Kid Cudi Lands TV Deal

By  |  7 Comments


Scott Mescudi aka Kid Cudi has landed a TV deal thanks to Marky Mark Mark Whalberg. The burgeoning rapper has been on a roll since XXL magazine named him one of the 10 rappers who are going to blow this year. Looks like they were right, he hasn’t even released an album yet!

Kid Cudi, now riding the wave of his latest single “Make Her Say” (featuring Common and Kanye West),  confirmed a series titled How To Make It In America. The show will be a comedy where Cudi plays the lead, Domingo Dean (named after both of the rapper’s brothers). There are no more details about the plot just yet, but it  won’t have anything to do with music. Julian Farino, who also did Sex and the City, and some episodes of The Sopranos and Entourage, will be directing. Neither a date, nor network have been confirmed for the series (but I’m banking on HBO 1st quarter).

    Man this yr is looking very promising to both Cudi and Drake, do you think there’s any room for Charles Hamilton? (Not too sure).

    Ha! Dom, Charles is taking a lil breather for now. I think he’s trying to get some things together..but all in all, can’t beat it. Charles came from left field — a deal w/ Interscope and a Management deal w/ Violator. No one even knew who he was! Charles dropped singles and mixtapes AFTER he was signed. That’s unheard of in the music industry these days.
