Kid Cudi Covers Complex


Cudi’s back on the cover of Complex for their February/March 2013 issue. The entire story is available to read here. but here are a few highlights below. Issue hits newsstands February 4th.

On antidepressants

I took a trip on antidepressant lane for a little bit. After the WZRD song “Dr. Pill” everyone thought I was talking about molly or ecstasy. But I’m talking about prescription meds. I had just gotten a shrink. I was having an emotional breakdown with this breakup. I kept trying different pills for five months. It fucked me up. They weren’t working. It was every side effect on the bottle. I couldn’t fuck.

On not being on Cruel Summer much

I was a little disappointed. But Kanye had a vision for that. Whatever that vision was didn’t include much of me.

On his father’s burial 

We didn’t have any money when my dad died. I knew we didn’t have much, but goddamn. I didn’t know it was like that. My mom revealed to me that the casket wasn’t sealed tight. She said my father’s not there, like there’s nothing.

On being labeled a deadbeat dad

That’s what bothered me about that shit that came out [on TMZ about the child custody case]. Why the fuck would I be a deadbeat? I was like, “That’s preposterous.” I didn’t fucking have a dad since I was a kid. I couldn’t wait to have a family and pick up where my dad left off, and be there for my kid.

    Damn. And I call myself a Cudi fan. Lol. Thanks

  • Damn, no money for a proper burial, but he grew up in Shaker Heights–one of Cleveland’s nicest suburbs? Not sure about his pops, but dude’s mom was a teacher at my neighborhood middle school. Guess it goes to show the importance of having life insurance.
