yeah, a lot of dudes are saying dumbass shit to hate. Cudi got this role before he became a star. He got this role on a legit actor's tip. Auditioned for it and everything. He wanted to be the lead character, but didn't get the role, but they liked him so much they created a whole new character for him, let him name the character and everything.
So naw, they didnt just throw him in there to make nigggas like us go crazy.
He kinda represents the show anyway. Dude went to New York to make it, and he did.
