If the seven-track brevity of Kanye West and Kid Cudi's Kids See Ghosts left you clamoring for more, you're in luck. In a new cover story chat with Billboard, Cudder teased more Ghosts-related releases and opened up about the variety of creative projects he currently has in the works.
"It was always seven," Cudi said. "There are some songs that we didn't use that I’m hopeful we can put out later. But the plan is to do more Kids See Ghosts albums." Cudi believes he and West will "always" produce "awesome shit" together, which is an objective fact. "We just have this chemistry that's undeniable, especially when we have to fight for it with each other," he said, adding that Ghosts took "a little over a year-and-a-half to just get it tight," though the songwriting itself wasn't difficult. "It's really easy for us."
Cudi also revealed that he’s been covertly putting together a TV show over the last four years. The untitled potential series, backed by Jordan Peele's Monkeypaw Productions, is now in "early development." A Cudi x A.P.C. collaborative collection is also in the pipeline. "I definitely know myself better than I ever have," Cudi said of his current vibes. "I've arrived at this point of feeling 34. When I was 30, I didn't feel 30. I still felt younger than my age. I felt like I was going to get some type of wisdom, something was going to hit me when I turned 30. It didn't happen. It came a little later for me, but it's here, and it feels great."
Turning 34, Cudi added, also brought him a sense of peace. "I'm the best I've ever been in my life," he said. "I realized I was genuinely happy, and there's nothing really going on in particular. Just being 34, to be still doing what I love. Taking care of my responsibilities, and my daughter's good and my family's good. Creating is making me happy again."
