In a new interview with Grass Routes Podcast, fellow G.O.O.D. Music artist CyHi the Prynce confirmed West is also producing forthcoming albums from “all” artists on the roster, as well as a new one from Kid Cudi, who officially split from the label back in 2013.
“I got a project I’m doing with ‘Ye that’s all produced by him. He’s doing it for every artist on the label,” CyHi explains around the 34:25 mark in the above video. “[Big] Sean’s got one that will be executive produced by him. Pusha [T]’s next album is strictly produced by him. Teyana [Taylor’s next project], strictly [produced by Kanye]. Kid Cudi’s, strictly [produced by Kanye]. He does, like, 10 beats a day.”
This summer, Kid Cudi and Kanye West were spotted leaving an LA studio together, spending time in Japan working on a “secret project” and visiting Takashi Murakami’s studio, so it absolutely fits that they’ve been working on a new Kid Cudi album, although CyHi didn’t name drop Cudder.
Also adding fuel to the Kanye West-produced Kid Cudi album rumor fire is Greg “Olskool Ice-Gre” Lewis. The first and former G.O.O.D. Music A&R posted a photo on Instagram of Yeezy and Cudi’s Murakami studio visit with the caption: “Coming Dec 31st #EverybodyWins | My Squad: #Coodie #KanyeWest #KidCudi.”
While we don’t know exactly what will go down on December 31, with Kanye and Cudi’s project becoming less and less “top secret,” we just might get a new Kid Cudi album just in time for New Year’s Eve 2018.
