This week's 'Feature'd Album of the Week' showcases Kid Cudi and his debut second studio album, 'Man on the Moon: The End of Day'. The record released late in 2009 by the labels Dream On, GOOD Music, and Universal Motown. The concept album, is narrated by rapper Common, following the release of his first mixtape A Kid Named Cudi. The album’s theme is that of a dream, beginning as he’s falling asleep, narrating through both nightmarish and pleasant thoughts, and ending as he wakes. The record takes you through different stages of partying, sorrow, and sex all while maintaining a seamless transition. With production from Kanye west and No I.D. amongst others, the futuristic ambiance combines with Cudi's mellow lyrics to make the perfect album to vibe to.
