First it was Wale who boarded the Lady Gaga bandwagon; now fellow future star of hip-hop Kid Cudi has taken inspiration from the five-foot bisexual. Cudi's take on Gaga's "Poker Face" is a breezy track, built around a tweaked sample of the original song's chorus and heavily reminiscent of Late Registration–era Kanye (specifically "Gone"). The song features Cudi mentor Kanye, plus fellow G.O.O.D. Music colleague Common, with the three trying to outwit each other with references to ... erm, well, a certain sexual act. Kanye's "getting brains in the library cause I love knowledge" wins second place, while one Common line (which our well-mannered upbringing prevents us from repeating here) takes the grand prize.
