Kid Cudi Arrested on Drug and Violence Charges

Kid Cudi has been arrested and charged after an incident in New York City on Friday (June 11).

The 26-year-old musician “repeatedly pounded on and kicked [a woman's] downtown apartment’s door, ultimately using his bodily force to tear it off its hinges,” according to People.

The Guardian reports that Kid Cudi was in possession of liquid cocaine at the time of his arrest. It’s not yet clear whether he was intoxicated at the time.

Kid Cudi‘s last incident with police was in December, when he reportedly punched a fan in Vancouver during a concert.

A thug with money is still just a thug.

Lock this idiot up.

Cudi, Cudi, Cudi… It is always a shame to see people conform to these negative stereotypes, especially when they are in such of a position of influence. I’m not a racist but I’m going to talk about race because it’s important. A famous black man being arrested for cocaine and violence is such a statistic it’s ridiculous. He doesn’t have anyone to blame but himself.

Actually this behaviour is no suprise considering his video for Day N Nite had him working in a store and hallucinating after smoking skunk. Glorifying drug use, what a moron.

Now I finally see an artist on Just Jared I really dig and like and it would be for something like this. :(
-
He is talented, creative, intellectual and cute :) kind of like Lupe Fiasco. I hope Cudi starts to leave those drugs alone especially “liquid cocaine” wth. I thought all he messed with was weed/kush.
-
I hope he gets it together you can tell he has something else internally going on with him. Now I want to listen to “Heart of a Lion” and “Solo Dolo”.

What on Earth is liquid cocaine?

Another idiot rapper being an idiot. Money does not equal brains or class. Are you listening Kanye?

I’ve never heard of liquid cocaine! And I’m a Doctor. I think they meant Methadone, which is the legal opiate synthetic formulation substitute for heroin. Not known for it’s enlivening properties. If anybody can inform us better please do!

Scott! Why?!?! Im so disappointed. I thought he just smoked weed too.: (
He is my favorite artist. Ill still love his music no matter what. The fan he punched I understand because he deserved it for throwing stuff at Cudi, but this is all bad. : / SO much talent, and he is so different from any other artist. Its sad. I still wish him the best of luck, and I really hope he drops the cocaine. <3333

I don’t get how the guy/girl above me says that a famous black musician who’s caught with cocaine is a ridiculous statistic. Does he/she actually think there is something legitimate about that statement or just looking for excuses to be racist? because having a skin color does not make you prone to drug addiction. There’s no proof he was even on the drugs lol. To me it’s not the worst thing, you expect him to be this perfect person and accuse him of not being a role model like your the perfect people. But he made a lot of sacrifices as a musician, and you guys don’t know his story. It’s easy for musicians to get caught up in drugs but as far as I see, he still has more positive influence. This incident is like something out of a Jim Carey Movie lmao. But I feel he’s had a wake up call and now he’s going to come out of it with a new perspective.
No way any of you guys would ever even influence people the way he did, that’s why you’re putting him down like the world’s worst offender. When really you just don’t understand him or the situation he’s been put in. Your public scrutiny is for fake people who only put bad influence in the world anyway. You guys are cavemen with keyboards, wake up to the real world not everything is black and white, Mr. “Statistics”
