For a generation of hip-hop fans, Kid Cudi’s debut album Man On The Moon: The End Of Day, became an instant classic. Not only that, but the introspective and occasionally vibrant musings of a young Scott Mescudi went on to prove immensely influential on the soundscapes to follow. No stranger to exploring avant-garde production, Cudi’s first solo foray did an excellent job in analyzing the artist on a cerebral level, painting a vivid self-portrait detailed to the flaws. And while Man On The Moon yielded plenty of iconic singles, like “Day N Night,” “Enter Galactic,” and “Make Her Say,” some of the most brilliant moments emerged within the “Nightmares.”

Eleven years removed from its initial release, there is something fascinating about the slow-burning and haunting fourth track “Solo Dolo.” The first of three “Nightmare” chapters, this one opens on an appropriately eerie note. “Listen good, I don’t have nobody,” sings Cudi, his vocals raw. “But what I might feel are the sounds of sanity, hoping what I hear loops itself continuously.” As the cinematic track builds, new elements expand the scope; sinister string hits add urgency to the second verse, futuristic synthesizers and brooding strings add layers to the third.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Listen good, I don’t have nobody
But what I might feel are the sounds of sanity
Hoping what I hear loops itself continuously
Then I won’t be afraid, no, no

[Chorus]
Oh, whoa, whoa
Why must it feel so wrong
When I try and do right? Do right
Oh, whoa, whoa
Soaring through paradise
When I’m closing my eyes
I’m Mr. Solo Dolo
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh

[Verse 2]
Look at me, you tell me just what you see
Am I someone whom you may love, or enemy?
Am I speaking for you and yours, or someone else?
I need some answers, yeah, yeah

[Chorus]
Oh, whoa, whoa
Why must it feel so wrong
When I try and do right? Do right
Oh, whoa, whoa
Soaring through paradise
When I’m closing my eyes
I’m, Mr. Solo Dolo
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh

[Verse 3]
My world turns, flippin’ the bird
To the ones who figure
Me outcast, no, not the duo
Back in Shaker Heights where they knew who
Do’s little brother was a strange one, boo-hoo
Cry me a river, hater, look who
Traveled out an igloo
Cold, cold world wasn’t fit for me at all
Look at where I stand at, tall
Clutchin’ my Kid Cudi bizzalls
Mute motherfuckers back home, quick pause
Gargle on my mayo
Look at me, I bet I’m the one you think to fail
Floating in my mind, no sail
Ahoy, ahoy

[Verse 4]
Listen good, I don’t need nobody
This is what you feel, are the sounds of insanity
Hoping what I hear loops itself to finish me
No, I won’t be afraid, hey, hey

[Chorus]
Oh, whoa, whoa
Why must it feel so wrong
When I try and do right? Do right
Oh, whoa, whoa
Soaring through paradise
When I’m closing my eyes
I’m Mr. Solo Dolo

[Outro]
Why must it feel so right
When I know that it’s wrong? It’s wrong
When will I ever learn
From the words in my songs?
I’m Mr. Solo Dolo
