KiD CuDi Says ‘MOTM III’ Will Show Maturity, Conclude The Series


After a break from the series on his last two projects, KiD CuDi will return with the third installment of Man on The Moon with his next album. Having admittedly matured since the release of his early projects, CuDi thinks the music will reflect his growth. “Man on the Moon III will show a whole other level of maturity, and it will answer a whole lot of questions,” the former G.O.O.D. Music artist recently said in an interview with MusicConnection. “There’s a lot of missing links between MOTM and MOTM II. I also think that they were both very ignorant albums, so I think I’ll eliminate a lot of that ignorance.”

He added, “You’ll see it coming from a person who is looking at things from a more mature mindset, with more understanding and growth. I want people to be able to put this album on at different points in their lives and grow with me. This series was meant to show me grow as a man and it would not be right to do MOTM III and have me talking about driving drunk. I didn’t want people to listen and feel like, ‘Oh he’s giving us a lesson,’ rather than be entertained, but I’m not condoning that shit, that’s not cool.”

CuDi referenced his early hit “Pursuit of Happiness” as a song whose positive meaning might not be seen on the surface. “When I’m singing about driving drunk on “Pursuit of Happiness” on MOTM, you may remember that it was a nightmare. It was meant to be scary, the craziness, the fact that this person chooses to look for happiness in substances; and that’s scary, that’s a terrible combination, that’s a terrible way to go about things.”

KC went on to say, there will be conclusiveness to part three which will close out the series. “MOTM III will really be answering the biggest question: Have I found happiness? And it will lead people on in life, because there will not be another MOTM after MOTM III. It will send people off feeling satisfied.”
