Cam'ron, Vado and Kid Cudi, "You're Killin' Me"

So the talk in the rap world this week is that Cam'ron and Jim Jones called radio personality/blogger Minya "Miss Info" Oh to say that they were sitting in the same car. Former best friends who led the Harlem rap crew the Diplomats to stardom in the early '00s, Cam and Jim had not been together and chummy since falling out four years ago. While fans wait for the official Dipset reunion, though, Cam has a good new song with his new protege Vado and Cleveland's favorite rapper/singer/HBO star, Kid Cudi. Interestingly, Vado disses tight blue jeans in his verse ("Wear a 34/but those skinny legs ain't fittin' me/Never!") and Kid Cudi (that's him in the picture with the video) often wears tight blue jeans! This takes on greater significance in light of the financial reform bill going to the floor in the senate, and the news that the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is so much worse than we thought.

I am listening now – what is the general opinion of Kid Cudi?

I am going to assume my opinion is the opinion of everyone:

Kid Cudi is kinda mopey but still knows how to write a hook, and his insistence on post-hip-hop collaborations makes up for any concern over his skinny jeans.

He's quite charming dueting with Shakira.

He was good in that one song with Kanye and Common that sampled "Poker Face" sort of.

I just wish he would do more actual rapping so I could tell if he is an actual good rapper.
