Back in August, Kanye West and Kid Cudi went to Japan to visit 'Ye's old friend and Graduation cover designer Takashi Murakami.
Social media activity surrounding the visit seemed to hint at a joint Kanye-Cudi album titled Everybody Wins dropping New Year's Eve.
Soon after that, the New York Post had a source tell them something's cooking.
"They’re going to drop some crazy collaboration out of the blue,” an anonymous source close to the situation told Page Six of 'Ye and Cudi. "They’re going to drop some surprise project on everybody. They’re recording it now.”
We're coming up on NYE, and 'Ye and Cudi fans are anticipating what may be coming.
