Kid Cudi has officially confirmed that Kanye has hit him up for the follow up to Kids See Ghosts phenomenal 2018 effort.
Cudi revealed in an interview with Complex that the second half of rap duo Kids See Ghosts, Kanye West, has already spoken to him about working together again, adding that there will “definitely” be a sequel to their first album together.
“Kanye already told me he wants to start working on the second one,” Cudi said. “It’s kinda weird, ’cause with the first album, I didn’t know how serious he was about making a collab album with me. He had mentioned it, but I thought it was just a good idea he had in the moment. But then he kept bringing it up and kept having me come to his house, listen to music, and work on beats, so I was like, “Wow, he’s really into this.” We had a discussion where he said he wanted to make a spiritual album and I told him, ‘Great. That’s what I do. I would love to do that, something I can sink my teeth into.’ So there will definitely be more.”
Elsewhere in the interview Cudi talked about Entergalactic, an album he is making to accompany his animated Netflix show of the same name. “I think this [album] is my perspective on love, and people haven’t really heard that,” he said about his future project.
“I’m trying my hardest to still introduce new sounds and push the envelope, sonically,” Cudi added. “So it’s still gonna be like everything that people love about Kid Cudi music. The only difference is that it’s gonna be told from a different perspective. Some songs, not all songs. I have some songs where I’m just rapping—it’s just Cudi having fun again, and I think people miss that side of me.”
Alongside black-ish creator Kenya Barris, Kid Cudi will co-write, executive produce and direct Entergalactic.
