KYLE Opens Up About How Kid Cudi’s Music Saved His Life On TRL

TRL guest KYLE is slowly becoming the king of collabs, but Sway Calloway was most interested in a recent studio session with Chance the Rapper, Quavo, Rich The Kid and French Montana that he casually posted on Instagram. KYLE wouldn’t reveal too much about what went down, but he did share some highlights from the experience.

After that, he explained the origins of his strong bond to Kid Cudi’s music and how the rapper got him through a hard time in his life. “I felt like I found somebody who understood,” said KYLE. “He showed me the power of music. You can save somebody’s life with it.” Needless to say that meeting Kid Cudi at Coachella was the ultimate full-circle moment for him. He adds, “I was so happy to see my superhero in the flesh.”

KYLE also opened up about what it means to have his own holiday in his hometown of Ventura and the importance of giving back to his community. TRL airs on weekdays at 8:00am ET!

Kid Cudi’s ‘The Rage’ Gives The Rock A Perfect Soundtrack To Fight Huge Monsters

Kid Cudi, Dwayne Johnson, and Billy Corgan walk into a bar. After a couple of beers and a jolly old time, Johnson asks Scott if he’ll lend his talents to the Rampage soundtrack. Scott smells exactly what The Rock is cooking, then looks at the lead singer of The Smashing Pumpkins and says, “Not without my man Billy.” That isn’t how “The Rage” came about, but one can hope.

“The Rage” samples Smashing Pumpkins’ 1995 hit “Bullet with Butterfly Wings.” During the chorus, Corgan’s iconic refrain blares “Despite all my rage, I am still just a rat in a cage” as Cudi adds his characteristic hums underneath. To Cudi’s credit, the hook could’ve gone horribly wrong. Instead, the juxtaposition from Cudi rapping about being “born in the rage” to Corgan’s nasally wail compliment each other nicely.

Kid Cudi has been ramping up his appearances throughout 2018. The Cleveland singer performed at NBA All-Star Weekend with Kanye West. The “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1″ duo were are also rumored to be working on Kanye’s new album on a Wyoming mountaintop.

With Cudi so active, fans can only hope that he is also working on a new album. The last full-length project from the elusive star was 2016′s Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’. However, the Man on the Moon artist is still getting acknowledged for his overwhelming influence from artists as varied as Timotheé Chalamet and A$ AP Rocky.

Rampage, starring Dwayne Johnson, is in theaters today (April 13).
