KiD CuDi - Marijuana (directed by Shia LaBeouf)
Kid Cudi is back with the video for “Marijuana”–recorded back before he came clean–directed by none other than Shia LaBeouf of Transformers fame. The song (off last year’s Man on the Moon II LP) is more in line with the ill melodies and half-awake choruses that we’ve come to expect from the lonely stoner. But come to think about it, for a rap song there is still a lot of psychedelic guitar going on and not a lot of rapping. The video appears to be an arty handheld travelogue through the hash-cafes and hoe-houses of Amsterdam, so if the song’s title was not enough indication we can safely assume just from the location that Cudi and Shia had taken a few baggies of that Optimus Prime to the face by the time they flicked the camera on.
