With Man On The Moon III: The Chosen One, Kid Cudi finally delivers the long overdue finale of his cosmic album series which started way back in 2009. For this release, Kid Cudi reunites with the old crew, including: Dot Da Genius, Mike Dean, Plain Pat, Evan Mat, and features new collaborators like, Phoebe Bridgers on "Lovin' Me" and Pop Smoke and Skepta on "Show Out," providing fans with a more transformative experience. The album is split into four sections, each attempting to capture Cudi's journey of self-discovery and battle against inner demons. Cudi is known to be raw and unfiltered about his struggles with depression and loneliness; his personal yet vague lyrics are able to resonate with so many fans. Tying these visions back to the album's cover art, the distinct division between the left and right sides of his face speaks to a state of mind of his internal dilemmas. While a "good rap" involves several qualities—lyrics, wordplay, cadence, and flow—that serve to create an intimate resonance between fans, Kid Cudi holds his own speciality in mushed humming (there are countless memes and videos dedicated to it) and melodic talking over solid beats produced by his crew. The humming is also forefront on the single "Tequila Shot." Instead of his usual "self development" lyrical backstory, "Tequila Shot" portrays the accumulated inner turbulence that he's failed to fight off. Kid Cudi revealed that this was one of the first tracks created for this album; it's a perfect transition into the trilogy's final chapter. © Abbie Wang/Qobuz

How Kanye West Turned Hip-hop on its Head

Over the last twenty years, Kanye West has consistently changed the course of rap music and influenced his era’s pop scene like no other. Collaborating with Paul McCartney, Rick Rubin, and Rihanna, he has both revitalized the careers of Jay-Z and Common and provided a platform for Kid Cudi and John Legend. Kanye West remains a major influence on artists such as Childish Gambino, Drake and The Weeknd. Cast yourself back to the career of an endlessly enigmatic artist.

Warp, 30 Years of Groundbreaking Music

Warp, the record label which led to the blossoming of some of the most boundary-pushing artists of the electronic music scene, such as Aphex Twin, LFO, Boards of Canada, Autechre, and Squarepusher, now has their catalogue available on Qobuz. It’s the perfect opportunity to revisit the history of Britain’s best-respected independent label.

Stax, Sounds Like The South...

Motown in the North. And Stax in the South. Two quite distinct conceptions of soul music. In the southern humidity of Memphis, Isaac Hayes, Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Booker T and a few others invented a unique groove imbibed with blues and above all gospel.
