Kid Cudi: 'Rain,' Off The 'Rap Hard' Mixtape (AUDIO)

Today we're listening to "Rain," an enjoyably sad track off the little piece of musical history Kid Cudi dropped earlier this month, the "Rap Hard" mixtape. "Rap Hard" includes 12 tracks the Cleveland native recorded in 2000/2001, at a time when he was relatively unknown, and rapping. We're liking the morose piano trill and his vivid lyrics, which detail a body going into the ground and how he just can't stop the rain. Don't worry Cudders, no one can! Stream the track below, and/or download the full album here.
