Horsemanning is the new planking. Or so says your new favorite crazy azn/Canuck, Andrew Huang aka Songs To Wear Pants To. Check the STWPT YouTube Channel for songs about pink fluffy unicorns dancing on rainbows, zombie ninjas, and an evil pickle on a killing spree, among other reality-based things. All of STWPT’s songs are user-requested, which explains the bizarre content. Oh yeah, there’s also a “Dark Fantasy” cover. But can he right a song about flying Jews? You’ll have to click to find out (PRO TIP: If there’s a link for it, the answer is probably yes).
On Kid Cudi’s new album Man on the Moon 2: The Legend of Mr. Rager, the Cleveland rapper experiments with arena-filling rock sounds—and in his “Erase Me” video, featuring Kanye West, Cudi completes the process by transforming into a Jimi Hendrix-like rock star.
The tongue-in-cheek performance video which revives the pompous rock days of the late-1960s shows the hip-hop duo dressing up and adopting alter egos. Cudi channels the “Purple Haze” guitar legend in an afro wig, headband, and bellbottoms, and shreds guitar onstage as glitter falls from overhead and pyrotechnics fire from cannons. West, who makes a short appearance to drop his verse, appears onstage wearing a black blazer, shades, and enough jewelry to make Mr. T pity himself. ‘Ye even sports a crown of gold laurels. Humble!
Musically, the song is a catchy rock jam centered around a massive hook of crunchy guitars. Lyrically, it’s a darker, more moody moment for Cudi, who broke out with the house music-tinged party anthem “Day ‘N’ Night.” “I keep on running / I keep on running and nothing works,” he sings.
