Kid Cudi is on the cover of the October/November edition of ComplexÂ Magazine. TheÂ eclecticÂ rapper gave his thoughts on his addiction to cocaine…yep, the nose candy…. and made some negative comments towards rapper Wale, but we will save that for later this week.
Complex: How heavy did the drug use get?
I started doing cocaine to get through interviews, â€™cause people wanted to know a lot about my personal life and I wasnâ€™t prepared for a 60 Minutes interview every time. Doing bumps I was able to get through the day, but then I would smoke weed to calm me downâ€”it was the only way I could get through the day without people noticing I was doing it.
Did you ever feel like you had a problem?
I never thought it was a problem, but I was definitely high-fiving death a couple of times. It took a lot for me to talk about shit like this on the album. I donâ€™t feel like I need to explain myself to anyone besides the fans. My fans donâ€™t believe shit until they hear me say it. And those are true Kid Cudi fans. I want them to know the story
