Don’t be so down, c’mon young homie
You’ll be okay, you’ll find real love
All of the stories, the hero gets lonely
Now is the time to show what you’re made of
Just a little less than a week after I made a post about why the world needed MOTM3, Cudi came out with a new track, a track that will undoubtedly become an anthem for me, and all the kids like me, for years to come.
“Love”, is everything we’ve come to know and truly cherish about Scott’s Music. It’s all there, the singing, the melodies, the uplifting message, and to top it all off, the classic Ratatat sample.
If there’s one thing that this track focuses on particularly, it’s the message. If you take a look back, you’ll realize something about Kid Cudi and his art, it’s always been about just that, the message.
Remember that time you walked home from your first day of high school and listened to “Man on the Moon” (The Anthem)? I do.
Remember those times you put on “Day N Night” just to forget about all the shit that was on your mind at that particular time? I do.
Remember when you left “All Along” on repeat the first time you got played out by some girl? I do.
Remember when you listened to “Love” for the first time, and all the memories of what Kid Cudi’s music has done for your life, came rushing back? I do.
If there’s one thing that I can’t say for anyone else in this world except for Scott, it’s that he’s the only person that I’ve never actually met, but have always felt like I’ve truly known.
I can only hope that one day, I will say or write something on behalf of the thousands of kids like me, that will get across to Scott, and he’ll feel the genuine and raw appreciation flow through him.
Thank you once again, Scott.
