Kid Cudi is undoubtedly one of the most well-known and established rappers in the Hip-Hop world. He also has a penchant for making style statements and Cudi did just that recently.
Kid Cudi was seen wearing a floral dress during his “Saturday Night Live” performance and this essentially broke the internet and set the social media world abuzz.
According to a report by Page Six, Cudi didn’t wear the floral dress just to make a statement. In fact, the rapper actually wore the outfit to pay homage to late 90’s rocker and Nirvana band leader Kurt Cobain.
The rapper, 37, rocked a maxi-length, spaghetti-strapped floral sundress at one point, and a rumpled green cardigan at another, while performing songs from his latest album on the NBC sketch show. Each was a clear tribute to the late Nirvana frontman, who committed suicide at age 27 on April 5, 1994. “Kid Cudi pulling the ultimate Kurt Cobain tribute on #SNL on the week of his death. @KidCudi all about love and suicide prevention and awareness!!!,” one fan tweeted. The grunge legend famously wore a floral dress on the 1993 cover of now-defunct British magazine The Face a year before his death. Cobain also memorably donned a grubby, cigarette-burned green cardigan during Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged concert in 1993
During the SNL broadcast, Cudi also remembered the life of late “Saturday Night Live” star Chris Farley via a t-shirt. Kid Cudi has certainly shown that while he is an accomplished musician in his own right, Cudi has not forgotten those who have come before him and we certainly approve of the tributes Cudi paid during his recent SNL performance.
