All eyes are on KiD CuDi. The New York rep by way of Cleveland, OH stormed through the city, like most out-of-towners do, in search of getting out his dreams. Today he does so, with the release of his debut album, Man On the Moon – The End of Day.
I had no choice but to notice Scott Mescudi in the summer of 2007.

There’s no denying, at the time even I took my surroundings for granted. Being on a first name basis with the mogul-next-door, Marc Ecko; so did my company on that eventful night.
