Kid Cudi has shared a trailer for his upcoming documentary, A Man Named Scott. The Robert Alexander-directed film is set to arrive on Amazon Prime next month and will examine a decade of the Cleveland-born rapper’s “creative choices, struggles and breakthroughs.”
Cudi took to Twitter on Tuesday to share the doc’s trailer.
The two-minute trailer touches on Cudi’s rise to fame, his 2009 debut album Man on the Moon: The End of Day and more. It also sees Cudi reflecting on the challenges that stardom brought, including the pressure he felt to be an honest and positive role model for his fans.
“I just had a hard time dealing with the adjustments,” he says in the trailer. “From being Scott to being Kid Cudi… People looked up to me, but I’m not a happy person. I felt like a fraud and that’s what drove me to escape from reality.”
In another tweet, Cudi added that A Man Named Scott will feature “some of my favorite people.” The documentary was co-produced by Complex Networks and Film 45 and opens with words from Pharrell Williams.
“This is my story,” Cudi added on Twitter. “… I can’t wait for y’all to see the doc.”
Besides his documentary, Cudi also recently recorded a collaboration with JAY-Z for the forthcoming Western, The Harder They Fall. A snippet of the pair’s track, allegedly titled “My Guns Go Bang,” appeared in a trailer for the Hov-produced movie last month.
The 37-year-old is also set to co-star in X, Ti West’s upcoming horror flick; alongside Mia Goth, Jenna Ortega and Brittany Snow.
See Cudi’s tweets and his film’s trailer below. A Man Named Scott premieres on Amazon Prime on Nov. 5.
