Scott Ramon Sigero Mescadi is known to the world as Kid Cadi, an American singer and songwriter. The musician's work has influenced rap culture, bringing sincerity and the ability to demonstrate their own vulnerability to it. The rapper became a trendsetter in the hip-hop genre and won a Grammy award.
Kid Cady was born on January 30, 1984 in Cleveland. He turned out to be the youngest of 4 children in the family of a WWII veteran and a school teacher. The guy has African American and Mexican American roots.
Scott lost his father at the age of 11 and has been thinking about a military career since then. But his impudent temper did not allow the young man to join the ranks of the US Navy - the dossier turned out to be tainted by criminal facts from his early biography.
His childhood was not easy: his mother almost single-handedly coped with raising four children. The father visited the children only on weekends, and after he died of cancer, it became very difficult. The musician recalls that my mother sometimes refused food in order to have something to feed the children, and slept on a small sofa, because she could not afford a bed.
Kadi decided early to leave his home and set off on an independent voyage. He defied his own fears and moved towards the unknown. At first, the guy studied cinema at the University of Toledo, but dropped out a year later. Looking for his own path, Kid was sure of one thing: he wants to change the world, energize it and inspire others. It turned out that music is the best for this.
The passion for hip-hop came to the guy while studying at the university. He was inspired by alternative music and decided to move to New York to be closer to his idols. Already in 2008, Scott released his debut mixtape A Kid Named Cudi, which gave him a new name.
The track did not go unnoticed, and the single Day 'n' Nite, released in the same year, entered the top 5 of the Billboard charts. Kanye West hurried to sign a daring newcomer with a bright own handwriting to his label, with whom Kid had a long-term creative union. The musicians did not avoid conflicts and loud quarrels, but this did not prevent them from fruitfully cooperating.
Thus, barely appearing on stage, Kadi has gained widespread attention as the most promising hip-hop musician. Even before recording his debut album, he managed to appear as a musical guest on the evening shows of David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel, become the hero of articles in Rolling Stone and Vibe, and participate in collaboration with David Guetta.
The debut in discography took place in 2009. The album Man on the Moon: The End of Day was released on September 15 and immediately soared to the 4th line of the Billboard 200. This album set the bar high, and it is still called the strongest in the musician's work. Already here the paradoxical features of Kadi's music were manifested: the ability to transmit hope for light through dark emotions.
Kid was loved for his sincerity and genuine feelings: he was not weak to talk about his own fears, addictions and turn his insides inside out. His next disc was eagerly awaited, and it was released in 2010. The record's sales in the first couple of weeks passed the $ 200,000 mark.
In 2011, at the Grammy Awards, Kid was able to touch the coveted award: the track All of the Lights, released in collaboration with Kanye West, Rihanna and Fergie, won the prize as the best rap collaboration.
Kadi continued to create, but his state of mind left much to be desired. In 2016, the rapper posted a post on Facebook, where he shared that for a long time he suffered from prolonged depression and the urge to commit suicide. Kid himself did not expect the wave of support his publication would generate.
Kid Cudi was upset that Kanye West didn't notify him about using his vocals on “Guilt Trip.”Posted by
