Kid Cudi is making more waves in the film industry. The rapper has taken on the roles of star and director in the upcoming animated film, Slime.
Announced on Tuesday, Dec. 5, Kid Cudi has teamed up with animator Jeron Braxton and writer Brian Ash, known for their work on The Boondocks, to produce and write the script for the new animated feature, Slime.
The film, which will be produced under Cudi’s production company, Mad Solar and Alex Lebovici’s Hammerstone Studios promises to be a classic monster movie with a dystopian-horror twist. Described as “wickedly satirical, scary as hell, and trippy AF,” Slime is set to push boundaries and captivate audiences with its unique visuals and storytelling.

Jeron is a powerhouse creative at the forefront of culture, pushing boundaries with everything he does. I’m grateful to have him on the team and am ready to see him bring Slime to life. Mad Solar, we here.”
