Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Kid Cudi, like Kanye West before him, has been steadily releasing leaks from his upcoming

Man On The Moon 2: The Legend Of Mr. Rage

of late to build up anticipation. A new leak today finds the rapper collaborating with another recent up-and-coming in the hip-hop game, Cage.

But, really, what's most interesting about the track is it's beat, which, in a surprising turn, samples the song "The Strangers" from Dallas' very own Annie Clark (aka St. Vincent). Give it a listen and download after the jump.

(Hat tip.)

Bonus mp3:

Kid Cudi -- "Maniac (feat. Cage)"

An interesting use of St. Vincent's talents if nothing else.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
