It’s interesting that a kid from Cleveland and a guy from Detroit would have anything in common. However, search Hypem.com and you’ll see the two are huge. Kid Cudi has been signed by Universal Motown and GOOD Music (a record label he shares with Kanye West, where he debuted, nationally, on 808’s & Heartbreak).
Sufjan Stevens had a similar climb to popularity, with his album Illinois. This track takes the instrumental from his song “Chicago” from Illinois and meshs with Kid Cudi’s, very popular stream-of-conscience lyrics. It’s quite a great mash-up!
Here’s another mix, redone by Steve Aoki.
