WZRD (KiD CuDi & Dot Da Genius) – Brake

On Friday, KiD CuDi announced that his project with his longtime friend, producer Dot Da Genius, would no longer be called '2 Be Continuum.' Instead, it has been renamed 'WZRD.' On Monday, Cudi took to Twitter to announce that he would be dropping off the first taste of their yet-to-be-titled album sometime that night. A little past 10 p.m. PST/1 a.m. EST, he delivered. As expected, the track, called "Brake," is guitar-driven and rock-infused, but it still maintains a similar feel to the music that fans have come to know and love from Cudi. And although Dot was the genius behind the infectious production on Cudi's hit single "Day N' Nite" a few years back, he stated through a tweet that the musical backdrop on "Brake" was a collaborative effort. Take a listen below, and let us know what you think too. The WZRD album is due out on Cudi's 28th birthday, January 30, 2012.
