Kid Cudi made his triumphant return to television screens Wednesday night on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
After a public battle with depression last autumn, seeing a full-revitalized Cudi rock the Rockefeller Plaza stage is pretty downright inspiring. Plus, “Kitchen,” even without Jaden Smith’s vocals, is one of the smoothest cuts from his latest Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’, so we’re happy to hear it.
Casually dressed, Cudi put on a performance about as low-key as a full-string section gets. The main takeaway here is that Cudi is back and he’s happy. For that, we’re happy to have him.
