Pete Davidson is in my corner with this, as he once again spoke the praises of the Cudder universe on the new episode of Complex’s Open Late with Peter Rosenberg. "Best album of all time," Davidson said around the 19:40 mark in the video above. "100 percent, in hip-hop and I think in music period, I think that’s the best album of all time."
Davidson, who first got into the album during his junior year of high school, noted that Cudi is one of a select group of artists capable of truly inviting you into their brain. "Very few artists, like, open their doors up to their world to where it’s just so personal to where you feel like you know them and shit . . . It was the first time where I, like, listened to the story of an album or listened to something top to bottom," he said. "That’s a revolutionary album and I feel like he doesn’t really get the respect. All these f*ckin’ dudes that are coming out now all have his influence, for sure."
Davidson previously credited Cudi’s music with saving his life. "I would have killed myself if I didn’t have Kid Cudi," Davidson told the Breakfast Club back in 2016. "If you’re 25 and under, I truly believe that Kid Cudi saved your life."
