Kid Cudi is having a rager of a week. In addition to the top 5 debut of his album Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon, the Cleveland rapper aka Scott Mescudi makes his big-screen debut in Need for Speed, which had its Hollywood premiere on Thursday.
Looking like a movie star in a floral-print blazer and leather pants, a clean-shaven Cudi pulled up to the red carpet in a red-hot Mustang.
He stars alongside Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul in the action film, which opens March 14. “I fell in love with him right away,” he told Entertainment Weekly of his co-star. “You connect with people when you see a bit of yourself in them.”
Next up, the 30-year-old will play Ari Gold’s assistant in the upcoming Entourage movie.
A makeup-free Skylar Grey also hit the red carpet, showing off her tomboy style in rolled-up shorts, a trucker hat, and Y-3 sneakers.
Skylar has collaborated with Cudi on the Need for Speed end title song “Hero,” which is set to debut Tuesday.
