Kid Cudi Shares His Struggles With Drugs and Depression on #OTHERtone

“My perspective is always going to be just a little DIFFERENT.”

Kid Cudi stopped at Pharrell and Scott Vener’s Beats 1 Radio show #OTHERtone to revisit intimate subjects he’s touched on before – namely his past drug use and depression. The rapper shared on Twitter his depression and suicidal thoughts before, and we’ve written at length about it here.

On #OTHERtone he also spoke at length about drug use, citing the pressures of working with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music on his mental health:

“I’ll tell you the truth, it’s what drove me to drugs. I was like, man, I’m either going to kill myself, or I’m going to do some drugs, and I want to live. I didn’t like that I had money and success, and I had made it, and everybody that I had ever met in my life — good people — weren’t able to experience the same. And I wasn’t able to truly enjoy my success. Even though I worked hard for it, it bothered me that I had so much and my friends didn’t. Truthfully, it didn’t seem fair.”

Hear more when the show airs on July 10 at 3 p.m. EST.
