KiD CuDi - The Ruler & The Killer

Posted 4 years ago
Producer:
Kid CuDi
Album:
The Hunger Games Soundtrack

Most soundtracks are nothing more than an attempt to squeeze even more cash out of you than the $97 (approximately) you spent to see the movie, but every so often a soundtrack comes along that’s a must listen album in its own right: The Hunger Games Soundtrack is one of those rare albums. Boasting some of indie rocks most acclaimed groups, now that Kid Cudi’s officially launched his indie rock career with new album WZRD it’s only fitting that his new song The Killer & The Ruler are included alongside the likes of like Arcade Fire and The Decemberists. Killer & Ruler easily sounds like it could have been a WZRD bonus track, although here Cudi mans the production tip himself, crafting an even darker and more distorted guitar heavy instrumental than usual. As for his vocals, they’re delivered in his trademark slurred/mumbled/rapped/sung style, setting an appropriately “the hunter and the hunted mood”. While I can’t vouch for The Hunger Games movie (out this Friday, March 17), fans of dark rock like Killer & Ruler should find plenty more to love on the Hunger Games Soundtrack, due to drop on March 20.
