Kid Cudi has had a hell of a ride throughout his short career, and for this fall’s issue Complex chose to give us a fres look look at newly changed superstar.

Since then, he’s released two classic albums and gone through a lifetime worth of personal and professional drama. We’ve been there to chronicle it all, collaborating with Cudi on three quotable cover stories over the last three years.”

The new issue hits stands on October 4, but we’re giving you an early look at the cover story (and extended gallery) now…
