Entergalactic is all about millennial black love, music, and explosive fashion 

Kid Cudi, otherwise known as Scott Mescudi, took pains to ensure that the characters and the animation were fresh. As a perfectionist and a visionary, Scott took care of every last detail, from character designs to music to clothes. His character Jaberi isn’t wearing the same outfit every day! Barris further noted that Virgil was kind of an homage to Cudi’s brother, and he served as inspiration for the artist.

The music forms a special part of the series. It ties very beautifully and organically with the visual narratives. Apparently, Scott was feeling a disconnect with the visuals and music lately and wanted a new way to release his music. He came up with the idea to release his next, Entergalactic, with a one-episode animated series. However, Barris insisted that they flesh it out into a series. Cudi further wanted to bring black millennial love to the screens.

I just felt like there’s a void when it comes to black love stories in the industry. Scott Mescudi, Jabari,” explained Mescudi. Hence why the tracks in the series perfectly embody the tone. Enter Galactic from Man on Moon are all love songs. 

The series also features an A-list cast who are Kudi’s friends in real life. Timothee Chalamet, Ty Dolla Sign, and Jaden Smith to name a few!
