Kid Cudi – Day ‘N’ Nite (One Minute Rule)

18 07 2009


Before looking up a picture of Kid Cudi for this post I really thought that this was going to be a female pop-star of some sort. I’m going to assume that he’s a hip-hop artist which is a pleasant surprise. He looks like he might have more style and may bring something else to the table other than generic rhymes and ringtone-rap hooks. We’ll just have to see. Kid Cudi’s song “Day ‘N’ Nite” is currently at the #12 spot on the Billboard top 100 pop charts. I have my fingers crossed on this one, but I’m not expecting much since it is on the pop charts after all.

On a side note, it appears as though Universal Music Group is saving the music industry from the evil clutches of music consumers once again so I wouldn’t expect to ever see a video for this song here. You can however click here to watch it on YouTube. I’m not sure what good that does UMG, but whatever. Hitting play now…

5 seconds in and I’m liking the keyboards in the beat. It’s got kind of a spacey vibe and while it sounds great for dance music, I’m not too sure how it’s going to fit in a rap song. He also says “uh” six times before starting. Hmm…at 14 seconds he starts to sing. I think that’s what he’s trying to do…sing. It’s not auto-tuned too much, but I’m starting to think that it should be. He’s just kind of talk-singing. I am however enjoying the general pacing of the vocals. He’s kind of skipping around the beat a bit which is interesting. The beat is also decent. Not great, but decent.


Method Man?

The first verse goes till 28 seconds and we’ve got a double verse here that looks like it’s going to have the same melody. A little boring. The beat is the only interesting thing here so far. I don’t even know what to write. I’m at the 42 second mark now and not much really happened in that verse. It’s just bland. I can’t even make fun of it. It’s like making fun of a cardboard box. Let’s see what this chorus is going to sound like.

Now we’ve got a slightly bigger beat for the chorus thanks to some extra keyboard pads. The subject of the song also seems to be about smoking weed day and night. I suppose you’d have to in order to be intrigued by this song. Not only is the song about a stoner, but it’s a “lonely stoner” no less. Oh, now we’ve also got a “lonely loner” along with the “lonely stoner.” Perhaps they will someday meet on a lonely street and the lonely stoner can share his weed with the lonely loner so the lonely loner could then get stoned and become a lonely stoner instead of only being lonely.

Fuck this song.

Verdict: This song will be mildly popular with heavily stoned suburban kids during their drive to work at the gas station, but only until around August or so.

The song is about him getting his heart broken and he has to smoke weed to “Free His Mind”
