A self-declared spoof act, Kidd made his mainstream breakthrough following the success of his YouTube single, Kysset med Jamel (literally: "Been Kissing Jamel") which was released in March 2011 and went viral, reaching 100.000 views in a few months, a large number for a Danish artist not backed by a major label, and he received much media attention, appearing in the Danish national news and on the cover of Soundvenue, a Danish music magazine.
Kidd released the singles Gøre sin ting (literally: "[to] Do One's Thing") and Ik lavet penge (literally: "Not Made Money") and the full-length album Greatest Hits the same year, and subsequently announced his retirement numerous times, withdrawing the statement shortly after everytime.
The end of Kidd came on January 8th 2012. On national television, Nicholas Westwood (Kidd) described his work as an onslaught on the music industry, dismissed it as a joke, and declared his following "uncritical". He promised not to continue his career as Kidd.
