Kid Cudi made his debut four years ago, and for reasons beyond his music, he quickly became one of the most intriguing artists to watch. In a short span of time, the Cleveland native has been through more ups and downs than most. Surprisingly, he’s managed to remain relevant throughout the roller-coaster ride. A young superstar who has repeatedly found himself in compromising positions, Cudi has mastered the art of resilience and reinvention.

With the Feb. 28 release of his rock-inspired concept album, ‘WZRD,’ featuring production from Grammy-nominated beatmaker Dot da Genius — he crafted the sound for Cudi’s spotlight-stealing hit ‘Day N’ Nite’ — fans are excited to hear the move from hip-hop into alternative rock. He’s more than just another rapper and ‘WZRD’ showcases this.

In honor of his newest musical offering, The BoomBox looks back at the rhymer-turned-rocker’s career. From his fast-paced beginnings and clouded judgment calls to his newly stated desire to make a change, these are the many facets of Kid Cudi.
