I remember working there my first couple of weeks in the same uniform cause I didn’t own anything prior to being hired.
So it was a dream come true to be able to work at the store I dreamed of shopping in one day. If he wasn't there to let me stay with him those first few months, there would be no Kid Cudi.
In 2015, he was the bandleader on the IFC series, Comedy Bang! His father was of African-American and Mexican-American descent, while his mother is African-American. There was this white dude in his 40s who was cool as shit and would tell me, "You're funny and people like you.
Kid Cudi was a prominent songwriter and featured artist on 808s & Heartbreak, with "Paranoid" and "Heartless" being released as singles, while "Welcome to Heartbreak" charted as an album cut and peaked at number 87 on the Pop 100.
Kid Cudi's first television appearance was at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, alongside Travis Barker and DJ AM.
-ee, often stylized Ki D Cu Di), 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).
I discovered what BAPE was when I moved to NY, the store opened up shortly after I moved from Cleveland.
I was always a fan of the brand but it just wasn't something I could afford back then.
Initially a rapper, Cudi has since added singer, songwriter, record producer, guitarist, music video director and film composer to his repertoire.
As of 2017, Cudi has released six studio albums as a solo artist.
The mixtape caught the attention of Kanye West, whose then-manager Plain Pat, had introduced Cudi's music to him, subsequently leading West to sign Cudi to his GOOD Music imprint later that year.
Kanye West first called upon Cudi to reference hooks for American rapper and mogul Jay-Z, and while in the studio Cudi and West went from working on The Blueprint 3 (2009) to West's R&B-esque 808s & Heartbreak (2008).
In February 2014, Cudi unexpectedly released his fourth album, Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon, exclusively to digital retailers with no promotion.
