Complex Magazine released the cover art and story for their latest issue featuring Kid Cudi on the cover in a spread titled “Born to Die”. This marks the 6th time Cudi has graced the cover of Complex Magazine.
Scott Mescudi is not your average villain. Here at Complex we’ve been following the rise of the artist who proudly calls himself “the bane of hip-hop” since 2007, and to tell the truth we still haven’t fully figured him out. With this fourth solo cover, plus one group cover as well as a digital cover, Kid Cudi now holds the record for the most ‘Plex cover appearances. There’s something about a guy who doesn’t just play by his own rules—he invents his own game, and finds a way to keep winning. Even when he seems to be down and out, this kid from Cleveland is always creeping on a come up.
The interview was once again conducted by Joe La Puma, who follows up his WZRD story on Kid Cudi and Dot Da Genius from early 2012 with one of Cudi’s most candid interviews yet. Check out the full cover below and head over to Complex to read the full cover story.
