I think Cudi might have some redemption points on this track...

Kid Cudi - Make Her Say f. Kanye & Common

 

I love this track.  I am not too used to Lady Gaga, but the sample was used very well plus I love how this is a montage of hit hooks for the year.

Video, definite props on the dual screen experimentation, real cool.  Plus they jacked the desaturated ballon look from Sofia Coppola's Dior Ad

and what was the record player the video girl was play with, because I will run out and buy it now?

UPDATE: I feel like an idiot.  The slick record player is actually the controller for the upcoming game "DJ Hero," yeah from the makers of guitar hero. 

 

Kid Cudi - The Sky Might Fall X Transformers 2 Trailer

 
See video

Produced by Kanye West 

The hottest track to be teasing America with only 30 seconds of it on the Transformers Trailer and a live cut at concert.

If you are a true Kid Cudi fan you would check what is after the JUMP and if you are not, you can watch the Transformers 2 trailer with the recently "not in a relatioship, meaning single" Megan Fox.

 

Kid Cudi - Day ‘N’ Night directed by So Me

 

Directed by So Me (artist for Ed Banger Records)

I have to say this is the most creative music video I have seen for Hip Hop in an awhile.  The graphics done by So Me integrates seemlessy into meaning of the song.  I don't promote drug use, but Kid Cudi's Day N' Nite is considered to be the smokers' anthem.  And you can see how graphical devices So Me implements are not just graphical but effectively conveys this dual reality of "Day and Night."  I would keep you eyes out for Kid Cudi, he is a young kat coming from the Kanye camp, so he one of those cultured rappers that are able to balance on the line of art and commercialism.

Kanye West f. KiD CuDi - Welcome To Heartbreak

 

I want to say this is the latest video for Kanye West, but Kanye dropped it as his single after finding another video using the same pixelated effect.  I was interested in the badly encoded divx look, but it gets overly-overdone afterwhile.  On other news, Kid Cudi was tasered for refusing to wear Reebox's at a Reebox party, obviously there is more to the story but you can do that research yourself.

"This is not the next single, “Amazing” is the next single.
This is the video we’ve been working on for the last month.
We know there is another video out there using the same technique so we were forced to drop it now. "
