Kid Cudi & Nigo star in Complex's latest cover story, marking their first official meeting 11 years after Cudi worked in BAPE's NYC flagship. The two came together for a wide-ranging interview, including what Cudi has in store next musically.

He says his next album will be for his new Netflix show, Entergalactic. "A lot of the songs are about love and relationships," he said. "I’m not in a relationship right now, so it’s purely written from my imagination and writing as this character. That was something that was exciting to me because, after Kids See Ghosts, I felt like I said all I had to say. ...I didn’t know if I was gonna drop anything after Kids See Ghosts anytime soon. I was thinking about taking five years off."

We can also expect another Kids See Ghosts album. "There will be more Kids See Ghosts albums," he said. "Kanye already told me he wants to start working on the second one. It’s kinda weird, ’cause with the first album, I didn’t know how serious he was about making a collab album with me. He had mentioned it, but I thought it was just a good idea he had in the moment. But then he kept bringing it up and kept having me come to his house, listen to music, and work on beats, so I was like, 'Wow, he’s really into this.'"

Cudi also spoke about walking in Virgil Abloh's first Louis Vuitton show, which he actually asked Abloh to make happen. "I was very nervous," he said, "But it was unreal. I never thought I would be walking in a show that big. But to see Virgil execute at that level and do it the way he did it is just unbelievable. It is a victory for Black excellence, for streetwear, for all designers out here that just have a dream to design."
