Back in the late 2000’s and early 2010’s, Kid Cudi was one of the most important artist of the time because he was one of the first to help people understand that it’s ok to not be ok. His music resonated in a way that was very down to earth and felt like a close friend, where he laid out all of his troubles for the world to see and not only related to fans, but made them feel normal for having struggles. Kid Cudi will always be one of my absolute favorite artists and even though I don’t revisit this album as often as I probably should, I still feel the jolt of excitement every time I see the cover and click play on songs like “Mojo So Dope” or “Mr .Rager”. This cover art is also probably Cudi’s best ever, featuring him sitting a suit in front of a galaxy like background and effects layered on top to make it look like a crinkly, vintage photo. It’s ethereal and almost dream like, which is very fitting for the tracks on this album. It’s unlike other covers in the hip hop/rap genre and it’s obvious there was plenty of effort put into it to make it interesting and memorable.
