Brothers
by Kid Cudi (featuring A$AP Rocky)

Songfacts®:

  • This track features contributions from Cudi's friend and frequent collaborator King Chip and Harlem MC A$AP Rocky. Cudi made the decision to go with a minimal hook and let Rocky dominate the track. "I felt like that was a perfect beat for A$AP to get on there and speak some truths and talk to the younger generation, because he's in a place where a lot of kids are up to him and Kendrick," the Indicud MC told MTV News. "I just wanted to hear him say something a little bit more thoughtful, and he did that - he showed up. I was blown away by his craftsmanship, his professionalism and his overall mojo."
