5 Musician Doppelgangers That Need to Collaborate

BY TER STAFF

There quite a few musicians who look like they be brothers or sisters, and even some that look practically identical. You pretty much can’t watch a Toro y Moi video on YouTube without seeing at least a few people make a Donald Glover (Childish Gambino) related joke in the comment section. So we wondered what it would be like if some of these doppelgangers got in the studio and actually made a song together. Check out our list of the five musician doppelgangers that need to work together, with some that could maybe happen one day and some which definitely aren’t as likely.

Although the unreleased song was recorded for Cudi’s latest album, it sounds like classic Man on the Moon Cudi. Produced by Cudi and Dod Da Genius, the track samples Ratatat’s ‘Sunblocks’ and you can stream the empowering track below.

Throwback Thursday Review: Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager | Kid Cudi

BY EVAN VOGEL ★★★★

On Thursdays we review albums that are considered “classic”. No matter your personal thoughts on the man, or his music for that matter, Kid Cudi is an artist with the best of them. From the very beginning of his musical career, he has experimented with sounds that were foreign to both the mainstream and underground communities. His psychedelic, electronic beats were capable of providing equally uplifting and depressing soundscapes. For a bit of reassurance, Kanye West himself, said that Cudi was his “favorite artist living today”. His first major label release, Man On The Moon: End Of Day, was an album that gave hip-hop this first taste of ‘different’. Creativity abound left fans clamoring for Cudi’s promise of more. This came in the form of a direct follow-up, Man On The Moon 2: The Legend of Mr. Rager. From the moment you press play, the sounds grab you and maintain their grasp just as easily Cudi’s character seems to lose his as the story progresses. That aspect of story, in fact, is what made this five-act epic so enthralling. So often hip-hop artists release albums bereft of any cohesiveness and you are left feeling detached from the music. This album was so much more than just a collection of songs deemed good enough for an LP; they combine to form a narrative and expertly portray a musicians’ struggle with fame and reality.
