After exceeding most people’s expectations sales-wise with his questionable WZRD LP, Kid Cudi proved his music is definitely still in demand with his legion of ragers. Well, that audience could very well expand even further with “The Ruler & The Killer,” the latest track from Cleveland’s most disturbed rapper, which will be featured on the soundtrack to one of this years biggest movies; The Hunger Games. Hype from the film is already making plenty of noise, so this hard-rocking, self-produced song should fit right in. Actually, this feels as if Cudi really narrowed in on the flick’s survival of the fittest theme and hit the concept smack dab on the head, even going the extra mile with the use of live instrumentation.
This may not quite be The Man On The Moon you were hoping for, or your cup of tea specifically, but the quality from the Kid is there nonetheless.
