“Learn from this, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Hell does have an exit, and I found it. For those who are still looking for a way out, I left the door open and I’ll be waiting for whoever wants to grow with me.” – Kid Cudi
The Man on the Moon is back, Kid Cudi. He has been a very hot topic on the internet as of late, due to his addiction problems and finally getting the help he needs. Cudi has always been pretty open about his alcohol and drug abuse for years now and what he is battling with. He has talked about his mental health issues as well: how he has suffered from depression and suicidal thoughts for a long time. In a 2013 interview, he spoke about how his fast and unexpected fame drove him to his abuse of many substances:
“I had a problem, I think with any addiction you have to be ready to make the choice, whether it’s cigarettes or anything. You have to just commit and you just have to stick with it. I stopped everything cold turkey. When I had my cocaine problem I stopped cold turkey, I didn’t go to rehab, I don’t believe in these things. Some people need the extra help, not me.”
Last October, three years later, Kid Cudi checked himself into rehab. He shared this information with the world via Facebook on his decision to check himself in for his struggles with depression and suicidal urges. Below is the attached link to his post:
This decision to get help by checking himself into rehab went viral. Countless artists appraised him for seeking help and gave their support. Stars who admit or reach out to others that suffer from mental illnesses make us, “normal” people realize that we are all one. Cudi’s honesty and ability to be open with everything shows strength, even if he questions his own strength at times.
“Always say how you feel because you never know if you’ll get the chance again.”
– Kid Cudi
It has been known that some of the most creative/talented minds suffer from illnesses like depression or mania. However, when artists are at their very lowest points in life… This is sometimes when their most creative ideas spark, like a beautiful flash of lightening on a warm summer night. Artists have been know to isolate themselves when they are in a certain mindset, “their zone” or whatever it may be called.
Kid Cudi took time away from the limelight, walked into rehab, and in his own way isolated himself… In the best way possible. So the news of Kid Cudi releasing an album this month is really exciting news, and people around the globe will be checking it out. Titled, “Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’”.
On December 16th the release date for the digital version is to be expected, followed by physical copies available the following week on December 23rd. And news has it- there will be some epic features on this album. Such as André 3000 (credited as Andre Benjamin), Pharrell, Willow Smith and more. Many fans are excited about this very, verysoon release. Cudi is inspiration and has said so many inspiring things that really make you think. Below is an attached recorded interview and quote from him that hits you right in the soul… Whether or not the release of his new album is a hit or not, Cudi is still one gifted artist, with a lot of depth and wisdom.
“People say that bad memories cause the most pain, but it’s actually the good ones that drive you insane.” – Kid Cudi
