Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi, better known by his stage name Kid Cudi, was born on January 30, 1984 in Cleveland, Ohio. His zodiac sign is Aquarius and his ethnicity is African-American. He grew up in Shaker Heights with his mother and two siblings. He was raised by his single mother, who struggled to make ends meet for the family. As a young teen, he began listening to rap music and soon developed an interest in writing and rapping as well.

Cudi attended Shaker Heights High School but dropped out of high school before graduating due to poor grades. After dropping out of school, he began working odd jobs while pursuing a career in music. In 2004, he started rapping under the name “Kid Cudi” which was based off of an inside joke between him and his friends. His first mixtape gained attention from Kanye West and led to him signing a record deal with G.O.O.D Music in 2008.

In 2009, he released his debut album “Man on the Moon: The End of Day” which earned him critical acclaim as well as commercial success. The album spawned several hit singles including “Day N Nite” which reached number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. He followed this success with “Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr Rager” in 2010 which featured collaborations with artists such as Mary J Blige and Cage. Later that year, he released his second studio album “WZRD” which reached number 4 on the US Billboard 200 chart and number 1 on the US Top Rap Albums chart. Since then, he has released several more albums that have been received positively by both fans and critics alike including “Indicud” (2013), “Speedin Bullet 2 Heaven” (2015) and “Passion Pain & Demon Slayin'” (2016). 

Kid Cudi has also enjoyed success as an actor appearing in projects such as HBO's series How To Make It In America alongside Bryan Greenberg as well as films like Need for Speed (2014) alongside Aaron Paul. He is currently signed to Republic Records where he continues to release new music today
