Kid Cudi appears to be on cloud nine after receiving some pretty high praise from legendary director Martin Scorsese.
The Cleveland rapper received one of the the highest stamps of approval in cinema this week when the Goodfellas filmmaker praised Pearl, which Cudi’s Mad Solar company co-produced alongside LeBron James’ BRON Creative and A24.
“I was enthralled, then disturbed, then so unsettled that I had trouble getting to sleep. But I couldn’t stop watching,” a moved Scorsese said of the gruesome horror flick. “Ti West’s movies have a kind of energy that is so rare these days, powered by a pure, undiluted love for cinema.”
Cudi was mind-blown at the famed director complimenting his work and the co-sign seemed to inspire the multi-hyphenate to further explore his talents in Hollywood. “This blows my mind,” Cudi responded on Twitter. “Martin Scorsese loves a movie I produced. Wow. Mad Solar, we here now.”
