Starring in the Need For Speed movie which hit theatres this weekend, Kid Cudi paid a visit to The Arsenio Hall Show on Friday. The rager opened the show by performing “Internal Bleeding,” off his Satellite Flight: The Journey To Mother Moon LP.
After hitting the stage, Cudi sat down with Arsenio to discuss releasing the new album as a surprise, the state of hip-hop, and not many rappers pushing boundaries musically. “I think the braggadocio ‘Money, Cash, Hoes’ thing needs to be deaded,” said Cudder on rap culture currently. He continued, “I feel like that’s holding us back as a culture, as black people, that doesn’t advance us in any way, shape, or form.”
The Cleveland-native also touched on his personal mission as a musician, dealing with suicide and loneliness, and what would happen if he chose to rap about material things, “There would be no Drake.”
