Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi (born January 30, 1984), better known by his stage name Kid Cudi (/ˈkɪd ˈkʌdi/ KID KUD-ee, often stylized KiD CuDi), is an American recording artist and actor from Cleveland, Ohio. Cudi first gained major recognition following the release of his first official full-length project, a mixtape titled A Kid Named Cudi (2008). The mixtape caught the attention of American rapper-producer Kanye West, who subsequently signed Cudi to his GOOD Music label imprint in late 2008. Cudi has since gone on to launch his own record label imprints, the now-dissolved Dream On and current independent label, Wicked Awesome Records.
Thoughts on Songs with Kid Cudi
2 years ago
Some may say this is ironic but, it's really not. The key word here is "Pursuit". On Monday Kid Cudi checked himself into rehab for depression and suicidal urges. Although the song is about happiness you can feel the struggle. Even in the tone of how he sings it sounds a little sad. I guess he has always been searching for happiness and thought he would get it once he became successful but, "Everything that's shine ain't always gonna be gold (hey)"
