Cudders x Angie Martinez

July 18, 2009

I gave you the audio to an interview that Kid Cudi did with Hot 97’s, Angie Martinez, and today I giving you guys the video version of the interview. Again, in this interview with Angie, Cudders speaks on the Make Her Say video, his upcoming album, Man on the Moon: The End of the Day, how hip hop is so judgmental, and he responds to Jay-Z’s D.O.A. slam on skinny jeans.

Just as a reminder, Cudi’s album has been pushd back to September 25th, but will still be more than dope.

That was the longest and hottest natural freestyle I have ever had on the show.
