How Much Does Kid Cudi Hum?

One thing is clear: Grammy award-winning artist Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi, known by his stage name Kid Cudi, loves to hum. In proving this point, Connor Rothschild's project flexes coding, data analysis, and statistics skills. Hip-hop fans will appreciate the project for its discography analysis, but even those less familiar with Kid Cudi's music can benefit from the methodology and apply it to a passion project of choice. In other words, here is proof that calculations can be creative, too. At the link above, viewers can explore findings that measure concentrations of humming, show the evolution of Cudi's humming over time, and dive into statistics by track and album. Among other options, users will discover what proportion of Kid Cudi's songs are made up of hums (notably, only 53 of the 226 of Cudi's songs on Genius omitted humming entirely). The project also reveals Cudi's preference for starting and ending his tracks with humming. Notes on Rothschild's research and coding process are available at the conclusion of the piece.
