Kid Cudi Discusses Jail Experience

Three months ago, Kid Cudi was arrested and detained for a domestic dispute in a NYC apartment. In the October 2010 issue of SPIN, he tells Sean Fennesey that he was left shook from the experience.

“If I’m gonna be going to jail, I’m not gonna be doing this no more,” Cudi says, adopting a childlike voice, masking the incident’s seriousness. “I had a newfound respect for T.I. and [Lil] Wayne. I only spent 15 hours in there! I was scared straight, going through the shakes, having no food, being held captive. It didn’t matter who I was in the world.”

Below, Charles Aaron gives a rave review of the Kid’s new album, Man On The Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager. Issue on newsstands now, cheapskates.

  • JERZZZ

    This nigga was in a lockup, A goddamn holding cell. That aint Jail my nigga, and if you was shakin and shit after 15 hours, You not built for it so dont act wild. Lesson learned, Cudi softer then Charmin.
    On top of that, whys this nigga talking with a child like voice? That shit is not what a grown ass man does.
    He lucky he aint go to jail, he woulda got turned the fuck out, gay or not, they woulda made him Institutionally Gay.

  • Unconform_normality

    I think dude was just going to a little withdrawl and needy ole girl…he shld jus fessed up they wld gav him sum methadone to curb it and sit his ass down some where cus a crack/coke head will annoy your ass to death. I bet he was one of them niggas waitng at the gate dying for a CO to walk by he can complain/whine abt some shit.

    LOL, this kid was in central booking and then did a few hours in county, whats to be scared of??…. I did a year and a day for Drug Possession with Intent, its county not fuckin prison. County sucks because there on your nuts all day and you have no space to fuck up, but that also makes it alot safer, outside of a few fights nothin happens in county, and even those get broken up within minutes……….Ainjt like Prison where dudes get raped in the shower

    SMH

    I would fully understand Wayne gettin the shakes in Rykers, but County??……..GTFOH, dudes a drama queen

    Dam he should of kept this shit to his self make you look more gayer…dam

  • Jimmy

    yall talk shit, but never seen shit behind those doors. a trip there because you stole from your auntie dont make you hard niggas.
    Fuck yall for being “tough” on a hip hop site, especially when tonight at the club when they mix in day n night or pursuit of happiness you’ll know every word.

    #justsayin

    also, this nigga’s gay? really?
    he aint singing about pretty boy swag.
    plus, he aint selling out making southern music when his album doesnt do well.
    Wale got boring after A.D

    For a ADHD mind, this nigga loses all attention because he aint all that ill like he claims to be.

  • BB 91

    Yall some fucking lames say kid cudi gay cuz he doesn’t want 2 go 2 jail. What, yall niggaz want 2 go 2 jail. Yall are the ones that sound gay 2 me. Hating ass fagats.

  • papology

    Nobody cares about Cudi, why yall post that shit? Musta been a slow day..

    Cudi, if your hipster ass went pussy in central, then you need to get your shit together because the only reason you are still acting up is because people let it slide, NOT because you are that dude.

    Think about that for a minute.

  • Belize

    What about my brotha Shyne?
    He served longer than Wee Gayne and Tip.
    foh cudi.
