Kid Cudi's touching response to fan's death

MSN Entertainment

Rapper Kid Cudi added a touching post to his blog on Monday after learning about a young fan's death from a health condition.

"I am so sad about Ben Breedlove. I watched the video he left for the world to see, and him seeing me in detail, in his vision really warmed my heart. I broke down, Iam to tears because I hate how life is so unfair," Cudi wrote.

Last week, Ben Breedlove of Austin, Texas, posted two YouTube videos revealing his brushes with death because of a lifelong heart condition, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

In the clips, the 18-year-old holds up notes detailing his fear, happiness and courage about dealing with his health issues.

In the second video, Breedlove talks about his Dec. 6 brush with death and reveals that this time, he saw a vision of his favorite rapper, Kid Cudi, and that it made him happy.

"I was looking at myself in this mirror ... I couldn't stop smiling ... I was proud of MYSELF, of my entire life, everything I have done. It was the BEST feeling," Breedlove's written messages said.

Breedlove died on Christmas Day.

Cudi also wrote in the post, "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. Life is really f---ed up sometimes, but I know Ben is at Peace, and I hope he gets a chance to sit and talk with my Dad. We love you Ben. Forever. Thank you for loving me. To Ben's family, you raised a real hero, he's definitely mine. You have my love."

Your body releases all of the melatonin, serotonin, dopamine, etc. when it expires. These are powerful chemicals stored in your brain and other organs. What he saw was the most vivid dream he could ever imagine, it must have felt like pure euphoria, but it has nothing to do with god or angels or heaven. All of those are false things that do not exist, they are simply existent in the minds of the people who falsely believe as well as there is no such thing as a spirit to go to heaven. This can all be proven with fact, it's a humans unsureness of the end that creates these types of visions.

Kid cudi to be saved by this a big seed planted that is why he was standing next to him

Random youtube comment:
"Dude you are looking at the negatives in this kids life. He out of anyone should have been the angry one, but guess what he wasn't. What is your point to putting a comment like this on here? He wanted to tell his story of his life. God is what got him through this and what get many people through a lot of the difficulties. God gave him hope to carry on to tell his story to the world."    

He was blessed becaused he had time to know GOD & JESUS believing in angels is a good sign blessed because death comes off guard alot, it seems alot of ppl who actually been to the otherside believes in GOD only people who dont beleive alot of times have not had this experience

the spiritual world is about "knowing" in it you see something you know it by its prescense you just know how he knew it was the exact same feeling that is how it is with JESUS you just know because it is spiritual gut feeling which where i believe your spirit the inner man the inner most part of you reside.

I asked GOD "how do you talk to people?"GOD said "in they way they could understand" takes things from your remebrence so you can understand uses what you have in you

GOD considers the good in the lines of songs just dont want you to be on the other team selling your heart pearls amongst swine fighting a losing battle against it but yet apart of the same house culture that is promoting it

Is it coincidental that the first time the figure showed up to the left of Ben’s head was the first time Heaven was highlighted?  And it happened every time thereafter when Ben addressed Angels, Heaven, or God.  There are Angles were among us… This video has made me believe that Ben was one amongst us—even as I reside here in New York City, I believe he was amongst us as his spirits has touched me out her.

i wish there were less immature idiots out there than those posting comments about what is and what isn't rap and what is and what isn't hip hop and put their focus on the meaning behind this's not about rap, hip hop, or even music per's about people and humanity.  this article is about good people & the impact they have on someone's life in a positive way.  how immature to see someone read this whole story and scan through people's comments only for them to focus on that one discrepancy over rap & hip hop and miss the true meaning of the story. sad are the people that surround us in this world.  Kid Cudi, whatever music you label yourself under, you're a true gentleman.
