Jordan Peele's Monkeypaw Productions Reportedly In Talks To Produce TV Pilot From Kid Cudi

Fans of Kid Cudi will recall that in 2016 that the rapper posted a candid message on Facebook detailing his struggles with anxiety, depression and suicidal urges. The Kids See Ghosts rapper's open revelation was well-welcomed and much needed, in large part due to the stigma surrounding mental health in the black community, especially among black men. Two years removed from this revelation, Scott Mescudi seems to be in a more cerebral and serene headspace.

The rapper has also found another excellent outlet for his creative expression. In an interview for Billboard magazine, the rapper revealed he has been working on a TV show for several years, and Jordan Peele's Monkeypaw Productions could produce it. "I’ve been working on this TV show secretly for four years. I’m in early development on a pilot and getting it right. Monkeypaw Productions is in talks to produce it -- Jordan Peele’s company."

Fans of Kid Cudi will surely know that this is not the rapper's first foray into film and television. The Cleveland native ventured into the acting realm with his role as Domingo Brown in the short-lived (and canceled too soon) HBO comedy-drama How to Make It in America.
