Kid Cudi talks Hip Hop; “Artists today are holding us back as a culture” on Arsenio



Rapper Kid Cudi appeared on the Arsenio Hall show last Friday, exclaiming that “There is a time that you have to embrace the responsibility” of being a rap artist for the masses. Cudi also expresses his take on his own music in the interview stating, “My mission statement from day one was to help kids from feeling alone, and stop kids from committing suicide.”

Love him or hate him, Kid Cudi’s fans stick by his side no matter what, and the fact that he relates with them so deeply is a big factor in his success. Here is the video of Cudi explaining his point of view.

Without a doubt, Kid Cudi has been adding new elements to the rap game since the release of his mixtape A Kid Named Cudi in 2008. With his departure from Kanye’s G.O.O.D Music label last year and his newfound sobriety, Cudi seems to be generating a lot of attention. On his latest album (releasing in 2015), Cudi sets out to defy gravity yet again with the third installment of his album series, titled Man on the Moon: The End of the Day.
