"Bigger Than You" is the first song that Kid Cudi and producer Emile ever did together. It almost ended up being the opening track on Man On The Moon, but leaked under a different name and never made it on the album. In our 2009 interview with Emile, he gave some background on the song, which was recorded sometime in 2007.
He had in his head what he wanted to start the album with. Like way back it was a song called "Bigger Than You," which some people might of heard because it leaked. It was a really dope record. "Bigger Than You" was actually the first record me and Cudi ever did together. It was on the first day that we met, we cut that song. Once we cut it, he was like, "That's the intro to my album." It stayed that way for a while, but that record was cut a long time before the album was ever done, so eventually it kinda faded out.
Finally, four years later, Emile gives us the go-ahead to put "Bigger Than You" out there. Check it out below.
