The track heavily samples a hook from ‘The Strangers‘ by indie-rock darling St. Vincent. The track is on the darker side, featuring eerie guitars and heart pounding beats as Cudi raps, ‘I am the maniac/I am the ghoul/I’m in the shadows in the corner of my room.’
‘Maniac’ is not yet officially confirmed to be part of the tracklist for his sophomore full length album, ‘Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager‘ out November 9th.
