Kid Cudi has been my favorite artist for the past few years and Pursuit of Happiness fully encapsulates what he is as an artist. Although he is rooted in the deep existential rootings and the spirituality of living, he also realizes that one can only be happy when pursuing their dreams and doing what makes them truly, deeply happy. Pursuit of Happiness is the best of both worlds.
I didn’t think an artist other than Cudder could realize the full potential and the meaning of this way of life or furthermore, this song, but Lissie has proven that she understands it enough to make it her own. Check out this cover of one of my favorite songs, it truly is spectacular.
