Kid Cudi before the Fame

article by true-magazine

Before Kid Cudi got signed to Kanye’s G.O.O.D Music, things were a little rough for him. Kid Cudi was born Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi on January 30, 1984, in Cleveland , Ohio, and grew up in Shaker Heights and Solon. He is the youngest of four children. He was kicked out of high school for threatening to punch the principal and had plans to join the U.S. Navy, but it ultimately didn’t work out because of his criminal record. Cudi later earned his GED and attended the University of Toledo studying film for one year before dropping out.

Jobs he held:

Ohio Restaurant
While working at a restaurant in the outskirts of Ohio, a co-worker at the time told him; “You’re funny and people like you. You need to move the fuck out of Ohio…”

Dean and Deluca
A grocery store that Cudi described as the worst job he’s ever had.

BAPE Clothing
He applied at the clothing store in New York a few times before getting hired. This is where he first met his mentor, Kanye West.
