Dot Da Genius x Kid Cudi

3 Nov

You’re all familiar with Dot Da Genius at this point, from fan favorites Dat New New and Cleveland is The Reason to the hit song Day ‘n’ Nite Dot’s been around from the begining with Cudi. With Cudi’s sophomore album Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager due out in 7 days you’ll hear even more work from the two as Dot produced two songs on the album “Marijuana” and “Trapped in My Mind” (both two of my favs off the album) along with the iTunes bonus “Maybe”. Looking to the future Complex’ Joe La Puma talked with Dot about his and Cudi’s rock group “Wizard”.

Complex: How did the rock album come about?

Dot Da Genius: It was pretty much the same time that we built a studio in Cudi’s crib. We did “Trapped In My Mind” and we were dwelling on it like, “This is crazy, we need to put some guitar riffs on this.” So I had my homie Brent, come through Cudi’s crib with his guitar, and Cudi did the guitar riff with his mouth cause Cudi couldn’t play the guitar. So Brent replayed it. Then Cudi picked up [Brent’s] guitar and started fiddling around with it, and I swear to you within like five minutes, he had a legitimate guitar riff. He never played a guitar a day in his life, but had a ill riff that we could make a song with.

Head on over to Complex to read the full interview.
