Kanye West and Kid Cudi debuted their first collaborative album, "Kids See Ghosts", at a listening party in Santa Monica, California, on Thursday night, but the rollout did not go off without a few technical difficulties. Stream it below via TIDAL or over on Google Play.
To bring you as close to the action as possible and make sure you don't miss out on anything that went down at the Kids See Ghosts listening party, we've put together a summary of everything noteworthy that went down. (Which isn't surprising, since Kanye's last party there got all rappers banned.) As revealed earlier this week, the Kids See Ghosts artwork was designed by Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, who also did the iconic cover for 2007's Graduation.
The album features a handful of guest appearances. Produced by evan mast, Dot Da Genius, Plain Pat, and Cudi, The seventh song contains a sample of the track "Burn The Rain" by Kurt Cobain, a home recording made by the Nirvana frontman in the 90s and released on the collection Montage of Heck in 2015.
The song's title is hard to confirm, due to multiple versions of the Kids See Ghosts tracklist that have been floating around.
The Kids See Ghosts track itself is both bleak and uplifting, balancing verses about struggle and turmoil with a refrain of "Stay strong / Save me, Lord". 4th Dimenson (feat. Louis Prima) 02.
