Kanye West Shows He Still Does Some Of His Best Work With Kid Cudi (Audio)
Life is too short to listen to bad music. So…let AFH fight through it for you and only supply you with that great stuff. Despite the reports, Hip-Hop is alive and well and, in many ways, is better than it’s ever been. Not only are we able to go back and listen to all of our favorites, at the click of a button, there is also a ton of great music still being made by artists, young and veteran alike…if you know where to look. To help with that task, we’ve created a playlists with recent music—songs that have been released within the last year or so. We update it regularly, so, if you like what you hear, subscribe to follow us on Spotify.
Today marks the third consecutive Friday for an album releasing out of the G.O.O.D. Music camp. Following last week’s ye album by Kanye West, and the previous week’s DAYTONA by Pusha-T, Kid Cudi and West link for KIDS SEE GHOSTS. With some spooky sounds, the LP restores some of that late 2000s chemistry between the Cleveland, Ohio MC/singer and the Chicago icon. Although the tracklist is out of sync with the actual song orders, first cut “Feel The Love” (listed as “4th Dimension”) welcomes Push’ into ‘Ye and Cudder’s cypher.
The frantic energy of the song features just under three minutes of dynamic beats, Cudi’s brooding and melodic chorus, and the Clipse co-founder’s precise lyricism. After a period when Kanye, Cudi, and Pusha-T have all been in the headlines for controversies (including Kanye and Kid having 2016 disagreements), love prevails in one of the standout moments (and its opening shot) from KIDS SEE GHOSTS.
In addition to new music from Cudi and Kanye, the playlist features recent music from Pusha-T, Black Thought & 9th Wonder, Dave East, Royce 5’9 and his group PRhyme, Dr. Octagon, Phonte, J. Cole, Drake, Logic, Kendrick Lamar, Black Milk, Eminem, Lute, Jeezy, Wiz Khalifa, Statik Selektah, Brent Faiyaz, Freddie Gibbs, CyHi The Prynce, Saba, Scarface, Rapsody, Sylvan LaCue, Evidence, Fabolous, Jadakiss, Big K.R.I.T., Nipsey Hussle, and a host of others.
