About Kid Cudi
Kid Cudi is the stage name of Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi. He’s an American actor, rapper, record producer, singer, and songwriter. The Cleveland-based superstar started his career in the early 2000s. His debut single titled “Day n Nite” became a worldwide hit that helped him achieve national success. For the past two decades, he has released thirty singles and six studio albums, most of which peaked in multiple album charts internationally.
How did Kid Cudi earn his net worth?
Releasing multiple music projects helped the hip hop superstar become wealthy by the end of the 2000s. Shortly after high school, in 2004, influenced by various hip hop groups such as A Tribe Called Quest and The Pharcyde, he moved to New York City to further pursue his career. He spent some time with his uncle Kalil and met his future mentor Kanye West. By the end of the year he developed the stage name “Kid Cudi”, and, after he impressed West with his rapping skills, he was signed to his label “GOOD Music”.
In February 2008, the rapper released his debut single “Day n Nite”, which served as the lead single of his first studio project – the mixtape “A Kid Named Cudi”. Thanks to both of his projects, he attained mainstream recognition and was able to finally earn more than $5.000. Also, that year marked his very first television appearance which took place at the annual MTV Video Music Awards. In late 2009, he released his very first studio album titled “Man on the Moon: The End of Day”, which peaked in multiple international album charts and earned multiple gold and platinum certifications, helping him win more than $100.000.
Why is he so famous?
Kid Cudi became famous when he signed with Kanye West’s label “GOOD Music” and released his debut single “Day n Nite”. Scott was born on January 30, 1984, in Cleveland, Ohio.

He began singing at the age of five and, inspired by his mother, joined multiple school choir teams where he was able to learn more about music.
Scott attended the Shaker Heights High School but was then transferred to the Solon High School. He was expelled after threatening his school principal. After he earned a GED (General Educational Development) tests, he enrolled at the University of Toledo where he studied film but dropped out after the first year. Inspired by his father, who was a World War II Air Force veteran, in his early twenties, he was planning to join the US Navy, however, his juvenile police record prevented him from doing so and he decided to pursue a musical career.
