Kanye West and Kid Cudi to hold album-listening event

KIDS SEE GHOSTS merch including hoodies, T-shirts, blankets, and hats, designed by Virgil Abloh and Murakami, were also handed out to lucky attendees.

Kanye West made headlines last week by holding a listening session at the Diamond Cross Ranch near Jackson Hole, Wyoming, for his new seven-track album, "Ye," and flying in several hundred media and radio types, DJs and celebrities for the event.

Japanese artist Takashi Murakami is behind the newly unveiled album art for Kanye West and Kid Cudi's joint LP, Kids See Ghosts. For instance, Pusha-T appears on the opening track "Feel the Love". The second cut, "Fire", hears 'Ye and Cudi handling all the vocals, though André 3000 does get a co-producer credit.

The Virginia rapper appears on the album's fifth track, "Feel the Love", while Ty Dolla makes an appearance on the sequel to Ye's "Ghost Town" track, "Freeee (Ghost Town Pt. 2)".

Perhaps the most compelling and contemporary use of a sample, though, can be found on the closing song - on streaming services it's titled "Reborn", but Shazam the tune and you'll see it's called "Devil's Watchin". West and Cudi were elated and smiled during the party.

A similar discrepancy pops up on "Cudi Montage", which lists Kurt Cobain as one of the song's co-writers. 4th Dimenson (feat. Louis Prima) 04.
