Kanye West gives catalog hits a gospel touch at new Sunday serviceT Kanye West Rainbow Hair

As fans await a release date for the upcoming ninth studio album from Kanye West, they can at least enjoy some new material from the artist. Recently, West got together with Kids See Ghosts collaborator Kid Cudi, drummer Tony Williams, and singer 070 Shake to perform a Sunday service at church.

Accompanied by a large choir, the group performed gospel renditions of various Kanye hits, including the Late Registration (2005) classic “Heard ‘Em Say,” “Reborn” from the Kid Cudi linked Kids See Ghosts (2018), and “Violent Crimes” from his latest solo album, Ye. Although there’s no footage from the actual performance, fans can thank Kim Kardashian West‘s Instagram story for recording a large portion of the rehearsal.

West confirmed an upcoming appearance on comedian Joe Rogan’s famed podcast, which should give updates on his music plans for 2019.

Look, I’ve never been on Jeopardy! (obviously!?), but I’d imagine it’s really stressful. I get enough questions wrong in the comfort of my own home, and some of my mistakes are pretty stupid, so I have sympathy for anyone that’s actually up there clicking the buzzer with Alex Trebek breathing down your neck. I say … More »

Kid Cudi interviewing Jaden Smith might be the best thing in hip-hop news all month. Appearing in The New Vanguard Issue of VMAN40, the topic at hand was sparked when Smith congratulated Kid Cudi on his most recent project, Kids See Ghost, and how generally well-received the Kanye-assisted release was. As Cudi begins talking about how much of a dream it was to work with Ye himself, he sneaks in a note on how he and Jaden should collaborate on a project as well. Perhaps the snippet is less an idea in passing and more or a foreshadowing to a future rap collaboration with serious multi-generational appeal.

Cudi offers, “Maybe one day we’ll do an album bro,” to Smith. Of course, the “Icon” rapper is all for it. Smith responds, “I’ll have to get a few more albums under my belt. I’m going to have to grow, but that would be the biggest dream of mine.”

The Man on the Moon crooner continues by praising Smith on how young he started his music career. What’s more — just last year in a Reddit AMA, Jaden Smith revealed his dream collaboration was Kid Cudi. Talk about putting things into existence, fingers crossed for this one.
