Kid Cudi Covers Complex Feb/March Issue [PHOTOS]
Kid Cudi is on the second cover subject of the mag's February/March 2013 issue. The G.O.O.D Music rapper was discusses in the interview about battling depression, in the wake of breaking up with a longtime girlfriend, and the prescription drugs he took to cope having ill effects.
Cudi told Complex:
*It's been crazy for me. I took a trip on antidepressant lane for a little bit. After the WZRD song “Dr. Pill” everyone thought I was talking about molly or ecstasy. But I'm talking about prescription meds. I had just gotten a shrink. I was having an emotional breakdown with this breakup. I kept trying different pills for five months. It f-cked me up.
They weren't working. It was every side effect on the bottle. I couldn't f-ck. My body didn't work. It was not good. I said, “Something's wrong with me. What the f-ck? Why do I feel like I want to punch an elephant?” [Laughs.] “Why am I so irritable?” I finally got off the pills and then I started feeling normal. My brain went back to where it needed to be. I was able to analyze things and get my sh-t together.*
