Kid Cudi, Ohio's sensational hip hop artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Aragon Ballroom!
Kid Cudi (birth name Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi) was born in Cleveland in 1984 and is a rapper, singer, songwriter, actor, model, film composer, guitarist, music video director, and record producer. His musical style is best described as left field hip hop (a genre – straddling the line between rap and electronica – that’s a producer's style rather than an MC's, with the emphasis placed more on the perfect beat than the perfect rhyme), alternative hip hop (a style that encompasses the wide range of hip hop styles that aren’t mainstream and draws from funk and rock, as well as jazz, soul, country, electronic, and even folk music), rock, dance, and underground rap (a label used to refer to rappers who are brazenly anti commercial and/or proudly independent, indifferent to the exposure promised by major label promotion and distribution). He's had a stellar career with 6 studio albums, 27 music videos, 29 singles, 1 mix tape, and he's collaborated with Jay Z, Mary J. Blige, David Guetta, MGMT, Shakira, Snoop Dogg, Michael Bolton, and many other renowned artists. He's received many accolades including a Grammy Award (for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration - with Kanye West, Rihanna, and Fergie).
Don't miss your chance to see the innovative artist who moved from an early hit single (Day 'n' Nite) to a diverse career uniting hip hop, rock, and dance influences!
