Long time fans of Kid Cudi will remember that the rapper first got his start on the once popular social media site MySpace. The rapper posted his breakout hit “Day ‘N’ Nite” on the website.

Kid Cudi’s music grabbed the attention of members of the music industry, including producer Emile Haynie, and DJ A-Trak, who gave the rapper his first record deal.

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.

The rapper recently noticed the viral tweet, and had a very positive response to it. He proudly declared that everything he mentioned in the bio, he has already achieved, including the Grammy.

Cudi also shared the story behind his username, “Tubbz,” explaining that he did not want to give out his real name while meeting women at parties. Cudi also joked about how the nickname led people to believe that he used to be chubby.

The rapper is currently working on his eighth studio album, “Entergalactic,” which will be accompanied by a Netflix series.
