Born Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi, the 26-year-old Ohio native is most famous for his 2009 hit, “Day ‘n’ Nite,” a collaboration with Crookers that landed in the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts. It was also featured in his debut album, Man on the Moon: The End of Day, and has garnered about 26 million views on YouTube. Cudi was also featured in Kanye West’s album, 808s and Heartbreak, co-writing megahits such as “Heartless,” and singing with Kanye on “Welcome to Heartbreak.” He has also been a musical guest on David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel and is now starring in the HBO comedy series “How to Make it in America,” produced by Mark Wahlberg.
