Earlier this year, Scott Mescudi, better known by his stage name Kid Cudi, traveled back to his high school in Shaker Heights, Ohio, to deliver a TED Talk revolving around the obstacles he had to overcome on his journey to success. He tailored his message to the young audience by recounting his struggles in school, confessing, "At one point I didn't feel like I was smart enough to pass that test, or I didn't feel like I was smart enough to go this college.

He went on to stress the importance of his family, who acted as a support system as he pursued his musical achievements, while also acknowledging his own determination and drive.
