An interesting story about Kid Cudi
Prior to his success, Kid Cudi’s life was tough. He was raised by his mother in a lower middle class in Cleveland. According to Spin, his mom raised him by teaching. His dad, who was a house painter, left the world due to cancer in 1995 when he was a kid. He then decided to move to New York City to pursue his music career. At that time, he only had $500 in his pocket. That was the only thing that he had in addition to no friends and no job.
Even after he is successful now, Kid Cudi said that he cannot enjoy his life to the fullest because he still thinks about his past and it is such a shame for him when he gets a successful career and a better life while on the other hand, his friends who also used to be with him and shared the same experience, do not get the same chance as him.
