As fans wait for Kid Cudi to release his new project, which is reportedly called Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’, he treated fans to a new track at the 2016 Trillectro Festival in Maryland on Saturday (Aug. 27).
During his set, the Cudder premiered a new song called “Magic.” Over a charging beat, plucking guitars and blaring horns, Cudi raps carefree lyrics that went, “I ain’t go no issue / I’m just making my own wave, baby / I ain’t go no issue / I’m just making my own wave, baby / I ain’t go no issue.”
“Let’s go motherf—ers, y’all know what time it is,” Cudi yelled before rapping lyrics to the song.
According to Okayplayer, the song was produced by Pharrell Williams. And judging by Cudi’s performance, this is going to be one track he will love to perform once he starts promoting his new album.
Speaking of his new album, Cudi is still working on the project. So far, the 32-year-old rhymer has collaborated with Andre 3000 and Travis Barker. “Couldn’t feel more blessed right now,” he tweeted to his followers on his Twitter page. “I love [ya’ll] so much man.”
In addition, he’s working on a couple of acting gigs, including a recurring role on the hit Fox drama Empire. This season, he will appear on the show as Gram, an indie musician who is a rival to Hakeem (played by Byshere Gray).
