh mixtape dropped last week. KiD CuDi is a rapper from Cleveland and the tape is called A KiD Named CuDi. This mixtape has a fresh sound. A lot of the beats I would classify as "galactic." Lots of low-key synths with understated bass hitting in the background. It's worth checking out, especially since you can download it for free from KiD CuDi's blog (link below). I haven't quite made it through the entire mixtape yet, but the highlight for me is "Cleveland Is The Reason." I also really like "Is There Any Love?" and "Day N Night" (the first single available on iTunes). Also, CuDi raps over Band of Horses "Funeral" on the track "The Prayer." I don't know if he'll blow up on the radio, but CuDi is bound to be an underground sensation.
