It’s been a wild ride for Kid Cudi over the last decade or so. The 35-year-old rapper has released a number of musical projects including the likes of Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’ (2016), the collaborative joint with Kanye West, Kid See Ghosts (2018) and also opened up about his battle with his mental health and in particular depression.
Now in his first meeting in 11 years with fashion mogul and A Bathing Ape founder Nigo with Complex, the Surfin’ rapper has confirmed that he’s got another solo album in the pipeline. The album, titled Entergalatic, is said to be the soundtrack for his upcoming Netflix series that he is writing and executive producing with Kenya Barris.
“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,” Cudi told Complex.

The superstar rapper also let slip that there’s gonna be another “Kids See Ghosts” with Kanye West in the works. The sophomore collab album between the duo will act as a sequel to the critically acclaimed seven-track album that was released during Kayne’s GOOD Music rollout in June last year.
“There will be more Kids See Ghosts albums,” he announced. “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.’”
As the news of two impending albums from Cudi fills us with joy, we were dangerously close to not hearing any music from him for five years as he proclaimed that he considered taking a lengthy break from music after the release of Kids See Ghosts. “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.”
There’s no word for when those albums of the Netflix series will be released as of yet, but be sure to stay in the cut for when those dates get announced.
