The actor and former G.O.O.D. Music artist answered questions on the popular social media site, Reddit, Thursday morning. Here’s what Kid Cudi had to say.
The full thread from Kid Cudi’s Reddit “Ask Me Anything” thread is here, but if you just want the top 10 questions and his responses, have a look below.
QUESTION #1 from tnarref: Somebody asked ScHoolboy Q in his AMA (Ask Me Anything) a few weeks ago if he’d like to work with you. He said that he does, and suggested that he tried to contact you and that you didn’t even answer.
What do you think about Q and were you aware that he tried to contact you to work on something (if that really happened of course) ?
Kid Cudi: Yeah – I like ScHoolboy Q a lot. Unfortunately I don’t recall ever getting a request, but I’m definitely down to work with him whenever! I had to clear the sample to “hands on the wheel” and I was really blown away and flattered that he used my words in his song. So yeah, I rock wit’ him.
QUESTION #2 from Futurebucks: Is Cleveland still the reason?
Kid Cudi: Of course.
Kid Cudi: Way more mature. There’s a lot of growth that’s happened. I’ve experienced a lot and survived a lot. There’s a level of maturity that wasn’t there before.
QUESTION #4 from lebronjamess: You got any jams in the Need for Speed soundtrack/movie?
QUESTION #5 from DatKnewKnew: Seeing as you’ve shown a desire to expand outside of hip-hop, what would you say your favourite non-hip-hop album is?
QUESTION #6 from WZRD10: I’m gonna be excited to see you act in Need for Speed. What brought you into acting?
Kid Cudi: It’s always been a passion of mine. My first real gig was How to Make It [in America]. The creators saw a vision for me and saw as a part of the show early on. It fell into my lap in a good way. Things have been working out organically.
Kid Cudi: Ha ha ha! ZERO!
Kid Cudi: It really wasn’t any different other than the fact they were two separate genres. One was an action film one was a dramedy, so to speak. There weren’t many stunts to do. Every day was pretty relax opposed to Need for Speed where the intensity was heightened – I was in a helicopter doing aerial acrobatics and in Goodbye World I was housed in a cabin in sweats. Haha.
QUESTION #9 from DirtyStanBoozie: Has there ever been anyone you’ve worked with that you were nervous about meeting?
QUESTION #10 from TouchingNipples: What is the Kid Cudi mission statement?
Kid Cudi: I don’t necessarily have a mission statement. “The truth shall set you free” is my motto and I apply it to all aspects of my life.
