Kid Cudi’s new video for “King Wizard” is pretty minimalist – in a sweet red blazer, dude paces and grooves to the track around an empty street. It’s a cool song, and we like the archival-footage vibe (what with the decaying gold frame and the edited decomposing film), but we wish a song this braggy had a video to match. Check it out.
