A couple of weeks ago the Complex Magazine crew headed out to the desert in California to shoot Kid Cudi and Dot Da Genius for a digital cover for their new rock project WZRD. In the accompanying interview, they speak about how the duo started recording music in Dot’s family’s apartment when Cudi was evicted, and how Dot’s parents family took Cudi in. Cudi also speaks candidly on a number of topics including: his daughter; Ben Breedlove, the young man who said Cudi was his favorite rapper in a video shortly before he died from cardiac arrest; Jamie, the subject of his song “Teleport 2 Me, Jamie” and his “Pink” tattoo that represents the troubled fictional character Pink Floyd came up with in “The Wall.” You can read the full story at Complex.
