Kid Cudi doesn’t do many TV appearances these days. But with his new album Satellite Flight: Journey to Mother Moon fresh in stores and the Need For Speed movie out next Friday, he made his way to Chelsea Lately last night. Sitting down with guest host Gabourey Sidibe, a very spirited Cudi spoke about his start in music, early jobs before getting his break and the inspiration behind “Day N Nite.”

Shameless plug alert: Check out the 20 Best Kid Cudi Songs (So Far) that I wrote for my other gig at The BoomBox. Shouts to Cudi for sharing it, too!
