Kid Cudi has Hit-Boy nearly as excited as he is for his upcoming animated series role.
Following the release of December 2023’s trilogy film Sonic The Hedgehog 3, a new trailer for the upcoming Paramount + series Knuckles starring Cudi, Idris Elba and Adam Pally began circulating on Thursday (February 8). In the two-minute plus preview of the show, Cudi’s character is revealed as Knuckles’ sworn enemy and comes to blows with the superhero in attempt to capture him. Cudi gushed about his upcoming role on Twitter (X) in a tweet while hyping up the scheduled premiere date.
“Knuckles and I square up APRIL 26th!!! Lock in!!! #KNUCKLES @SonicMovie ADAM PALLY AND IDRIS KILL THIS!! Cant wait for u all to see the madness [peace sign emoji] @adampally @idriselba @paramountplus,” Cudi tweeted.
Hit-Boy was among the number of users who caught wind of the trailer on X and proceeded to remark bout it in a reply to Cudi.
“knuck if you buck in the trailer is hard lol,” Hit-Boy tweeted, to which Cudi responded, “Haha too dope.”
The April 26 streaming release of Knuckles is being touted as a six-episode premiere event. Kid Cudi previously wrote and released his single “Stars In The Sky” to coincide with the Sonic The Hedgehog 2 sequel film in 2022. In a sense, his participation in the Knuckles series is somewhat of a natural progression.
