Another Hollywood star has fallen in love with Kid Cudi's new Indicud album in the form of Jay-Z's famous actress pal Gwyneth Paltrow.
Paltrow gushed over the new post-G.O.O.D Music release and joked about having an opportunity to collaborate with him.
"I really like the new Kid Cudi album, Indicud. I love him," Paltrow said. "I think he's awesome and so complicated and so fascinating. I'm not cool enough to duet with Kid Cudi. I lost all my cred now. Between The Avengers... [laughs]." (Entertainment Weekly)
Cudder made sure to publicly acknowledge the co-sign by hopping onto his Twitter page.
"Ok I can die now. Like, seriously. So f*cking flattered!! :) http://popwatch.ew.com/2013/05/09/gwyneth-paltrow-must-list/ ...," Cudi tweeted May 10th. (Kid Cudi's Twitter)
Prior to the LP dropping, "Walking Dead" television star Steven Yeun boasted about Cudi's newest work.
"I've heard Cudi's new album. It's crazy. I met Cudi at a friend's party. The conversation started as a shared admiration of each other's work (which is definitely a cooler story for me). The conversation ended with an invitation to his studio to listen to his new album (which is definitely an even cooler story for me.) This is not something I'm particularly accustomed to. I don't roll through people's studios and listen to their yet-to-be-released albums, so I didn't really know what to expect. What if the album sucked? I'd have to sit there in his studio and say something like, "Oh that was dope! I loved that part where you used the toms and then also the hi-hat and said that thing about gold chains!" Then I'd have to excuse myself to the bathroom and get the hell out of there. But you want to know what I did instead? I wrote a f*cking story. That's right. I wrote a story while I was listening to the album." (Complex)
Last month, Kid compared Indicud to music icon Dr. Dre's The Chronic 2001.
"That's like one of the best hip-hop albums of all time," Cudi said in an interview when asked why he compared his LP to Dre's 1999 album. "Yeah. The way Dre did it, he put you into a space and a realm. Like, a n*gga from Ohio, like myself, hearing that sh*t, I felt like Cali was the place to be. You know? Just Dre's whole thought process, how he's just so thoughtful, from the beats to every little meticulous sound and I was inspired by that. You hear that in my production." ("Los Angeles Leakers")
