With two albums reportedly planned for this year, Kid Cudi has been whetting his fans' appetites with occasional, surprise one-off releases. In March, Cudder dropped "The Frequency" and followed that up the next month with the Mike Will Made It–produced "All In." Overnight, he continued the new releases with "Goodbye," premiered by Complex.
Unlike those previous two, which brought us the melodic, crooning Cudi, "Goodbye" offers a more typical rapping approach, with a harder, more thumping beat to match. For the production, the Cleveland native linked with his longtime collaborator and WZRD partner Dot da Genius.
The track opens with an iconic sample from Juice, the 1992 Tupac Shakur–starring movie: "You right, I am crazy," Pac's character, Bishop, says. "But you know what else? I don't give a fuck. I don't give a fuck about myself. You remember that, motherfucker."
Clearly, though, Cudi does give a fuck about delivering new music to fans.
