Kanye West Is Reportedly Holed Up In The Studio Recording A Secret Project With His Former Apprentice
Last Summer was a strange time for Kanye West and Kid Cudi. There was a time when the two men were as tight as brothers, but then Cudi left Kanye’s label and the two started beefing on Twitter/Social Media late last Summer.
Cudi went on a Twitter rant calling out Kanye for having 30 people write songs on ‘The Life of Pablo’. Kanye responded with a scathing rebuke of Cudi, saying “Don’t you ever mention ‘Ye name, I birthed you” amongst other things. Kid Cudi later checked himself into rehab for suicidal urges and depression. At some point, Kanye was also hospitalized for a nervous breakdown. Those two went through some shit last year, that’s for sure.
Now, Page Six is reporting that Kanye is holed up in the recording studio with his former protege Kid Cudi and the two are working on a secret project that they’re expected to drop out of the blue:
“they’re going to drop some crazy collaboration out of the blue,” an insider told us. “They’re going to drop some surprise project on everybody. They’re recording it now.”
They’re keeping the lid so tight that “nobody knows what it is — or what it sounds like . . . There are no professionals in the room. It’s just Cudi, Kanye and an engineer. They’re recording together in Japan.” (via)
Kanye was reportedly working at a recording studio somewhere in the mountains of Montana back in May to rediscover his ‘creative groove’. He’s also been spotted hitting the studio with Atlanta-based rappers Migos…And now this.
It sounds to me like 2018 is set to be the Year of Kanye if this timeline holds up, right? (h/t PageSix)
