American singer, songwriter, composer and actor Kid Cudi (real name Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi) was born in 1984 in Cleveland. Kid Cudi’s father was of Mexican-Native American descent, and his mother was African-American – there is no doubt that the tandem of these cultures had a huge effect upon the young man’s development. When Kid Cudi was eleven years old, his father died, and that became the life-changing period for the future musician. That experience found its place not only in the singer’s attitude, but also in his creativity.
Kid Cudi has been interested in music since the school, inspired by the songs of such alternative hip-hop bands as The Pharcyde and A Tribe Called Quest. As the result he even moved to New York to start working hard on his professional musical career. Thus in 2008 the mixtape titled A Kid Named Cudi saw the light and it immediately attracted attention of listeners and experienced performers: Kanye West really appreciated the young rapper’s songs and helped him to sign the contract with the sound recording label GOOD Music. Kid Cudi took part in the creation of Heartless from West’s album 808s & Heartbreak (2008) and that composition took the second place in Billboard Hot 100, while the collaboration of Kanye and Kid Cudi proved to be extremely successful: the latter was much discussed in the mass media.
The release of the singer’s debut album Man On The Moon: The End Of Day took place in 2009. The record was very well received by the experts, who noted the novel and fresh atmosphere. The magazine Entertainment Weekly entitled Man On The Moon: The End Of Day the best hip-hop album of 2009, while Kid Cudi was honored to be called one of the brightest new performers of the year. Sure that after such a strong album’s release Kid Cudi’s fans were waiting for the interesting continuation. Their expectations were completely satisfied in 2010, when Kid Cudi issued his second studio attempt Man On The Moon II: The Legend Of Mr. Rager. That long play turned out to be the worthy development of Man On The Moon: The End Of Day ideas. Lovers of original sound were really pleased: Kid Cudi managed to mix elements of hip-hop and alternative rock in a very successful way. There is absolutely no doubt that Man On The Moon II: The Legend Of Mr. Rager will be much enjoyed by connoisseurs of records with great atmosphere. You may rely upon the fact that Kid Cudi made his best to let the listener enjoy not only the interesting sound but also the ingenious lyrics as well.
