Back in February, Kid Cudi visited his former high school in Shaker Heights, Ohio and delivered an inspiring Ted Talk speech about his path to success. That speech is now available online, and it's full of gems of wisdom from the renowned artist who recently dropped his latest album, Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven. Among some of the topics Cudi covered in his Ted Talk were his high school years, his ambitious move to New York City, and how his daughter Vada has changed his life.

"At one point I didn't feel like I was smart enough to pass that test, or I didn't feel like I was smart enough to go this college," Cudi said of his path. "With music it was like, nobody's going to take that from me." Check out Cudi's full Ted Talk and grab his new album on iTunes here.
