The Knux and Kid Cudi-Run Video

I owe you all an apology. When I got my hands on this track back in July, it seems I enjoyed it so much that I quite simply forgot to share it with you.

A fantastic blend of pop, alternative and hip-hop, the track feels like one of the better collaborations released this year, largely thanks to the effortless synergy on show here, with Cudi and The Knux are almost stylistically indistinguishable from one another. Their respective crossover styles blend seamlessly throughout, as a soundscape of addictive guitars, crashing percussion, solid verses and a frighteningly-addictive hook deliver an upbeat, genre-defying track.

The energetic video works well for the track, enhancing that synergy by presenting the collaboration as an entire band, amidst scenes of the leading lady going about her day of doing drugs, not paying for taxis and raving with The Knux. Worth a watch, and definitely worth a listen.
