Speaking with The Breakfast Club morning show on Tuesday, the 22-year-old comic said Cudi's early work kept him from committing suicide when he was a teenager.
The conversation turned to the 32-year-old rapper -- who made headlines earlier this month after revealing that he'd checked himself into rehab for "depression and suicidal urges" -- during a segment where Davidson was aksed to pick his favorite among a series of musical artists and entertainers. When he was asked to choose between Cudi and Drake, there was no question.
"Cudi's the best of all," Davidson said. "He saved my life. I would’ve killed myself if I didn’t have Kid Cudi."
Davidson also opened up about working with Cudi recently on promos for the SNL star's upcoming stand-up special, SMG, and revealed that he's kept in contact with the artist since he checked into rehab.
"I texted with him last Monday, and he's in really good spirits," Davidson shared. "I think I might go see him next week. But he's in a good place."
