It’s true that music knows no boundaries. So, it should come as no surprise that KiD CuDi and Michael Bolton have found their way to the studio together. In an interview with RapFix, Cudder shares some background information on how he linked up with the famed singer.

“My mom is a huge fan so I grew up hearing him in the household and he did the song with The Lonely Island that I thought that was genius,” Cudi explained. “I love those guys’ work and seeing what they did with Michael they really utilized him, but I was like man I wanna utilize him in a way where I’m not tryna make a joke or anything–I just wanna use the mightiness of his voice in a way that’s never been done before.

I reached out, he responded immediately and we were able to get him in the studio for like three hours and most of the time he spent talking and just dropping science,” he revealed, smiling as he relived the moment. “It was really cool to have his energy and just to be around him because he’s such a legend, so down to earth and cool. He was like the uncle I never had.”

Michael Bolton appears on CuDi’s King Chip-assisted Indicud track, “Afterwards (Bring Yo Friends).” Indicud is out now.
