Today marks the release of WZRD, the self-titled debut by Kid Cudi and Dot Da Genius’ new boundary-breaking rock band. Over here at Complex, we’re smack dab in the middle of WZRD Week, where we’re rolling out a slew of features celebrating the project. Yesterday we kicked things off with our special animated cover and an in-depth cover story “Band Of Brothers” written by our resident Cudi connoisseur, Joe La Puma.
Now it’s time to focus in on the album. While out in L.A. earlier this month, we stopped by Cudi’s home studio where the WZRD guys played us the LP and broke down the science behind each song. We caught the whole thing on video and chopped it up to create “The Making Of WZRD.” Click through the videos to hear their insight…
