Kids see ghosts

Yesterday on Twitter, Kanye shared that he and Cudi are going to release an "album" together soon. They are forming a group under the name Kids See Ghosts. The collab is said to drop June 8th per Ye's official Twitter account.

The two have had some recent "beef" when Ye was wylin on Twitter (before he rebranded this week), but they've reconciled. And whenever they make tracks together, they're great. This will be nothing new...and that's why people are so excited. It's a tried and true group that physically cannot disappoint ears.

On Ye's recent project, The Life Of Pablo, Cudi helps out on Father Stretch My Hands. It's a super iconic track from the release.

Erase Me is Cudi's song. I didn't like it too much when it dropped originally but recently I've been liking it more. The video's funny too. Machine Gun Kelly recently did a video like this as well.

Welcome To Heartbreak is a Kanye song from his 808s period. It may be the first collab with Cudi I remember hearing. It's subtle, but effective.

This one...All Of The Lights is such a banger. It's from Kanye's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album. Definitely one of my favorites though they all have their place. I think Cudi's vocals really make the song memorable. His hooks are SO fire.

This one was a huge hit. Make Her Say is not only a dope video but a great track. It also features Common. This was when Cudi was HUGE. This is Cudi's song.

Super excited to hear what is released June 8th (it will probably be later than that if I had to guess) by the duo. It's cool that they're branding themselves as this new identity Kids See Ghosts. I think it will sound familiar but with Ye it is always something on another level. There will be either crazy production or it will be some sort of abstracted vision of the two together. Those are my guesses.
