Recently, a Twitter user managed to dig up Kid Cudi’s old MySpace profile and shared it in a tweet that has since gone viral.
Kid Cudi’s passion for music was already apparent back then, when the rapper was only 22. In fact, he mentions that he was already aiming for Grammys even as a MySpace rapper.
