“Born in ’88.”

Kid Cudi

This took long enough.  Today, Kid Cudi released a new video for his second single ‘Make Her Say.’ The song features Kanye West and Common and has been on heavy rotation radio for a while now.

I like Kid Cudi.  His first single ‘Day ‘n’ Nite’ was great.  I like this song too.  It is the only way I can tolerate ‘Poker Face’ by Lady Gaga (which is sampled in the track).  But Cudi is outshined in this song.  Kanye and Common are two of my favorite MCs and both of them are at the top of the rap game right now.  Kid Cudi’s verse is noticible weak compared to theirs.

Common

I love the video.  It is chic, sexy and smart.  It is not over done, but it is fresh, visual candy.  Even thought I am not a huge Lady Gaga fan, I would have like to see her at the end when the beat breaks down into her acoustic version of the song (which is left out of the video version).  That would have been a nice way to reference her but still keep it about Kid Cudi, Kanye and Common.  Check it out below.
