Ohio rap star Kid Cudi is going with a new look. The hip-hop star went online this week to share a glimpse at how he’s donning his hair in 2020.
Kid Cudi Gets A New Look
Cudder went to his social media pages last night with the new look. In the pic, he’s rocking a few splashes of bright colors and sitting on a lawn with a dog leaning up against him.

Meet The Scotts
Friday night, Kid Cudi and longtime pal Travis Scott shocked fans with new music. The duo teamed up to bless supporters and Fortnite video game players with their “The Scotts” single.
Travis Scott and Kid Cudi have dropped a new song called “THE SCOTTS.” The track premiered prior to its release in the online, multi-player video game Fortnite. Kid Cudi returned earlier this month, sharing “Leader of the Delinquents,” his first new single since 2016. Last month, Travis Scott hopped on NAV and Gunna’s new Wheezy-produced track “Turks.” Prior to that, Scott dropped a Quincy Jones–starring music video for “OUT WEST,” his recent cut with Young Thug.

Wait, There’s More
The massive hit record is much more than Scott and Kid rapping over a standard instrumental. The hip-hop pair recruited major producers including Cudi’s longtime collaborator Dot Da Genius.
“The Scotts” isn’t the duos first collaboration, but it’s easily the one that arrived with the most fanfare. Hours before its release, the track was teased during Scott’s chaotic takeover of Fortnite. Produced by Take A Daytrip, Dot Da Genius, and Plain Pat with co-production from Travis and Mike Dean, “The Scotts” feels like a symbolic passing of the torch. Instead of Travis paying homage to a Cudi song of yore (e.g. 2016’s “Through The Late Night”), the equation is flipped: Here, Cudi follows in his disciple’s sonic steps. (Rolling Stone)
Before You Go
Social media immediately erupted with massive co-signs. Twitter went off throughout Friday with tons of support for the record.
