The September issue of Esquire features a cover featuring the 38-year-old rapper “Day N’ Nite.” In the interview that goes along with the video, Cudi, real name Scott Mescudi, discusses how he balances stardom with spending time with Vada, his 12-year-old daughter.
Cudi recalls that when in Cleveland with Vada, he separated from her to pose for a few pictures with two admirers. In the interview, he asked her how she felt about the experience when he got back into the car.
Vada said, “Sad because I want it to just be us,” to her father. Cudi then pleaded with his followers to grant his daughter’s request. He continues, “Let this be an APB for everyone out there.”
