AMP Music Minute: AMA Awards Get Bigger, 50 Cent Talks Drugs And Alcohol (Or Lack Thereof) And Kid Cudi Makes A “Maniacal” Short (page 3)
Mr. Rager is getting maniacal. [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kid Cudi[/lastfm] has been taking his time on his upcoming album; even going as far as forgoing a mix tape in order to put more focus on his album.
I guess making movies doesn’t count as a distraction, though, and for that, we the fans are very thankful.
Cudi recently released a short film called “Maniac” that is not a music video at all. However, it is based on the song “Maniac” from his second album Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager.
Kid released a statement about the video in which he revealed he will be involved in scoring the piece, among other things, “MANIAC is a short film inspired by the song. It is not a music video and it has no reference to the song content. It will be scored by Dot and I as a film with all new music. Directed By Shia LaBeouf for Grassy Slope and Ragin4Dayz Productions.“
His third album, Man on the Moon III is still expected in 2012.
The entire short film, “Maniac”. Parental Supervision is advised.
