Rapper Kid Cudi is getting the help he desperately needs — and just in time. Cudi let his legions of Facebook followers know that if he hadn’t checked into rehab, the “ragin violent storm inside his heart” would have caused him to hurt himself, or worse. “If I didn’t come here, I wouldve done something to myself,” he wrote.
Cudi revealed that anxiety and depression have caused him lifelong pain and paranoia, writing “I dont trust anyone because of it.” Even his admission and surrender to what he needs — a stay in rehab to help counteract this depression — gave him no peace, despite peace being the thing Cudi says he seeks the most. He continually apologized to all the people he “let down.” Cudi won a 2011 Grammy for a collaboration with Kanye West and others, but he has feuded with West and others in the rap world since.
