Kid Cudi’s highly anticipated eighth studio album has arrived. Entergalactic was released Friday (Sept. 30) and features 2 Chainz (“Can’t Believe It”), Ty Dolla $ign (“Willing To Trust” and “Can’t Shake Her”), Don Toliver (“Somewhere To Fly”), and “Burrow” which has Toliver, Steve Aoki, and Dot Da Genius.
He previously dropped “Do What I Want” and “Willing To Trust” as singles for the project. Cudi’s album rollout also included a Bose commercial starring Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow which teased his “Somewhere To Fly” track featuring Toliver.
In addition to the 15-track LP, the Ohio native’s Netflix animated series of the same name has also been released on the streaming platform.
The voice cast stars include Cudi himself (as Jabari) alongside Ty Dolla $ign (Ky), 070 Shake (Nadia), Teyana Taylor (Boxing Coach), Jaden Smith (Jordan), Vanessa Hudgens (Karina), Timothée Chalamet (Jimmy), Macaulay Culkin (Downtown Pat) and more.
The series features Cudi’s character, Jabari, who Consequence describes as a “charming, creative visionary.” Jabari is best friends with Jimmy and Jimmy’s character is a weed dealer who now is shifting gears to be a “crypto bro.” Meadow, played by Jessica Williams, is Jabari’s love interest and is a budding photographer. Downtown Pat who is described as a “downtown legend and life-long, city-wide delinquent” is played by Macaulay Culkin.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Cudi spoke about his longevity in hip-hop. “I never imagined I would have this many albums. So right now, I feel extremely blessed to be able to do what I’m doing at this stage in my career.”
He continued, “It’s one of those things where I’ve been able to grow with the times but still remain myself. And that’s an art form in itself because we’ve seen it with other artists. Some artists don’t stand the test of time.”
