Kid Cudi - Kid Cudi Moved By Tragic Fan's Video

Kid Cudi has paid tribute to a fan who lost his battle with a heart disease on Christmas Day, calling the tragic teen a "real hero".
Ben Breedlove suffered a fatal heart attack on Sunday (25Dec11) after a lifelong struggle with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
The 18 year old, from Austin, Texas, became an internet sensation after uploading videos on YouTube.com detailing his health scares as well as offering advice to other youngsters facing hardship.
Earlier this month (Dec11), Breedlove posted a clip about a vision he experienced during a recent brush with death, when he saw himself in a white room with his favourite rapper Cudi.
He explained, "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."
The Day 'n' Nite rapper has since taken to his own blog to share his reaction to Breedlove's moving video, admitting he "broke down" watching the footage.
He writes, "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, I am (in) tears because I hate how life is so unfair.
"This has really touched my heart in a way I can't 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**ked 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."
Cudi adds, "To Ben's family, you raised a real hero, he's definitely mine. You have my love."
