Man on the Moon III: The Chosen is the seventh studio album by American rapper Kid Cudi. It was released on December 11, 2020 by Republic Records. Announced on December 7, 2020, it is the final installment of Cudi’s Man on the Moon trilogy of albums (which includes 2009’s Man on the Moon: The End of Day and 2010’s Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager). The 18-track album features guest appearances from Pop Smoke, Skepta, Phoebe Bridgers and Trippie Redd. Production was handled by many high-profile producers, such as Cudi himself and Dot da Genius, who serve as executive producers, along with Plain Pat, Emile Haynie, and Mike Dean, all of whom contributed to the previous two Man on the Moon albums. Musically, the album’s theme finds Cudi fight against his evil alter ego, Mr. Rager, in hopes to win back his peace and happiness. As with the previous two installments, the album is split into four “acts”: Return 2 Madness; The Rager, The Menace; Heart of Rose Gold; and Powers.

The first album since his 2015 indie rock sojourn finds Kid Cudi back behind the microphone. He communes with the drum, modulating his voice in eerie and commanding tones, savoring each syllable. Willow Smith, Pharrell Williams, Travis Scott, and André 3000 (billed as André Benjamin here) pick up valuable assists, with Three Stacks reasserting his status as a feature king, electrifying his bars on “By Design” and “The Guide.” Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’ is a cleansing journey—Cudi acknowledging the past while keeping an eye on the future.
