Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi or also known as KiD CuDi was born on January 30th 1984. KiD CuDi is an American alternative hip-hop recording artist, singer-songwriter, guitarist, record producer and actor from Cleveland, Ohio. KiD CuDi gained much attention after his mix tape in 2008 called “A Kid Named Cudi.” In 2009, his single “Day ‘n’ Nite ended up reaching the top five of the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts, which was his most famous song so far. The reason why I picked KiD CuDi is because I can relate to most of his music. I like his smooth and mellow words and rhymes. I prefer his music over the other artists out there because I am not a fan of the upbeat hip-hop. With his type of music I can relax, close my eyes and listen. KiD CuDi’s music is influenced by many different genres. For instance as a kid growing up he listened to Pink Floyd and also some small alternative hip hop bands such as The Pharcyde and A Tribe called Quest. I’m a KiD CuDi fan because I like his laid back and mellow music. He is known to write psychedelic music and advertise the use of illegal substances through most of his songs. His music is soothing to me and nice to relax to.
