    I really think with these newer, self-produced projects we're seeing Cud transition to more of the role he'll play in the long-term. Cudi will always have a hand in hip-hop, but it's not always going to be as an MC. Cudi is going to be a producer- the type other artists will go to when they want a sound no one else can create. He is the rap game's big brother!
