Getting nasty, explicit, and loving women of all shapes and sizes has been a trademark of Too $hort for two decades now. On his own projects and seemingly every time he is featured on another track, $hort is rapping about his love for “Girls”. However, it should be no surprise that when he decided to jump on a Kid Cudi track, the simple song about “Girls” was going to have a distinct vibe.
The latest single from Cudi’s upcoming album Indicud, “Girls” continues the album’s streak of hypnotic singles. However, the subject matter on “Girls” lightens things up some. “Girls” may be the most up front Cudi has ever been about his love for the opposite sex and fittingly he decided to share this moment with the man who’s been dropping bars about women since his career began.
