Kid Cudi may eventually “pull the Kanye” (oh, that’s what that means now?), but for now you can catch the Josh Hartnett-produced video for Cudi’s new single “The Pursuit Of Happiness,” which cropped up today. Cudi slows things waaaay down for a live-for-the-moment/toke-’em-if-you-got-’em anthem (which also features duo Ratatat and Kudi’s fellow Grammy nominees MGMT)—all to pretty potent effect. As he says, “Everything that shines ain’t always going to be gold,” and everything leaked on YouTube ain’t always going to avoid copyright enforcers, so let’s get to it.
