Scott Ramon Seguro Mescud (born January 30, 1984), better known as Kid Cudi, sometimes stylized as KiD CuDi, is an American rapper, singer and actor. Kid Cudi was born in Cleveland, Ohio and grew up in suburban Shaker Heights and Solon, His father, a house painter, substitute teacher and World War II veteran was Indigenous-Mexican, while his mother, a middle-school choir teacher at Roxboro Middle School, in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, is African American. When he was eleven years old, Mescudi’s father passed away from cancer; his passing would have a significant effect on his personality and subsequently his music. Mescudi attended Shaker Heights High School for two years, transferred to Solon High School, and earned his GED. Later, Mescudi studied film at the University of Toledo then dropped out after a year.
He first gained major attention after the release of his debut mix tape A Kid Named Cudi. In 2009, his single “Day ‘n’ Nite” reached the top five of the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts. “Day ‘n’ Nite” is part of Cudi’s debut album Man on the Moon: The End of Day.
On his drug habit: Back on September 17, 2010 Kid Cudi admits he started doing cocaine to get through interviews, stating it was ”cause people wanted to know a lot about my personal life and I wasn’t prepared for a 60 Minutes interview every time.” Doing bumps I was able to get through the day, but then I would smoke weed to calm me down—it was the only way I could get through the day without people noticing I was doing it.”
Kid Cudi never thought it was a problem, but says he was definitely close to death a couple of times. He also states, “It took a lot for me to talk about shit like this on the album. I don’t feel like I need to explain myself to anyone besides the fans. My fans don’t believe shit until they hear me say it. And those are true Kid Cudi fans. I want them to know the story.”
My opinion: If you can’t handle the business, then get out the business before you kill yourself. Ask yourself an important question. Do I love my life? If the answer is yes then I’m going to assume that you have already admitted yourself into rehab and now you’re at home recovering and staying clean….
