Kid Cudi "REVOFEV" (2010)
Album: Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager
Producer: Plain Pat, Mike Dean
Kid Cudi was knee deep in dread on his debut album, which is why "REVOFEV" sounds so refreshing as one of the first songs on his sophomore effort. The record exudes a cautious optimism that gets you ready for the world and all of its ugliness. This isn't one of those fuck-shit-up songs, like others on the list, but it will get you focused.
