Last month André 3000 made a surprise appearance during an L.A. Reid interview and ended up talking a little bit about what he’s been into lately. He shone some light on artists like Young Thug, Future, and Cleveland’s very own Kid Cudi. When asked what he was listening to lately he responded first with “Kid Cudi’s last album, Speedin’ Bullet.” While many people have given Cudi’s album some tough criticism, André 3000 referred to it as “the best thing to come out in a long time.” Will his interest in the album cause people to be more open to it’s diverse craziness and see the artistry that is present there? Probably not. But it’s cool to see a legend like OutKast’s André 3000 praise a Clevelander for just doing his thing. Watch the full video below.
