7. Brothers – prod. by Kid Cudi

Another song that features an artist doing both the production and the rapping (he even directs music videos at times). Kid Cudi, who has been blurring the lines between rap and other genres ever since he hit the scene, decided to show his hand as a producer for his third solo album, Indicud, and produced some pretty great tracks. Really dig the percussion on this number, as well as the slight beat change up/simplification for the hook. Kid Cudi has been in the news lately for beef with his mentor, Kanye (he’s also called out Lupe and Drake recently), so here’s hoping he returns to making this type of music soon and isn’t afraid to venture into production again.
