A Kid Named Cudi is a 2008 mixtape by Kid Cudi released by New York City street wear company 10. Deep on July 17, 2008.[1][2] The mixtape marked his first official release. Production was handled by Plain Pat and Emile; samples included artists ranging from Outkast to Paul Simon, N.E.R.D to Band of Horses. The mixtape allowed a new progression of Kid Cudi with the release catching the eye of Kanye West, owner of GOOD Music. Scott Mescudi would ultimately be signed to GOOD Music later that year.

Notably the album contains the song Day 'n' Nite, the debut single reached number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100.
