Tropes related to Kid Cudi include:
- Alternative Hip Hop
- The Cameo: Drake cameos in the music video for "Pursuit of Happiness".
- Concept Album: Both Man on the Moon albums.
- Deconstruction: The second "Man on the Moon" album deconstructs the character described in the first, as well as continuing the story.
- Genre Shift: "Up Up and Away" from Man on the Moon: The End of Day has sort of an indie rock style, after a whole album of rap. On the same album, there's "Pursuit of Happiness", which has influences from late 80's Dream Pop and features indie artists MGMT and Ratatat.
- New Sound Album: This WZRD album he made with Dot Da Genius, as well as his album Indicud.
- Pun: the hook of "Make Her Say", based on a sample of the acoustic version of Lady Gaga's "Poker Face", makes the obvious joke:"I make her say/oh oh oh oh/when I/p-p-p-poke her face, p-p-p-poke her face"
- Record Producer:
- Emile and Plain Pat produced a large percent of "A Kid Named Cudi" and both Man on The Moon albums (despite a falling out, he says he'd open to working with them when he makes the third.
- Dot Da Genius is another producer he's worked with since the beginning of his career. He is also the second half of WZRD and co-produced that album.
- As of the WZRD album Cudi's been producing himself, in addition to co-producing that album with Dot Da Genius he produced the entirety of his next solo album "Indicud".
- The Stoner: The man has a song called "Marijuana"! He even lets the track run for a few extra seconds at the end so its length can reach 4:20.
- Kid Cudi has actually stopped using marijuana between Man On The Moon II and WZRD, this hasn't prevented him from recording and performing songs about get stoned.
