Kanye West Reveals Kid Cudi Collab 'Kids See Ghost' Will Also Come with a Short Film

Kanye West says Dexter Navy is directing a short film for his collaboration album with Kid Cudi.

Kanye West revealed his collaboration album with Kid Cudi, Kids See Ghost, will be accompanied by a short film helmed by one of the hottest young directors in the game, Dexter Navy.

"Kids See Ghost short film will be shot by Dexter Navy," read one of 'Ye's latest tweets.

Navy, a filmmaker hailing from London, is best known for his work on several projects with the A$AP crew including A$AP Rocky's "L$D" and "A$AP Forever" music videos. The former nabbed a Grammy nomination for Best Video as well an MTV VMA nod for Best Editing. According to his bio , Navy's goal is to "create work that is psychedelic, cinematic and at all times holds an authentic feeling." Sounds about right for a West and Cudi collab. 

West may also be teaming back up with Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, who designed Ye's Graduation album cover. Earlier this week, West tweeted a possible album cover draft for the project with the caption, "Murakami vibes."

As for the short film, this won't be the first time 'Ye dropped one with one of his projects. For My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, he famously released a 34-minute film for the song "Runaway," which he addressed in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

"I'm big on connecting with timeless energy, with people and musicians that I'm around," he said. "When working on "Runaway" [video] with [artist] Vanessa Beecroft, it was very important to not define the time, to not give any labels to the environments that we were in."

Ye and Cudi's album, Kids See Ghost, is set to be released on June 8. It will be one of the many projects Ye has on the way including Nas' albumhis own solo effort, and becoming the most hated man on Twitter.
