Kid Cudi Teases 'Man On The Moon III': 'The Trilogy Continues'

5301

The Man on the Moon has returned. Kid Cudi got social media talking on Monday morning (October 26) when he teased Man on the Moon III with a cinematic visual and a tweet that read simply, “#motm3.”

Cudder rose to prominence in 2009 when kicking off his career with Man on the Moon: The End of Day and quickly followed-up with The Legend of Mr. Rager sequel the following year. Now, the fan-favorite series appears to be getting revived more than a decade later.

The album’s trailer features scenes from a young Cudi during the first Man on the Moon era. He’s then shown standing on top of a mountain overlooking the city at night while staring into a glowing blood moon. “The trilogy continues….Soon,” the spooky clip ends without a concrete release date.

Cudi hinted at possibly launching the MOTM trilogy during the outro to his “The Adventures of Moon Man & Slim Shady” collaboration with Eminem. The track debuted inside the top 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 in July.

“The adventures of Moon Man & Slim (Ah)/Yes, who want it with them?/The trilogy continues/Serving niggas, yes, see what’s on the menu (Yeah),” he raps.

The Cleveland rhymer’s last solo album Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’ was released in 2016 while the Kids See Ghosts joint project alongside mentor Kanye West dropped as part of a string of G.O.O.D. Music releases in 2018. He’s also expected to unleash his Entergalactic LP with an animated Netflix series in 2021.

Cudi made a guest appearance last week on Ty Dolla $ign’s star-studded Featuring Ty Dolla $ign album. The duo connected for the woozy “Temptations,” which is co-produced by Hit-Boy and Skrillex.
