Kid Cudi has shared a new trailer for his upcoming Netflix project, Entergalactic, showcasing the romantic storyline woven into the show.
The rapper – real name Scott Mescudi – teamed up with Kenya Barris through their Mad Solar and Khalabo Ink Society production companies to bring the long-form visual to life.
Following an initial trailer shared in June, the new preview looks more at the romantic plot, seeing the character Jabari, an ambitious artist, as he moves into his dream Manhattan apartment and falls for his next-door neighbor, Meadow. The cast includes Cudi, Jessica Williams, Timothée Chalamet, Ty Dolla $ign, Vanessa Hudgens, 070 Shake, Jaden Smith, Teyana Taylor, Macaulay Culkin, and more.
Elsewhere, Entergalatic follows Jabari as he tries to balance success and love. “Entergalactic is everything I’ve always wanted to do, create a long-form visual companion to an album,” Cudi said in a statement.
“It all started with the music, which helped bring this storyline and these characters to life. Entergalactic is unlike anything I’ve ever done, certainly my most ambitious project to date; I can’t wait for you to finally experience it.”
The project will be accompanied by an anxiously-awaited full-length album – Cudi’s 10th – of the same name. Both the record and the show will be released on September 30. The star previewed the record with the single “Do What I Want” in June.
