Kid Cudi x Arsenio Hall: Says Brag Rap "Is Holding Us Back As Black People." Talks About Battling Suicidal Thoughts & Performs "Internal Bleeding" [Video]

 

Video After The Jump

 

Kid Cudi stopped by the Arsenio Hall Show to promote his new album, Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon.

 

The former G.O.O.D. Music artist also had a lot to say. During his interview with Arsenio, Cudi discussed his car collection, wanting to help kids dealing with loneliness and suicidal thoughts because he's been battling both for the last 5 years, the surprise release of his album and the current state of hip hop.

 

"I think the braggadocio, money, cash, hos thing needs to be deaded," Cudi said. "I feel like that's holding us back as a culture, as black people. That doesn't advance us in any way, shape or form. We've been doing that same thing for years now. It's been like four decades of the same old bullsh*t. And I feel like if you're gonna be an artist, there's a time when you have to embrace the responsibility and understand that the power of music is something so special. And to be able to do it on this magnitude where you reach millions of people. It's like, why not use that for good? Why not tell kids something that they can connect with and use in their life?"

I don't f*** with a lot of this n**** music, but knowing he actually uses the f****** brain is head, I'm always willing to give his new s*** a chance.

Only thing holding hiphop and "black culture" back is YMCMB.
