Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi (born January 30, 1984),better known by his stage name Kid Cudi (/ˈkɪd ˈkʌdi/ KID KUD-ee, often stylized KiD CuDi), is an American hip-hop recording artist and actor from Cleveland, Ohio. A rapper, singer-songwriter, guitarist and record producer, Cudi is signed under his own record label, Wicked Awesome Records and Republic Records. He first gained notoriety after the release of his first official full-length project, a mixtape titled A Kid Named Cudi (2008). The mixtape caught the attention of Kanye West, who subsequently signed Cudi to his GOOD Music label in late 2008. In 2009, Cudi's debut single "Day 'n' Nite", reached the top five of the Billboard charts. "Day 'n' Nite" was included on the mixtape as well as his debut studio album Man on the Moon: The End of Day (2009), which was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). In 2010, he released his second studio album, Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager, preceded by the release of two singles "Erase Me" and "Mr. Rager", which were released to moderate success.
In 2009, Cudi teamed up with record producers Plain Pat and Emile Haynie to launch their Dream On imprint, in partnership with Universal Motown and Kanye West's GOOD Music. In October 2010, Cudi announced that he was teaching himself how to play the guitar and that he would be forming a rock band, now known as WZRD, with his frequent collaborator and longtime friend Dot da Genius. In February 2011, Cudi announced the Dream On record label had been dissolved due to creative differences. Later in April 2011, while performing at New York City's Roseland Ballroom, Cudi announced he was launching a label on his own, Wicked Awesome Records. WZRD ultimately released their eponymous debut album on February 28, 2012.
Tyler The Creator
At the tender age 20, Tyler, the Creator has already turned the music industry on its head, reignited the nation's hunger for hell-raising rap, directed a handful of widely acclaimed music videos, launched his own clothing line, and realized a childhood dream of starring in his own sketch comedy show on Adult Swim. And all this in the span of about 18 months. Growing up in South L.A., Tyler attended 12 different schools over the span of 12 years, his boundless charisma and creativity making him an odd fit for formal spaces. Along the way, he accrued a motley crew of tight-knit friends equally driven to forge their own path. With Tyler at their helm, they became Odd Future, an army of music misfits, skate rats, shutterbugs, and weirdos who've been dubbed their generation's Wu-Tang Clan. To give his friends something to call their own, Tyler founded a record label whose every move is followed by zealous fans, drooling critics, and muckraking media hungry for controversy. With a Best New Artist VMA freshly under his belt, his Loiter Squad show premiering in March, and a handful of eagerly anticipated albums on the horizon, the mischievous, affable auteur is posed to inherit the earth. Or quite possibly, destroy it while trying.
With his goal to be the "most versatile musician to ever do it" 22-year-old Maryland native Logic's meteoric rise is driven by a massive nationwide fan base. As a self-proclaimed "compulsive perfectionist," Logic has been honing his craft since the age of 16. Initially his career blossomed after releasing his first project "Young, Broke, and Infamous." Quickly gaining recognition in his local area he was able to grab the attention of a few tastemakers. Soon after Logic inked a deal with independent record label Visionary Music Group. With a strategic marketing plan in place Logic was able to reach a much broader audience with his second project, "Young Sinatra." Soon after its release Logic was able to gain respect nationally within the hip hop community as his memorizing lyrical ability demanded an audiences attention. In April 2012 Logic released "Young Sinatra: Undeniable" under VMG, his third project which amassed 60,000 downloads in the first 24 hours. To date the free album has well over 400,000 downloads. Undeniable, propelled the young artist into the spotlight breaking through with a massive online presence. His now worldwide fan base has pushed the young rapper into the forefront of hip hop. In July 2012 Logic was successfully able to headline a sold out 25 city national tour.
