Cooking in the works of new music is a collaboration from Kanye West and Kid Cudi. We might not be getting The Life Of Pablo II anytime soon, but from what we know this is going to be a major project for the two artists. On Thursday, August 17, Page Six announced the news and confirmed that Yeezy was reported to be in Japan with Cudi working on this rumored project. As if it hasn’t been long enough of a Cudi and Yeezy collab, this news took fans back in time. More specifically between 2008-2010, when the magic of Kid Cudi and Kanye West was being tested. The two-iconic artist have many collaborations together, and have produced some of the best throwbacks to date such as Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager’s “Erase Me.”
This secret project came as a shock for hip-hop fans everywhere. Mostly due to the fact that Cudi and West had a twitter feud after Kid Cudi allegedly dissed the rapper on Twitter last summer. However, the two artists and friends were able to leave the drama behind after Kanye West backed down from the feud and called Cudi his brother as well as the “most influential artist of the last 10 years.” The two artists also suffer from their mental health. In the past year, Cudi was checked into rehab for “suicidal urges” while Kanye was hospitalized for “temporary psychosis.” Both artists are doing better and kept/continue to keep their profile low for 2017.
The rappers were also seen talking businesses with the artist who created the album cover for Graduation. Hopefully, Ye and Cudi’s anticipated work will be revealed when Kanye embarks on his Pain, Passion, and Demon Slayin’ tour this fall.
