Where Are They Now?: 2009 Freshman Recap
By now Kid Cudi is a brand name. Besides his collabos with Kanye West and Jay-Z, the 27-year-old “wizard,” as he dubs himself, already has two albums under his belt: the gold-sellingMan on the Moon: The End of Day in 2009 and Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager. in 2010. Then, last year, Cudder made his acting debut in HBO’s dramedy How to Make It in America. Quite the feat for a former American Apparel employee. He recently split from longtime production collaborators Plain Pat and Emile, and is forming a new yet-to-be-named label with beatmaker Dot Da Genius.
