Kid Cudi and Eminem teamed up together for a new song titled ‘The Adventures of Moon Man and Slim Shady’ which was released recently.
Kid Cudi has gradually been returning to the music scene and this is the pair’s first time collaborating, which worked really well for them, as both Kid Cudi and Eminem showed us flames with their talent on wordplay and flow in their verses.
The rappers appear as animated characters in the lyric video for the song as they rap about recovery and current events, amongst other subjects. Plus the cover art is pretty cool –
Kid Cudi raps at the opening of his first verse, which discusses late-night jaunts, his time in rehab, and going through the “dark and the light.”
Eminem touched on the topics of the COVID-19 pandemic and racial injustices in his verse and even gave shoutouts to George Floyd and Ahmaud Arberys, as he made sure to touch on one of the most prevalent issues being police brutality.
‘The Adventures of Moon Man and Slim Shady’ is Kid Cudi’s third song of the year, following ‘Leader of Delinquents’ and his collaboration with Travis Scott, titled ‘The Scotts’.
Kid Cudi is also working beyond music, he has teamed up with Kanye West to voice characters in an upcoming animated show, directed by Takashi Murakami ‘Kids See Ghosts’, which is inspired by their 2018 collaborative album which has the same title. The rapper is also set to star in the HBO series ‘We Are Who We Are’.
Eminem collaborated with Jessie Reyez on her song ‘Coffin’, in March. He also released his 11th album, titled ‘Music to Be Murdered By‘, in January, which includes the single ‘Godzilla’.
Kid Cudi and Eminem have been getting a lot of positive feedback for their new song on Twitter, here are just a few tweets of praise towards the rappers who showed everyone how high their flames can burn –
