Kid Cudi (born January 30th, 1984) is an indie singer rapper and songwriter originally from Cleveland, Ohio whose music is a unique blend of laid-back hip-hop and rock.
His real name being Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi, Kid Cudi adopted his more manageable stage name at the dawn of his career, which really began after he moved to Brooklyn, New York with dreams of becoming a rapper. Cudi soon became associated with the Brooklyn-based record label, Fool’s Gold, responsible for the likes of A-Track, Lil B and Danny Brown.
The song that launched his rise to popularity both in the US and across seas was the namesake of his initial EP “Day ‘n’ Night,” released in February 2008. Around the same time a remix of the track from Italian electronic duo, Crookers (also on the Fool’s Gold label) made the rounds of various electronic blogs and music sites. This created a huge amount of online buzz for Kid Cudi and provided a solid fan base from which to launch his debut conceptual album, “Man on the Moon: The End of Day” towards the end of 2009. Popular tracks from the album include “Make Her Say” and “Pursuit of Happiness,” the latter of which was covered by rock artist, Lissie to popular acclaim.
A year after the release of his first album saw Kid Cudi’s original concept album extended, this one entitled, “Man on the Moon, Vol 2: The Legend of Mr. Rager.” Although this album did not reach the same success as his first (the single “Day ‘n’ Night” charted in the top five of the Billboard chart and the album was certified gold by the Record Industry Association of America), Cudi’s second work was still critically well received as it too was certified gold by the RIAA and reached number three on the Billboard charts.
In 2010 Kid Cudi announced he would join forces with Dot Da Genius (the producer on “Day ‘n’ Night”) and teach himself to play guitar to form the rock-rap band, WZRD and release their music on his own label (formed with Plain Pat and Emile Haynie), Dream On records. However, due to creative differences Dream On was dissolved and instead WZRD’s material was released on Cudi’s own label, Wicked Awesome in 2012.
His third solo album, “Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon,” in keeping with the “Man on the Moon” abstraction, was released in February 2014 with little promotion. It flew very much under the radar in comparison to his earlier success, which included another solo album from Cudi entitled “Indicud,” featuring collaborations with Haim, A$AP Rocky and the drummer from Fleet Foxes, Father John Misty.
Kid Cudi’s live performances are widely recognised as being an incredibly energised take on a hip-hop and rock show combined with a positive outlook and party atmosphere.
