Kid Cudi - "Day N Nite" (video)

by Mike Deane

26 February 2009

 

Kid Cudi (AKA The Man on the Moon) brings it with a semi-artsy, fairly interesting video to accompany his semi-artsy, fairly interesting first single, Day N Nite. It reminds me of a more advanced and less uplifting version of Junior’s “Mama Used to Say” video from 1982. Overall I would say it’s up there for rap video of 2009. I like the use of animation and feel it adds something; it’s not superfluous psych out CGI. Cudi seems like he could really do something this year, and though the term “lonely stoner” makes me feel a bit embarrassed/weird/old, this song really stands out in the commercial radio realm.
