For the uninitiated, Cudi took a similar approach on his rap-rock album WZRD in 2012. Cudi decided to move away from rapping over dope beats and instead picked up a guitar and started singing. The results were definitively mediocre, according to 10 critic reviews at Metacritic.

Speedin’ Bullet to Heaven comes at a perfect time for Cudi as his pop culture exposure has hit an all-time high. Cudi starred in this summer’s Entourage movie and recently took over for the great Reggie Watts as the bandleader on IFC's Comedy Bang! Bang!
