Watch Kid Cudi's Inspirational TED Talk

Scott Mescudi (aka Kid Cudi) ventured back to Shaker Heights, Ohio to deliver a moving life excerpt at his former high school. 

“At one point I didn’t feel like I was smart enough to pass that test, or I didn’t feel like I was smart enough to go this college. With music it was like, nobody’s going to take that from me.” – Scott Mescudi

He touches on his ever-curving road to success – and what that really means to him. Cudi also touches on where he draws inspo from, his journey to NYC, and what his daughter offers him daily. It's surprisingly impactful.
