3163793456_254ee00d2e_b3Kid Cudi is obviously the most indie rapper right? I mean, first he samples Band of Horses song “Funeral” on “The Prayer” and now he’s sampling LCD Soundsystem on his new track “Can I Be” off an upcoming mixtape, Back 2 Basics. If only the track were longer than two minutes…

Kid Cudi – Can I Be

And just in case you forgot how awesome the original is…
LCD Soundsystem – Someone Great

Bonus “Someone Great” “sampling”
Justin Timberlake – My Love (Diplo Remix)

That was a fantastic post.
Cudi’s flow wasn’t the best I’ve heard out of him…however, his producer and diplo both picked a winner.

jon jon is right. I don’t think Cudi can be called an “indie” rapper. He is just like a bunch of MCs we have here in Chicago with the hipster movement. I was a big fan of his club version (soulwax) of Day ‘n Nite which took over here in Chi, with Cudi performing at a few clubs. With this track his lyrics leave more to be desired.

Kid Cudi isn’t great, and sadly neither is Diplo in terms of him cranking out the same old stuff over and over (I still like him though…), and I don’t like LCD Soundsystem either. Yes somehow I like this post.

Yo I am feeling the diplo mix. A little different as usual with him. I might actually dance to this! Also how do you make the mp3 links go to the download prompt like that? Javascript? somebody help me out!
