Kid Cudi leaps into action in the Jeremie Rozan-directed mini-film for “Mr. Rager,” a cut off last year’s Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager. The rapper-actor, who will return for the new season of HBO’s “How to Make It in America,” fights evil as he battles an underground gang in the graphic visuals (blink and you’ll miss the Kanye West cameo at 4:23). But after defeating all who cross his path, he’s no match for his biggest enemy.
Cudder recently took to his blog to assert ownership over his raging lifestyle. “There’s only one original Rager, and thats me,” he stated. “I started this ‘rage’ shit. The lifestyle, the term, the whole new meaning and definition of the word. Understand and be clear, IAM THE RAGER, IAM FOREVER. When you hear ANYONE talking bout ‘rage’ or ‘raging’, know where that shit originated. Guess ima have to do some trademarkin’. ACCEPT NO SUBSTITUTES. WE LIVE THIS SHIT!”
