The two MCs spit on a subdued track produced by Dot Da Genius and Eminem. “Yeah, it’s been a few minutes, but I’m back (Uh) / You are not all dealing with the same boy (No)”, rhymes Cudi. “I had a bit of a knock, then I made the transition (Yeah) / New attitude mixed with this pure brute (Aw). ”
Eminem then goes with an extended verse. “So if you believe in God (yeah) / Bob your head and just nod your head in agreement (yeah) / They say time is unbeaten / I’ll be the first to beat it (yeah)” , he begins.
Shady even casts shade on quarterback Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints, “I don’t make grass (No) / Purp or skinny (Nah), it’s Tunechi (Yeah) / C’est La New Orleans (Yeah), fuck Drew Brees (Yeah). ”
The song comes just two days after Cudder’s daughter Vada announced the track on social media. The record also comes two months after the Kid Cudi Man on the Moon: the end of the day the rapper asked Em for help in a tweet, writing, “@Eminem rap God. Help! ”
Eminem never responded publicly to Cudi, but it’s clear the two were in talks after the Cleveland native posted his tweet. “The Adventures of Moon Man and Slim Shady” is the first song the two rappers released together.
In April, Kid Cudi released a song in collaboration with Travis Scott called “The Scotts”, which became No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 ranking. Before that, he released his first song in two years when he released “Leader of the Delinquents “. The songs have proven that despite Cudi’s sporadic break-ups in hip-hop, the 36-year-old rapper hasn’t lost a step. In 2019, Cudder told fans that they can expect new music this year as well as a new album called Entergalactic. So far, he remains true to his word.
