The early portion of October, presented us with a down-and-out Kid Cudi— letting us all know of his struggle with depression and suicidal urges. Opting to go into rehab, the outpour of support for Cudi was enormous. People from various walks of life displayed their support for the Cleveland artist and it also brought more attention to the subject of mental health.
Since that sad day, Cudi has made his return to ComplexCon and performed alongside Travis Scott, who sees Cudi as one of the biggest influences and role models ever. Surfin’ through the love he received, Cudi seems to be doing a lot better now — with a newly penned letter on Facebook. He thanks his fans, Travis Scott, Kanye West, Monica, and plenty more.
Travis Scott, Pete Davidson, Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, A$AP Rocky, Willow Smith, Jaden Smith, Plain Pat, Mike Dean, Josh Mond, Virgil Abloh, Victoria Justice, Pete Wentz, Monica, Wiz Khalifa, Tegan and Sara, Zayn, Raury, Scott Aukerman, Jussie Smollett, Jo Jo, Kyle, Noah Callahan-Bever, Joe La Puma, Marc Ecko, Theophilus London, Shad Moss, the whole Hot 97 crew and ALL my glorious fans across the world, Thank You for opening your hearts and extending your love and support during a troubling time. I wanted to let yall know it meant the world to me. I have nothing but love for you. Words can’t really express how much it made my heart glow. I look forward to better days. Feelin’ great and brand new. Can’t wait to run into each and everyone of you and deliver a big hug. Be ready!

P.S. If I forgot anyone I’m sorry from the bottom of my soul in advance. You’ll still get a hug.
Due to the fact that Cudi went to rehab, his Passion, Pain, & Demon Slayin’ LP was put on pause. He’s released two singles thus far: “Surfin” and “Frequency.” Hopefully we’ll be able to put our ears to some new Cudi music soon.
