'Ye and Kid Cudi were hanging out at Takashi Murakami's studio.
Kanye West and Kid Cudi have had an interesting history together. The G.O.O.D Music C.E.O and Kid Cudi first met when the latter was working at a Bape Store in New York City. The run-in happened to help shift how music would be heard in later years with Cudi having a very strong hand in creating Kanye's highly influential album 808's & Heartbreaks. While over the course of the past few years, they've had their ups-and-downs as not only collaborators but as friend however they seemed to patch things up last year.
Earlier today Japanese artist, Takashi Murakami posted a picture on Instagram with himself, Kanye West and Kid Cudi at his studio in Japan. The caption on the post read "Long time no see @kidcudi and #kanyewest. Thank you for coming to my studio. It was fire ð¥ð¥ð¥."
Besides this picture, a few others that were at the studio also posted on the 'gram pictures with 'Ye and Cudi. Coodie Rock, who is a film director and co-owner of Creative Control LLC. posted a picture of himself, Kanye, Cudi and Murakami with the caption "Coming Dec 31st! #EVERYBODYWINS #GODisGREAT."
Greg "Ol Skool" Lewis also posted a group picture with the three artists captioning it "Coming Dec 31st #EverybodyWins"
While there is no official statement that there is a project between the two happening, the idea of it would be very dope and definitely would break some musical barriers.
