Cudi learned of Breedlove after the teenager posted two videos on Youtube chronicling his three near death experiences while battling hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a condition that causes thickening of the heart muscles, which can lead to death.
In one of those near death experiences, Breedlove mentioned a vision in which he and the 27-year-old Cudi, his favorite rapper, were dressed in suits. In his video he said, “he couldn’t stop smiling.”
After seeing the videos, Cudi wrote:
“I broke down, Iam to tears because I hate how life is so unfair. This has really touched my heart in a way I cant describe, this is why I do what I do. Why I write my life, and why I love you all so much… We love you Ben. Forever. Thank you for loving me."
