A Leaked Upload Of Playboi Carti’s "Kid Cudi" Is Currently No.1 On Spotify’s US Viral 50 Chart

Fans can’t get enough  Young Nudy and Playboi Carti’s still-unreleased viral track “Kid Cudi” (aka “Pissy Pamper”), and they’re going the extra mile to hear it. A version Carti’s verse on the track, that has had its pitch altered, was uploaded under the title “Kid Carti” by an artist named Lil Kambo, and currently sits at No. 1 on Spotify’s United States Viral 50 chart. The unficial upload boasts more than two million streams already, further demonstrating the unquenchable appetite fans seem to have, for a song that has yet to be released ficially.

Reached by Genius email, Kambo revealed themselves to be a high school sophomore who uploaded the track for fun. “I first made my Spotify account to post songs that aren’t already on Spotify,” Kambo explained. “Before the song came out there was a snippet on YouTube and it sounded like it would be a hit if it was released. A couple weeks later the song got leaked and I posted it to my channel not thinking about how big it would get. I posted it on the Playboi Carti reddit to help the fans find the song.”

Although audience response to the track was mostly quiet at first, streams picked up after the song started appearing in Instagram memes and it really jumped following Carti’s performance at Rolling Loud. “That is when I hit No. 1 on the US viral charts,” Kambo recalled. The track now has 2.3 million streams and counting. Kambo said they haven’t made any money f the song yet, but that “it is very exciting to see something I did for fun get so popular.”

Carti’s “Kid Cudi” verse first emerged online back in March, as a preview on Instagram Live. Since then, a full version the song, revealed to be a Young Nudy and Pi’erre Bourne track titled “Pissy Pamper,” has also surfaced. After Carti performed the song at Coachella and Rolling Loud, several unficial uploads on YouTube separately started garnering millions streams. It continues to inspire a stream memes, including a recent video featuring Carti depicted as an infant rapping his verse:

Despite the track’s obvious and widespread popularity, it still, for unknown reasons, remains unreleased. It samples a song from the 80s, by Japanese singer Mai Yamane, “Tasogare,” who is perhaps best known to US audiences for her work on the Adult Swim series Cowboy Bebop. This makes it ble to assume that sample clearance issues stopped it from appearing on Young Nudy’s recent project, Sli’merre – although it could also be dropped as part  Carti’s upcoming Whole Lotta Red mixtape instead.

No matter how the song made its way to Spotify, “Kid Cudi”/“Pissy Pamper” is clearly a hit that Carti and Nudy have, as yet, been unable to capitalize on. As appreciation track grows, it feels like the rappers are failing to monetize their own success.

Kid Cudi Featured In “Westworld” Season 3 Trailer

Los Angeles, CA – HBO has captivated viewers around the world with the final season of Game of Thrones. Now, the media giant is playing on the heartstrings of Hip Hop fans after revealing Kid Cudi’s role in season three of the sci-fi series Westworld.

Starring alongside Aaron Paul, the trailer shows Cudi in a prison-style jumpsuit about a minute into the brief synopsis of the new season. The Grammy-winning rapper appears to be as excited as his fans are about the role too. He sharing his enthusiasm — emoji — with a Twitter follower on Sunday (May 19).

In a recent series of tweets, Cudi updated his fans on his creative process. He alluded to working on other projects and said new music was in his plans but not until 2020. He assured fans, “It’ll all make sense soon.”

Outside of his music and acting, Cudi has also entered a new partnership with adidas. Their collaboration is due out later this year.

Aaron Paul Shines Through In Official Trailer For "Westworld" Season 3

Right before HBO aired the final chapter in the Game Thrones saga, the trailer for Westworld’s upcoming season flashed before our eyes, a first look at the character drawn up for Aaron Paul. Season 3’s trailer will inevitably fall short assuaging any leftover GOT fans reeling from the immediacy their loss, or worse yet – a loss consciousness resulting in a sick note from the doctor, who his or herself is reeling from the same condition. Sounds like a real bummer, doesn’t it?

Not so fast. If anything’s going to cure the GOT hangover it’s going to be a surrogate program like Westworld, and what better way to kick things f than with a revamped cast going into Season 3. At about the 1-minute mark the new Westworld trailer, Aaron Paul makes his first ficial appearance in a WW uniform, with Pink Floyd playing over the narration.

Aaron Paul isn’t alone in joining the cast this go-around. Kid Cudi is the other notable addition, joining what was already seen as fairly “stacked roster” for the silver screen. “Dolores,” the series’ protagonist portrayed by Evan Rachel Wood, appears at the tail end the trailer, walking underneath a bridge (on the outer limits the amusement park). Lena Waithe, who doesn’t make an appearance in the 1:40 teaser, is listed as a cast member for Season 3, as is Vincent Cassel, believe to assuming a villainous role in the story. And, get this: Marshawn Lynch is believed to be onboard the project as well. Season 3 is slated for release in 2020. Keep it locked.

Kid Cudi Promises New Music Next Year

It’s no secret Kid Cudi has wrestled with mental health issues for years. He was hospitalized in 2016 for depression and “suicidal urges” but has seemingly been on the mend ever since.

Aside from his collaborative project with Kanye West, Kids See Ghosts, the 35-year-old Cleveland artist hasn’t put out a proper album since 2016’s Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’. But evidently, that’s going to change in the near future.

According to several tweets he shared on Friday (May 17), Cudi is back in the studio and has promised new material in 2020. However, he made it clear self-care comes first.

“New music next year!!” he wrote. “Gonna work the rest of this year. In no rush to do anything right now. I dont drop albums every year anymore. Gotta give myself time to do other things. And relax!”

Cudi added it will “all make sense soon” and proclaimed the “next stage has begun.”

Shortly after his 2016 hospitalization, Cudi explained why he chose to reveal his struggles Facebook and what made him seek treatment during an interview with Billboard.

“I was in a really bad place, and at the time, I felt like I was letting a lot of people down,” he said. “It was really hard for me to even write that letter, but I needed to be honest with the kids. I needed to. I couldn’t live a lie. I couldn’t pretend to be happy.”

Revisit his original Facebook post below.

Kid Cudi Says He’ll Drop New Music In 2020: "I Don’t Drop Albums Every Year Anymore"

The icon that is Kid Cudi, took to Twitter today to update fans about his plans on releasing new music, explaining that he is “in no rush to do anything right now.” The rapper appeared as part this year’s Rolling Loud Lineup, which he followed up by honoring Miami with a four-piece exclusive merch collection in collaboration with Cactus Plant Flea Market. The pieces are based on his last full-length studio album, his 2016 Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’

As well as this fashion collaboration, Cudi also recently announced his upcoming collaboration with Adidas. As well as this, the rapper announced last month that he would be joining the cast  the opioid crisis film “Dreamland”; and, despite having not released new music in a hot minute, he still graced the stages the Coachella festival, and is set to appear as part the 2019 HARD Summer Festival lineup.

All these projects can provide justification as to why Cudi says he “gotta give myself time to do other things,” since he really does seem to be involving himself in a plethora creative projects outside music. Besides, it’s not like the artist doesn’t produce anything in terms music, he did, after all, collaborate with Kanye on their Kids See Ghost album last summer.

He did (in a way) confirm that he would be dropping an album next year though, and I think we can all say that we’ll definitely be on the lookout for it.

Lil Uzi Vert Suddenly Runs Away From Nardwuar, Once Again

Nardwuar has a tendency creeping out his interview subjects with his vast knowledge their lives. While some artists have come to appreciate Nardwuar’s research, others have suddenly left the interviews (i.e. Kid Cudi). One Nardwuar’s most notable interviews in recent times has been with Lil Uzi Vert. Now, we know Uzi and Nardwuar are both eccentric but it seems like it’s an overload their anomalous ways whenever they link up. Nardwuar recently caught up with Uzi after the rapper’s Rolling Loud set in Miami and things were got even weirder this time around.

If you recall, the last time Nardwuar interviewed Lil Uzi Vert, the rapper ran out abruptly. “Yo, he know too much,” Uzi said after Nardwuar asked him about Guns Garcia. “I can’t do this. What Kanye do?” He asked f camera before running out the interview, making Nardwuar chase him down for a final “Doot! Doot!”

The second time around was no different. This time around, the interview ran even shorter. Nardwuar gifted Uzi a car-freshener shaped out the rapper’s head. He later inquired about DJ P Forreal’s father, Prince Paul Stesasonic, before inquiring about Uzi’s love for Lorna Shore. Lil Uzi, once again, ran away, making Nardwuar chase him down to complete the interview.

The “feminine half head,” as it’s been described, will be present on everything they put out together, giving the Kid Cudi line its very own imprint, like a Jordan symbol.

Rolling Loud Dismisses Active Shooter Report

Miami Gardens, FL – On Friday (May 10), social media went into a frenzy with chatter there was an active shooter wreaking havoc on the unsuspecting Rolling Loud crowd inside Miami Gardens’ Hard Rock Stadium.

It turns out those reports were false and the Rolling Loud team is assuring concertgoers and the general public alike that there is no threat.

“Shortly after 11 p.m. on Friday night, there was a disturbance that led a large group of fans to believe there was an active shooter within the festival grounds,” Rolling Loud co-founder Tariq Cherif said in a statement. “The commotion resulted in these fans running out of the venue, some of whom were injured and/or scared in the process. Security and public authorities immediately sprung into action, established it was a false alarm and there was not an active shooter in the festival, and diffused the situation.”
