- "A Kid Named Cudi". Kid Cudi released his first mixtape as a free download on July 17th, 2008, which captured Kanye West's attention that eventually led to a record deal with GOOD Music. DJ Plain Pat and Emile produced the music on A Kid Named Cudi.
- "Man on the Moon: The End of Day". Kid Cudi, an acclaimed backpacker rapper, released his game-changing debut album through Universal Motown Records on September 25, 2009. Kid Cudi's first release sold more than 104,000 copies in the first week and charted #4 across the airwaves. "Day n' Nite", the album's most commercially successful single charted well in both the United States and Europe.

"Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager", the sequel to Kid Cudi's debut album, was released on November 10, 2010 by GOOD Music and Motown Records.

Critics often draw correlations to Pink Floyd, Hendrix, and Zappa with a hint of "808s and Heartbreak".
