Kid Cudi Featured in ELLE Magazine “ELLE 25″

In this year’s summer edition of ELLE Magazine they list the 25 things to look forward to for the rest of the year on their “ELLE 25″ list. Hit the jump for the cover and to see why Cudi’s #1.

The ELLE 25

In a year of head hanging cultural low points (we’re looking at you, Jersey Shore), ELLE presents the 25 best reasons to keep your fait – from the year’s must hear genre busting albums to Cher’s showstopping return to celluloid. (We’ll fist pump to that!)

Number 1 – Kid Cudi

“It’s an aggressive album, not to be taken lightly”

When rapper Kid Cudi Released Man on the Moon: The End of Day last fall, his emotive hip-hop outcooled every thugged-out MC on the market. Almost overnight the 26 year-old, dressed in skinny jeans and a thick-frame glasses, sold nearly half a million albums, lent vocals to Jay-z’s “Already Home” on The Blueprint 3, and became a lead player in HBO’s dramedy How to Make it in America. On Septemebr 14, he’ll release Man on the Moon Pt. 2: The Legend of Mr. Rager, a sophmore effort that up-stages his first, whith booming choruses (Cudi sings — sans Auto-Tune, at that!), raging electro beats, and a rock-rooted single, “Erase Me,” which features that other hypercool skinny-jean-clad rapper, Kanye West. –Julie Vadnal

For the record, when this issue went to print the current date for the album was indeed Sept. 14 but as we all know that has changed. Man on the Moon Pt. 2 is currently slated to hit store shelves on Oct. 26.

  • gossip_guru

    im happy for the kid! but why do ppl think his album hasnt went gold yet. when actually he’s at platnium status…

  • http://www.dp-studios.net DP

    He has yet to hit Gold…he may have just crossed it this week but either way he is no where near Platinum.

  • Stompek

    what mixtape came out ?

    Wow this is huge. Kudos to Cudi!

  • Nate

    Congratulations to Cudi. He deserves the recognition. Man on the Moon was one of the best albums I’ve heard in a long time and I can’t wait for MOTM2. From my view, Cudi can do no wrong musically. The guy is a genius. Hope he wins at the VMAs and really hope MOTM gets to platinum status soon. I was kind of surprised that it hadn’t already got there but I guess true artists never get the success they deserve.
