Five Artists We’d Like to See Signed to Kid Cudi’s Wicked Awesome Label



Kid Cudi has been a big fan of MGMT for a long time – the neo-psychedelic band has been his inspiration for most of his earliest works.

“MGMT inspired me to take my mind on a whole new creative plain. What I think is the most magical thing about MGMT is when you listen to it, it sounds like these dudes found a time machine and went back to the late ’60s and early ’70s and made this album and came back,” he said in a recent Complex interview.

Cudder collaborated with them on “Pursuit of Happiness” for his album, Man on the Moon: The End of Day. He even sampled MGMT’s “Congratulations” on his newest single, “Immortal,” which is one of the singles off his forthcoming album.

“Ok, so here’s what I did. I took one of my favorite bands MGMT’s song “Congratulations”, put it in reverse, sped it up, and produced over it,” he said over Twitter. “Thank You so much to MGMT for clearing the sample. LOVE YOU GUYS!!”

With such a close relationship, we wouldn’t be surprised if Cudi approached the duo to become part of his new venture.
