    Brushes with the law and a cocaine habit sent his personal life on a turn to the dark side, something that's soon evident over the course of Mr. Rager's 17 remorseful tracks.

    The music is as consuming and intoxicating as the lifestyle Cudi describes. On two albums, the stoned-and-alone rapper has created a world built for one.

    If you wanna know what a Cudi album sounds like when he's not on drugs... Do not listen to Man on the Moon Vol. 2. If you were a follower ofIf you wanna know what a Cudi album sounds like when he's not on drugs... Do not listen to Man on the Moon Vol. 2. If you were a follower of the lonely stoner already, then this is for you. I think it is fair to say that Cudi is not the best rapper. That is not why I listen to his music. The production is amazing, and Cudi's voice is infectious and used more as an instrument than anything else. Yes, there are a few failures on the album but that is Cudi experimenting and reaching too much, which I can understand. Better that than be too safe. Then there is the standout "Mojo So Dope" where you can almost see a smile cracking on his face. While it would be nice to hear a laugh once in a while, that's not Cudi's MO. Welcome to the Cudi zone. Full Review »
