Cudi is on his own trajectory now, for one reason or another he isn't going to have that team behind him (Plain Pat, Emile, Kanye, etc.) and he himself is not going to deliver anything close to MOTM. With that being said, the new song is TRASH. It is is what it is. I'll forever bump MOTM series but I won't be checking for any of his new stuff.
He's tweeted numerous times that he was working with Pat & Emile on MOTM3. Unfortunately he's just fixated on using this rock sound.
But I agree with you as far as his new music moving forward. I have zero desire to listen to it if it's rock influenced.
