Scott Mescudi, better known as rapper Kid Cudi, returned to his former high school to speak to students.

Mescudi attended Shaker Heights High School and Solon High School, graduating in 2002. In 2004, he moved to Brooklyn, N.Y. to launch a career in music.

Though he's had considerable success in music, he told students he wishes he had put more into his high school education.

"I can't say that I don't want to sometimes go back and relearn some things. I can't say I don't feel out of certain conversations that my friends have."

The presentation was an independent event that followed the TED Talk format, called a TEDx Talk. Watch the full talk on YouTube.
