WZRD – Kid Cudi for FAULT Issue 10

FAULT Issue 10’s music cover star Kid Cudi was quite tricky for FAULT writer Ahmed Mori to catch – mostly due to filming commitments for the video of his new single, premiering it on American late night TV and working as a co-director for other video projects. Oh, and apart from all that, Cudi and his band-mate Dot da Genius were also putting the finishing touches on their eponymous album, WZRD.

With their incomparable chemistry and an unlimited reserve of can-do attitude, Cudi & Dot certainly came up with something worth listening to…

" “We’re just risky motherfuckers. That’s how we are by nature,” said Cudi. “We’re bold motherfuckers. It definitely transcends into the music. It’s an attitude. The key is pushing forward. It’s evolution. Changing people’s perspective about how music is supposed to sound." "Photography by Michael Casker

…for the experimental rapper [Cudi], the band WZRD, “Means freedom. Finding that power within yourself, the commander of your own destiny, being a leader, taking shit to another level, elevating your mind and seeing beyond what’s in front of you. It’s not rocket science; it’s a spiritual thing. There is nothing a wizard can’t do. The power is in your hands, literally,” Cudi explains.

WZRD was started by Cudi & Dot in 2010 as a rock band (the name was inspired by Black Sabbath’s track ‘The Wizard’) . After various name changes, the duo released their eponymous debut album in late February 2012. The album peaked at #1 in the US charts and has been receiving rave reviews.
