Kid Cudi, Is That You?

March 18, 2014  |  

Strolling through a photo gallery while talking with the ladies of our sister site StyleBlazer this morning we stumbled upon this surprising, and nearly unrecognizable, photo of the man we’ve come to know as Kid Cudi. The 30-year-old Cleveland rapper ‘s hipster grunge style has been as recognizable as his flow, which is why when we saw the pic above we had to do a double take and ask, Kid Cudi, is that you?

Looking more like a black Ken doll/game show host than a rapper, we can see Cudi, born Scott Mescudi, has had some work done to his teeth to achieve the perfect grin displayed above. After thinking it over a bit, we assume this transformation is apart of the talented artist’s foray into serious acting. After stints on a few shows like “One Tree Hill” and “How to Make it in America,” Kid Cudi has landed a major gig as part of HBO’s upcoming series “Entourage,” which is slated to air in 2015.

We might also be able to attribute Cudi’s handsomely refined new face to the fact that he gave up smoking the green stuff two years ago for the sake of his daughter and frustrations over being associated with stoner/drug culture. That, we can certainly say is a good look. But what do you think about Kid Cudi’s changed appearance overall? Are you feeling it or nah?
