Kid Cudi: “That was the first album I ever bought. I was in the fourth grade and I just thought that 'Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm' song was so silly and so funny. I just got a crack out of it. So I ended up buying the album to see what the rest of this shit was like. I ended up falling in love with the whole album.
I definitely heard that at such a young age that I was pretty sure that album sent a ripple effect in my musical taste.
“It was the first album that I remember buying, loving, and listening to from beginning to end. The way he wrote his lyrics and the melodies of the songs, it was just something that I never heard before.
“That was definitely when my ears started to get trained to like any and everything as long as it had a beautiful melody and something real with it. I definitely heard that at such a young age that I was pretty sure that album sent a ripple effect in my musical taste.”
