Factor expressed tremendous excitement upon receiving confirmation for Kid Cudi's future performance. "He was our first choice from the start, it for a while, it was doubtful that he would be able to perform," said Factor. "But thankfully, the offer fell back into our lap and everything worked out." Even within hours after confirmation, Factor was able to gauge a reaction from students. "So far, the response has been very positive."

Coming off of a tour with fellow blog-rapper Asher Roth and the release of Man on the Moon, Kid Cudi should be armed with tremendous vitality, ready to entertain and enthrall the fall concert audience. "I think it will be a huge success," said Factor, "Like the Black Keys' Springfest performance, it's great to host a local artist and be able to celebrate their successes."

The UPB fall concert will be held in Adelbert Gymnasium on October 10, with a time to be determined. Undergraduate student tickets will be $5 and graduate student and faculty tickets will be $10.

His father died of cancer while he was only eleven years old, but the tragic event played a strong role in shaping Kid Cudi's music.
