In recent months, Kid Cudi’s been entertaining himself with delusions of rock stardom (an illness often referred to as the Lil Wayne Syndrome). Perhaps hoping to prove he’s still got flow, Cudi returns to straight rapping with a brand-new song called “Dennis, Hook Me Up With Some More Of That Whiskey!”

And speaking of Mr. Rager, Cudi’s verses are overflowing with that loner angst he kicked his career off with, as with lines like, “Now I don’t give a fuck about n***as worrying about my $1,000 pants/…Come to think about it, don’t have many friends”.
