Who is Kid Cudi?
Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi, better known by his stage name Kid Cudi, is an American hip-hop recording artist and actor from Cleveland, Ohio. A rapper, singer-songwriter, guitarist and record producer, Cudi is signed under Republic Records and his own imprint, Wicked Awesome Records. He first gained recognition after the release of his first official full-length project, a mixtape titled A Kid Named Cudi. The mixtape caught the attention of American rapper-producer and record executive Kanye West, who subsequently signed Cudi to his GOOD Music label in late 2008. Cudi's association with West and the GOOD Music label, led him to prominence.
In 2009, Cudi's debut single "Day 'n' Nite", reached the top five of the Billboard charts. "Day 'n' Nite" was included on the mixtape as well as Cudi's debut studio album Man on the Moon: The End of Day, which was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America. The End of Day also features the singles "Make Her Say" and "Pursuit of Happiness", both of which fared well on several music charts. In 2010, Cudi released his second studio album and the sequel to his first, Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager. The sequel was preceded by the release of two singles "Erase Me" and "Mr. Rager", which were released to moderate success, with "Erase Me" peaking at #22 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album itself peaked at #3 on the Billboard 200, surpassing it's predecessor in both sales and peak position. Very much like like his debut, The Legend of Mr. Rager also went on to be certified Gold by the RIAA. In April 2013, Cudi released his third studio album Indicud. The album, primarily produced by Cudi himself, peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart, becoming Cudi's highest-charting album on several charts as well as that one. The album spawned the singles "Just What I Am", "Immortal" and "Girls".
