Kanye West and Kid Cudi‘s on again, off again, on again relationship is now in the midst of a collaborative mode. Word is the two enigmatic Hip-Hop stars are bunkered down in Japan working on a new, now not so secret project.
Someone snitched to Page Six:
West — who’s been keeping a low profile since his breakdown last year — has been holed up in a studio with Cudi, who checked himself into rehab last fall for “depression and suicidal urges.” Around the same time, West was hospitalized for a reported “nervous breakdown.”
According to a source, the new project is so secret, “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.”
So much for keeping things top secret.
Or, it could be that Yeezy and Cudder are simply working on the former’s upcoming Turbo Grafx 16 project. Both have already been spotted hanging in the studio in Cali, along with their longtime associate and A&R exec Plain Pat.
So far Yeezy has been recording in Wyoming, Los Angeles and Japan. Along with Jay-Z taking him to task, that new album is fittin’ to be fire.
