Kid Cudi Is Not a Fan, and Here’s Why

Even if you think you’ve never heard of Kid Cudi, you’ve probably heard one of his songs on the radio or seen him act in your favorite television shows. The 37-year-old rapper, whose full name is Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi, is probably best known for his 2008 debut single “Day ‘n’ Nite.” Now that the song has been co-opted by TikTok users, he’s spoken out about how unhappy he is with the trend.

TikTok users cut up “Day ‘n’ Nite” audio, and Kid Cudi isn’t thrilled.

Kid Cudi wasn’t finished, and when a fan clapped back at him, “It ain’t that deep.” The artist explained the reason for his displeasure, replying, “I dont think im makin it ‘deep’ by tweetin how I feel.

“Day ‘n’ Nite” is especially close to home for the musician, who explained in a 2009 interview with Complex that the song was written for his uncle, with whom he had lived after he moved from Cleveland to New York. His uncle kicked him out of the house after a huge argument, and Kid Cudi wrote the song. Unfortunately, he was never able to apologize before his uncle died in 2006.
