Music Video: KiD Cudi Feat. Kanye & McLovin – “Erase Me”

Posted by T. Adeyemi on October 12, 2010

Jimmy Hendrix reincarnated seems to be the angle KiD Cudi was going for when he created the visual for “Erase Me.” For a song that sounds reminiscent of a previous era with the heavy guitar strings and steady bass line. The video helps to put the listener/viewer in the right mood. Everything from the sparkle drums, to the big hair so eloquently transpose the 60’s onto today’s generation.

Christopher Mintz-Plass aka McLovin’s appearance only helps to add that strangely cool feel to this video. The Miami Vicesque grainy picture adds to the ambiance. Director Jason Goldwatch’s seemless transitions between the performance footage and the black & white shots on the tour bus fit in perfectly. Throw in Kanye’s solid verse and you’ve got two thumbs up for creativity and design.

Look out for Cudder’s Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager to drop November 9th. What a G.O.O.D. month November will be.
