Kanye disappeared from the Twittersphere almost a year ago around the release of his last album Life of Pablo, a project who’s title he said was a reference to the Apostle Paul and featured spiritual themes and gospel royalty like Kirk Franklin.
He and Kid Cudi will also release an album on June 8 under the group name “Kids See Ghost.” Although they’ve had some strong collaborations, the two have a complicated history, reports Pitchfork:[lborder]
In 2014, Cudi revealed that he was annoyedwhen West used old vocals for Yeezus’ “Guilt Trip.” A couple of years later, in September 2016, Cudi sent strays shots at West on Twitter, Shortly after, during a concert, West said, “Don’t never mention Ye name. I birthed you.” One week later, West declared, “Kid Cudi is my brother.” In November 2017, a few days after the “Kids See Ghost” trademark was filed, Cudi brought West out during a show. West joined Cudi on stage once again in February 2018.[/lborder]
