Kid Cudi Returns with New Animated Feature 'Slime'

The rapper-singer made his animated film debut in 2020 with “Entergalactic.”

Kid Cudi and animator Jeron Braxton are teaming up for a new animated film titled “Slime.” The dystopian project will mark Braxton's feature directorial debut, and the "Day ’n’ Nite" rapper – real name Scott Mescudi – is a star and producer. 

According to the summary, the film is set “In a not-too-distant but all-too-dystopian future, Muna, an optimistic but broke young woman, signs up for a paid medical trial. Hope turns to horror when she is unknowingly injected with a foreign creature’s slime and begins to have visions she does not understand and unleash destructive powers she cannot control.”

“Hunted and desperate, Muna kidnaps Glenn (voiced by Cudi), a lab worker from the mega-corporation who injected her. Together, they go on a terrifying odyssey in search of refuge and a cure. But is it already too late to stop her from evolving into a monster, a post-human savior, or something in between?”

Cudi shared his excitement about collaborating with Braxton, telling Deadline, “I’m always looking for what’s new and always trying to elevate what we know about music, film, TV, and animation.” 

“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.” 

Penned by “The Boondocks” writer Brian Ash, who also serves as executive producer, the script promises a fusion of classic monster movie elements and contemporary video game visuals. It's described as both “wickedly satirical and intensely scary, with a trippy edge.” It’s unclear whether production on the film has started. 

Cudi previously ventured into animation in 2020 with Netflix’s “Entergalactic,” which earned him his first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Animated Program.”
