Kid Cudi

Over a decade ago, Kid Cudi dubbed himself “The Man on the Moon” with good reason.

Since 2008, the Grammy Award®-winning multi-platinum trailblazer and trendsetter has cast his influence over hip-hop like a lunar glow. Celebrated by everyone from Kanye West to Travi$ Scott, his 2009 full-length debut, Man on the Moon: The End of Day, has earned double-platinum certification from the RIAA. Cudi followed up with the platinum selling 2010 album Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager. Recognized as a vital force in pop culture and music, 2012 saw him win “Best Rap/Sung Collaboration” for “All of the Lights”at the GRAMMYS®. Indicud captured his highest chart entry on the Billboard Top 200, bowing at #2 and yielding a platinum-selling favorite “Just What I Am”a year later. Selling over 20 million singles worldwide, his influence has only expanded exponentially with time.

2016’s PASSION, PAIN& DEMON SLAYIN’ marked a fiery return to form. “Baptized In Fire” [feat. Travi$ Scott] generated a staggering 39 million streams in six months. His sixth studio offering also drew praise from Complex, Billboard, Pitchfork, and The Fader, while XXL placed it among the “50 Best Hip Hop Projects of 2016.”He scorched late night TV with a powerhouse performance of “Kitchen” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon accompanied by a string orchestra.

He reunited with West on the 2018 psychedelic hip-hop-rock opus KIDS SEE GHOSTS. The union of these two innovators sent shockwaves throughout the culture. Not only did the record bow at #2 on the Billboard Top 200, but it garnered widespread acclaim from Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, XXL, Vice, The Guardian, and Entertainment Weekly. As the project took off, Cudi also graced the cover of Billboard.

Beyond his prolific musical output, he’s also appeared on the big and small screen. Not only would he lead HBO’s How to Make It in America and IFC’s Comedy Bang! Bang!, but he also starred in Need for Speed, Entourage, and more.
