Kanye West has been laying a little lower than usual over the past couple months. He’s been MIA from Kim Kardashian’s social media feed (although that could be because there just isn’t enough room for him between the selfies and apologies). Page Six says Kanye is hiding out in Japan at the moment. I wish I could say he’s there doing car commercials, but it’s not nearly that exciting or glamorous.
Kanye is reportedly in Japan working on a secret “surprise project” with his former padawan-turned enemy-turned friend again Kid Cudi. Both Kanye and Kid Cudi took a mental health time-out around the same time last year. According to a source, they’re working together, just the two of them and an engineer, on a collaboration that they will most likely drop out of the blue. The source says:
“They’re going to drop some surprise project on everybody. They’re recording it now.” They’re keeping the lid so tight that “nobody knows what it is – or what it sounds like. There are no professionals in the room.”
Well, there is one professional in the room; professional egotist Kanye West.
If I had to guess what the title of this surprise collaboration is, my money is on something simple and subtle with an air of mystery, like Fuck You Tidal and Fuck Jay-Z or Oh Yeah? Well I’ve Got A New Best Friend Now. Or maybe Kanye will just make Kid Cudi legally change his name to Cud-E. Only time will tell!
But you do have to wonder why Kanye picked Japan. Is it because it was the farthest location from Calabasas without getting in a rocket and blasting off to Mars? Or maybe Kanye chose Japan because he had a score to settle. “Attention citizens of Japan. I am seeking the creature who goes by the name Godzilla. Show yourself! There is only one God, and his name is Kanye West!”
