"If you could look into the camera and speak to your colleagues, what would you tell them that Hip Hop needs?" Arsenio asks this of Kid Cudi during his recent visit to the late night talk show. We've come to expect that Kid Cudi is pretty open about his thoughts on a lot of things; his past, the music he creates, drug use, and his daughter. This interview was no different. This time he spoke about much of what I jsut mentioned, he also approached his answer to the question posed by Arsenio ever so eloquently. I have to admit, there was something pretty special about this interview. I personally shed a tear when he began to speak about suicide, and the times in his life when he questioned going on or not and just being in a dark place. I've been there. I know a lot of people can identify with times in your life when you're not quite sure which way is up,down, or sideways - but especially when you possess a gift or talent that's unique.

After he took a thoughtful breathe, he said, "I think the braggadocio, money, cash, hoe thing needs to be deaded." Watch the rest of what he had to say below.

Do you think the current state of Hip Hop 'holds black people back as a culture'?
