The Kid Cudi and Joe Burrow bromance continues. After Burrow led the Bengals to a comeback victory over the Kansas City Chiefs to take home the AFC Championship, Cudder reached out to congratulate Joe Shiesty and asked him for his game-worn jersey from Sunday (January 31).
The Bengals quarterback quickly came through for his idol and sent the No. 9 jersey with grass stains and all to Cudi earlier this week with an autograph and “Ohio Love” written out as both the Man on the Moon rapper and Burrow hail from the Buckeye State.
“Ok. So after the Bengals win against the Chiefs, I hit Joe and congratulated him and asked if I could have his jersey,” Cudi explained on social media with a photo of the jersey. “He said yes and sent it right away rockin this bitch to the game and then framing it. I am so geeked right now.”

Burrow has long been a fan of Kid Cudi since the early days of the Man on the Moon series in addition to calling him his idol and favorite artist when entering the NFL.
“One of my idols growing up, Kid Cudi reached out to me yesterday. You said I got LeBron tweeting me or whatever you said it was,” Burrow told reporters following the victory over the Chiefs. “That part is surreal; the football part, not so much.”
When asked about his favorite Cudi track, Burrow replied, “I listen to ‘New York City Rage Fest’ every game day, right before I go out. Man on the Moon… I mean, I like all of his stuff.”

Look for Kid Cudi to be in attendance for Super Bowl LVI next Sunday (February 13) cheering Burrow and the underdog Bengals on inside Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium when Cincinnati takes on the L.A. Rams. As it stands a week away, the Bengals are +170 on the moneyline in Las Vegas to win the Super Bowl, meaning a $100 bet on Cincinnati would net a bettor $170.
