Song Of The Day – Kid Cudi – Pursuit Of Happiness ft MGMT + Ratatat

Posted in Music by flicksandbits on September 11, 2009

Been bumping this track non stop the last few days. To be honest I’ve been a bit of a Kid Cudi hater until I heard his debut album this week.

Before I thought he was a bit too moany and emo-ish for my liking. His album has really surprised me, I’m feeling it (no bruno). Musically it’s very different to what I’ve  heard from albums lately

PyroRadio.com: Is there a personal favourite on the album?

Kid Cudi: Yeah, definitely Heart of a Lion and Pursuit of Happiness. Those two joints hit me the most because they are so powerful and epic.

PyroRadio.com: You have quite an eclectic taste; which artists are you currently listening to?

Kid Cudi: Definitely Kings of Leon, MGMT, Kanye West, Jay-Z, OutKast. I vibe and listen to a bunch of shit at random moments.

PyroRadio.com: How did the collaboration with MGMT come about?

Kid Cudi: I’m a huge MGMT fan so when it came time to work on my album I had to reach out to them. I had to do something with them – same with Rat-a-tat. We had the initial meeting, we hung out and I just wanted to vibe with them and play them some of them album and they were into it. I felt that they were interested after hearing the album at what I could bring to the table. Then we started thinking about other projects we can do and working together. It was organic and it came together quite fresh.
