It was not long ago that Kid Cudi was opening up a show at the Bell Centre for Lady Gaga. Now he is headlining the venue. Things change quickly in the music industry!
The 29-year-old rapper from Cleveland, Ohio has been on a steady climb since the 2008 release of his debut album, A Kid Called Cudi. The album attracted the attention of Kanye West who signed the young rapper to his label. His first single “Day ‘N Night” made it into the top 5 of the singles charts. Over his short career he has released four solo albums and sold 5.2 digital singles. He has also impressively worked with the likes of Jay Z, Common, David Guetta, Mary J. Blige, and Shakira.
Not content with just being a rapper Kid Cudi taught himself how to play guitar and formed a rock band called WZRD. The band released its first album in the winter of 2012 and it sold very well peaking at the number one position on the Rock Album and Alternative Rock Album charts. Kid Cudi has also dabbled in acting appearing on series like One Tree Hill and Brooklyn Ninety-Nine and will appear in the 2014 film, Need for Speed.
