Kid Cudi Bio

After signing with Kanye West’s label and the releasing his hit song Day n’ Nite, 27-year-old Kid Cudi became a household name. But there’s more to this Cleveland-born rapper/actor’s story than meets the eye. Find out more about Kid Cudi in his Kidzworld bio!

Cleveland Kid

Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi, who we now know as Kid Cudi, grew up and went to high school in Cleveland, Ohio. His father was a Mexican-Native Second World War veteran, as well as a house painter and substitute teacher, showing already that multiple talents run in the family. His mother was an African-American middle-school choir teacher, which is probably where he inherited his musical genius from. When he was just 11 his family suffered a great tragedy: his dad passed away from cancer, deeply affecting the way Kid saw the world.

Movies to Music

You may not believe it since we all saw him as a talented rapper before we saw him act, but Kid Cudi went to the University of Toledo to study film. After just one year Kid wasn’t sure the film biz was for him and decided to try his hand at something else he was talented at ... you guessed it, rapping! He had been rapping since the end of high school after being inspired by alternative rap groups like A Tribe Called Quest and Pharcyde, and after his first year in university Kid decided it was time to pack up his bags and head for to the Big Apple to show people what he could do with his rhymes.

We love Kid Cudi, Kanye and Common in Make Her Say. See what you think!                                                                             

East Coast and Kanye West

Once he had moved to Brooklyn, Kid Cudi released his first mixtape called A Kid Name Cudi with street wear company 10.Deep, which was available for free online. It didn’t take long till the mixtape reached the ears of veteran rap star Kanye West, who decided immediately that he had to sign the talented young star. Kid was featured on Kanye’s album 808 & Heartbreak singing along with Kanye on Welcome to Heartbreak and also helping write songs on the album. Cudi was soon named an artist to watch by Rolling Stone Magazine, and were they ever right! By the start of 2009 Day n Nite had been released and it quickly blew up the charts. By fall of 2009 Kid Cudi had released his first full length album Man on the Moon: The End of Days and after that everyone wanted to work with him, from indie rock bands to chart-topping rappers.

How to Make it in America

It wasn’t just musicians eyes that Kid Cudi caught, he also caught the eye of actor/director Mark Wahlberg, and he was soon cast as an actor in the hit HBO series How To Make It In America, showing everybody that he truly is a creative jack of all trades. But don’t worry, Kid hasn’t traded in his microphone for a script for good. He has been planning to form a new band this year, rumoured to be called 2 Be Continuum, he is also planning to try a new genre of music and make a rock album as well as a new mixtape. We’d say that he’s definitely found out “how to make it in America” and we can’t wait to see what he’ll come up with next!

Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
