He first gained recognition in the music industry with the release of his self-published debut single "Day 'n' Nite" on his MySpace page, which quickly became a worldwide hit. This led to Cudi teaming up with record producers Plain Pat and Emile Haynie to create his first official full-length project, the mixtape A Kid Named Cudi (2008).

With the success of his mixtape, Cudi caught the attention of high-profile musician Kanye West, who signed him to his GOOD Music label imprint by late 2008.

Cudi's self-produced solo album, Indicud (2013), was certified gold by the RIAA and spawned the platinum-selling single "Just What I Am" (featuring King Chip). He continued to produce most of his own records, including avant-garde music albums like Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon (2014) and Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven (2015), which was led by the grunge-inspired single "Confused!". Cudi's sixth solo album, Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin' (2016), was supported by the lead single "Surfin'" (featuring Pharrell Williams).

In 2018, Cudi collaborated with Kanye West on a joint album under the eponymous name Kids See Ghosts, which was met with widespread critical acclaim. In April 2020, Cudi earned his first number-one song on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart with "The Scotts", featuring fellow American rapper Travis Scott.
