Kid Cudi on Ben Breedlove

"I was wearing a really nice suit and, so was my fav rapper, Kid Cudi," Breedlove wrote. He said he thought to himself, "Damn, we look good."

"I then looked at myself in the mirror, I was proud of MYSELF, of my entire life, everything I have done," Breedlove wrote. "It was the BEST feeling."

He said he thought of lyrics from a Kid Cudi song that said, "When will the fantasy end, when will the heaven begin?" Kid Cudi sat him down at a glass desk and told him, "Go now."

"I didn't want to leave that place," Breedlove wrote. "I wish I NEVER woke up."

Kid Cudi responded to the videos on his website, writing that he "broke down" when he saw the video.

"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," Kid Cudi wrote. "We love you Ben. Forever. Thank you for loving me."

Cudi added, "To Ben's family, you raised a real hero, he's definitely mine. You have my love."

Breedlove had two popular YouTube channels, "BreedloveTV" and "OurAdvice4You," on which he would talk about his own life as well as dishing out relationship advice for his peers. Facebook and YouTube have been inundated with tributes to Breedlove.

At least three Facebook pages have been dedicated to Breedlove, with over 47,000 fans between them.

"In the 18 years that he lived, he lived bigger and more than people that live to be 80 and I think that his message is going to be incredible," Breedlove family friend Jill Scott told KVUE at the memorial.

A fundraiser been established on behalf of the Breedlove family to help them continue spread Ben's message and support others with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Click here to learn more.
