Kanye West & Kid Cudi Pay a Visit to Takashi Murakami's Tokyo Studio

Sparking rumors of a collab.

By //Music

Speculations of a collaboration between Kanye West and Kid Cudi arose this past July when the pair alongside Plain Pat was seen exiting a studio together in Los Angeles, California. Rumors of them working together are hot once again with the hip-hop luminaries having recently paid a visit to Takashi Murakami’s studio in Tokyo, Japan. The acclaimed Japanese contemporary artist took to Instagram this Friday morning to post a group photo of himself with ‘Ye and Cudder. The caption on Murakami’s post stated, “Long time no see @kidcudi and #kanyewest. Thank you for coming to my studio. It was fire.”

The former A&R of West’s G.O.O.D Music label, Greg Lewis, alongside Coodie Rock who is a film director and co-owner of Creative Control LLC were also present in Murakami’s studio — having shared their own group photos with the same caption “Coming Dec 31st! #EVERYBODYWINS #GODisGREAT.”

An official statement has not been announced regarding a musical project between Kanye and Cudi. The whole thing could just be a friendly hangout. Also, wouldn’t it be cool if Murakami designed the album cover artwork for it? (i.e. Graduation 2007) Nevertheless, check out the photos and let us know your thoughts.

Long time no see @kidcudi and #kanyewest. Thank you for coming to my studio. It was fire ???
