Kid Cudi track Pursuit of Happiness

Ah, the Pursuit of Happiness.  It is a foundational principle upon which the United States was built, a movie in which Will Smith cried a lot, and an action that probably gets boys, girls, husbands, wives, boyfriends, and girlfriends into more trouble than it’s ultimately worth.

Never you mind, death professor, Kid Cudi has taken all of those associations and thrown them out the window.  What is left is an elegant slice of modern hip hop that’s supplemented by MGMT and Ratatat.  What’s not to love?

mp3 : Kid Cudi – Pursuit of Happiness (feat MGMT and Ratatat)

Even the opening thirty seconds of gritty instrumentals is hypnotic.  And when the lyrics drop it’s obvious Kid Cudi is never, repeat never, going to slow his roll.  Never.  For those of you that care you can find this track on the album Man On The Moon: The End of Day (amazon) (itunes).  Enjoy.

  1. oh dear comment bot. your comment seems somewhat vague, and attempts to redirect my readers to your own simple website. for such a crass trespass upon my site i’ve removed all the links from your comment, changed your user name (so no one can even google it) and left your now useless comment here as a warning to others.



  2. This is one of the dopest songs of the year hands down. Cudi is actually performing at this halloween festival w/ Asher Roth, Paramore & AFI.


  3. This blog seems somewhat vague in it’s colour schema,needs some explanation about mysterious frontage of greyish hues. With iconic representation of a globe in the top right corner – displaying such beauty – but communicating such sadness, what is all about THAT???

    Nevertheless – catchiest, sadest, most accessible and flippant yet most inspiring tune of 09′. Bring on 2010.


  4. Ya Kid Cudi is taking names. Great track and especially how you can pick apart the individual artists but the collaboration sounds collaboration sounds complete and melds nicely. Well done, gentlemen,l well done.


  5. Happiness is a state of mind that really depends how we see the situations in our lives each day. you can have all the riches in the world but still see it as a lonely place.:*:
