Rightfully so, a fair amount of Kid Cudi fans felt duped when they heard his proper debut album, Man On The Moon: The End of Day, in 2009. It was a rather significant departure from his earlier mixtape material as it no longer focused on his rapping but instead showcased a more sing-song approach. He continued with that style for his sophomore effort, 2010's Man On The Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager, and well into his rock project with the band Wizard. But in early 2011, Cudi looked to appease his more straightforward hip-hop fans by announcing A Man Named Scott. The project, which serves as the sequel to his 2008 mixtape, A Kid Named Cudi, focuses squarely on his rap skills that had remained mostly dormant the previous two years.
