Could the artist behind "Graduation" also be doing the cover of Kanye and Cudi's upcoming album?
8 months later, we're finally learning what Kanye West, Kid Cudi and Takashi Murakami were up to in Japan. Last August, a photo of the two rappers with the legendary artist behind the Graduation cover and the "Good Morning" video sparked rumors of a collaborative Kanye and Cudi album. From then on, fans were convinced that the project was arriving on New Year's Eve, with many furiously refreshing the GOOD Music site instead of enjoying some champagne with friends on December 31st, only to find no sign of a project.
Earlier this week, those early conspiracy theories (that to be fair, were held up by a PageSix report) started to make a little more sense when Kanye announced that he and Cudi would release a project under the group name Kids See Ghosts in June. On Saturday, he teased some art related to the project that appears to be designed by Murakami, though it's unclear if it has anything to do with the official cover for the upcoming project. He captioned the posts, which include drawings of Kanye and Cudi, as well as a spray-painted logo, with "Murakami vibes." View them above.
The Kids See Ghosts album is not the only project Kanye is preparing to release in the near future. His follow-up to 2016's The Life Of Pablo will be shared June 1st, with the Cudi collab coming a week later on June 8th. Earlier this week, Kanye also shared release dates for GOOD Music artists Pusha T and Teyana Taylor.
