Kid Cudi has come a long way in the last few years. Before signing with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music, Scott Mescudi was playing backyard barbeque shows in exchange for weed. By the end of 2009, he was attacking audience members for throwing wallets onstage. Perhaps Mr. Solo Dolo was simply trying to convey that he’s no one’s charity case—or maybe the pressure of three Grammy nominations has got him brimming mad. If any lesson can be taken from Cudi’s kaleidoscopic 2009 debut, The Man On The Moon: The End Of Day, or its sequel, The Legend Of Mr. Rager, it’s that Cudi is a misunderstood character, trapped inside his own head.
