When someone asks about my Valentine’s Day, I run off a long list of exciting things. Not to boast or anything but it included ‘Brunch’ with my family at our favorite hangout, Heist Brewery in NODA, a day party at Apostrophe Lounge in Uptown Charlotte, with the crew of Redefine Fame, and then Davita & I zipped off to The Fillmore Charlotte in Avid Exchange NC Music Factory to see Kid Cudi.
There’s no greater opportunity in LIFE than getting the chance to hear an artist perform–particularly, one that you really enjoy. And, CUDI was LIVE AND IN LIVING COLOR!
Kid Cudi performed for nearly two hours in front of a sold out crowd, HIT-AFTER-HIT! As fans continuously screamed, ‘CUDI, CUDI, CUDI, CUDI,’ he kept the crowd on ‘high’ with his amazing energy.
As a solo artist, collaborator, and producer, Kid Cudi is one of the most in-demand artists in all of hip hop, and he’s at his best delivering his raps on stage. Born and raised in Cleveland, Kid Cudi has evolved into one of the Midwest’s most prominent hip-hop artists since he began experimenting with music in his teenage years. Early in his career, Kid Cudi was signed to Kanye West’s GOOD Music, and he soon released his debut, the influential 2009 album “Man on the Moon: The End of the Day.” The album’s singles “Day ‘n’ Nite” and “Pursuit of Happiness” paved the way to mainstream success for this GRAMMY Award-winning hip-hop artist. Kid Cudi continues to expand the boundaries of his work with more recent esteemed releases, like “Indicud” and “Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon” which are all well loved and received by ALL, especially the alternative rap scene.
In a sea full of Cudi fans, one couldn’t help but enjoy the strong hippie scent and, personally, I think it added an element of AWESOMENESS to the show. I must say that the Cleveland native put on an amazing show! We at SPREAD look forward to his return to the ‘Queen City.’
I managed to balance my time with friends and family. And, with that, it’s safe to say that I had the best Valentine’s Day ever.. Until next year that is…
