Kid Cudi Net Worth in 2014
Kid Cudi is hailed and loved by critics for his sophisticated and clever lyrics. He has sold over 1 million albums worldwide after signing to G.O.O.D. music in 2009. Although things didn’t work out between Cudi and the G.O.O.D. music label he continued his success with Republic Records. It’s a little odd that in 2014 he seems to have forgotten who helped him catapult his career. With lyrics from Cudi’s new single “Too Bad I Have To Destroy You Now” he’s going in on former mentor and partner Kanye West.
Cudi wiggled his way out of his 5 album deal with West’ music label to have more creative freedom hoping he would reignite his career. Rumors surfaced that the real reason he left the deal was because West was an a$$hole and the two were beefing. But the young rapper Cudi publicly announced they were still friends despite his career moves. But the new single says otherwise and there seems to be even more rumors surfacing.
“Things changed, for the good
He watched my back until the world started knowin’ my name
This should be in the Bible, middle finger up to the people who don’t like you
Who have no valid reason to say they never liked you.”
Everyone is reading into pointing the finger at West. West helped Cudi earn millions from his first two albums but their relationship seems to be a bit more deeper than money. Cudi’s current net worth is $6 million while West is worth over $100 million in 2014.
He signed a $2 million deal in 2012 releasing his third studio album Indicud. In its first week of release Indicud debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200, selling 139,242 copies in the United States. As of June 16, 2013 the album has sold 219,000 copies in the United States. He has also had 2 platinum singles Day N Nite, Pursuit of Happiness and Make Her Say. In late 2013, Kid Cudi went on tour in support of Indicud on The Cud Life Tour 2013. Big Sean, Tyler The Creator and Logic were also featured on the tour. According to Celebrity Net Worth Cudi was earning $60,000 per show in 2011. His net worth today is $7 million.
29 year old rapper Kid Cudi was born Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi in Cleveland Ohio. He moved to Brooklyn to pursue a career in music after being encouraged by an employee. He lived with his estranged uncle in Brookyln. He was discovered while working at a BAPE store in New York City. It was his mixtape A Kid Named Cudi that caught the attention of Kanye West. The following year he was featured on the cover of XXL Magazine’s annual Freshmen list.
