Now, Kid Cudi tickets are sought after for his unique style and catchy lyrics.
Before he emerged as the musical figure Kid Cudi, he attended high school in Cleveland where he explored his love of acting. By the end of his time there he began to pursue rapping after listening to The Pharcyde and A Tribe Called Quest. He ended up leaving school, earning his GED, and studying film at the University of Toledo. That direction lasted a year before he dropped out and headed to New York to pursue his music career.
He worked at a clothing store while working on his music, eventually releasing A Kid Named Cudi. The mix tape impressed Kanye West, who signed him to his label, GOOD Music, in 2006. The signing justified the risks Kid Cudi took.

Cudi also took up songwriting duties for the album as well, penning portions of Heartless and Paranoid. The success of Welcome to Heartbreak introduced the music world to the artist and suddenly he was appearing in British music magazines and turning up on set at BET.
More cameo appearances would follow before he would be able to drop. Kid Cudi appeared on Solange and Black Eyed Peas before the release of his chart climbing single Day ‘N' Nite. The song tracked well on the U.S. and European charts. The debut album, Man on the Moon: The End of Day released on September 15, 2009.
