Parable vs. Mac Soto turn it up from their usual lovestruck tunes with their latest song, "Too Far (Boom-Bap)." Backed once again by Mac Soto's production, "Too Far" (Boom-Bap)" showcases an uptempo beat and mixes boom-bap energy with a nice break swing. The song is an underdog's anthem, serving as a tribute to all artists, dreamers, and lovers maintaining true to one's self and fighting against the odds. More to come from Parable vs. Mac Soto, including a music video for an upcoming single, leading up to their debut project later this year.

A Complex exclusive cover story featuring rapper, singer-songwriter and actor Kid Cudi appears on Complex.com at http://www.complex.com/music/2012/02/kid-cudi-dot-da-genius-cover-complex-wzrd-week .

Hip hop star and actor Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi, aka Kid Cudi, discusses his daughter Vada, his Pink Floyd tattoo, his feelings about Breedlove video and his new found fame.
 
On his daughter Vada now that she’s talking:
“She’s so cool. It’s the most wild thing. I love her to death, and every time I’m around her it’s a crazy experience, because she’s growing and learning right there in front of you.”
 
On the Breedlove video:
“It was just such a powerful video, man. I’ve never been affected by something like that, ever. It really hit me hard.”
 
Would you say that you’re high off life for the first time?:
“I was just feeling it. I was in a place where just living my life was enough thrills for me, just going out the house. That was what was good for me.”
