According to Jim Jones, he was the reason Kid Cudi's breakout track "Day N Night" started popping and is thus "solely" responsible for Cudi's career.

He explained how it all went down in a chat with DJ Superstar.

"Let me tell you the story.  Man, Kid Cudi was a nobody!” Jones said. “He worked in a f*cking store under Koch Records. I was signed to Koch Records. I didn’t even know Kid Cudi worked down there. Lisa Brunt’s nephew at the time was doing some work for me in my studio and sh*t  he’s like, ‘Yo, I manage these video directors, I want them to shoot a video for you.’

“I’m like, ‘Show me the video.’ They showed me the video, ended up being a Kid Cudi video that they shot for free for him on top of the roof, looking crazy. They’re like, ‘Yo, this is the kid that works inside the fucking rock ‘n’ roll store under Koch.’ And I was like, ‘Give me the record and I’ll let y’all shoot me a video.’ They got me the record, I did the record, they shot the video.”

“I put it on YouTube. Somebody at Hot 97 ripped it off of YouTube and started playing it at Hot 97,” he continued, adding he never got paid for doing this. “When Cudi got his deal, they took me off the record and went for ads without me on the record. DJ Cassidy did that. You know I bumped into him, that’s my man, though. It’s always a joke, though, but it happens like that. I’m solely responsible for Kid Cudi’s career. You can go tell him that and he’s going to tell you, ‘He’s right.'”

So far, Cudi hasn't commented.
