Man On The Moon 3 will also reprise its Acts, narrating, cinematic formulaic approach with appears by Trippie Redd, Skepta, Phoebe Bridges, and the late-Pop Smoke. The album is executive produced by familiar Cudi collaborators Dot Da Genius and Dennis Cummings. The album’s synopsis is as followed:
“In the last 10 years, Scott Mescudi has been through hell and back. After feeling like his world was over, he found hope and overcame the darkness that was plaguing his life.
But happiness isn’t forever. What he thought was peace turned into a nightmare. He finds himself lost dealing with the same pain he had not felt in years, in one night, he must face himself again and fight to win back his soul from the evil Mr. Rager. Featuring epic production from the legend Dot Da Genius, Take A Day Trip, and the return of the team that helped start it all: Plain Pat, Emile Hayne, and Mike Dean, fall back into the world and twisted mind of Kid Cudi for the final installment in the man on the moon trilogy.”
