Kid Cudi Keeps His Chin Up On New Track “Capcom”

By: Becky Bain / April 1, 2011

Newly sobered up Kid Cudi has given up his weed, but he’s still focused on his tunes. A new Cudder track, “Capcom”, surfaced this afternoon, a somewhat anthemic number rumored to be off his upcoming summer mixtape, A Man Named Scott. Enjoy below!

“I’m ready to fight now, fire to fire / Hit for hit now, blow for blow / The world is vicious, but I’ll be victorious,” declares Cudder on the chorus. His optimism present on this track is already a big change from the melancholy vibe present on both editions of his Man On The Moon albums.

For someone who wants to trade rap for rock, this jam isn’t much a step to become the next guitar-slaying rockstar. And with that horn section, it almost feels like a low-budget “All Of The Lights”.

What do you think of Kid Cudi’s latest?
