The revelation came during a Tweet spree of Cudi’s last Friday (December 16), where he posted that he and Thug recorded two songs together last year. One of those, he said, will appear on Cudi’s upcoming ninth album – which is likely to be his final full-length effort – while the other one will be released at Thug’s discretion. According to Cudi, both songs are “fuckin INSANE”, and we “have no idea”.

November saw Cudi confirm that he’s hard at work on the follow-up to ‘Entergalactic’, which arrived back in September alongside an accompanying animated film. The album, Cudi’s eighth, featured singles like ‘Do What I Want’ and the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted ‘Willing To Trust’, as well as other collabs with the likes of Don Toliver and Steve Aoki.
In October, Cudi admitted that he sees himself “nearing the end” of his music career, and is considering a pivot to a new career as a kindergarten teacher.
Also revealed in Cudi’s recent tweet spree was that his 2016 album, ‘Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’, was initially intended to be released as the third instalment of his ‘Man On The Moon’ series. He eventually released the long-awaited trilogy capper in 2020, and said in his tweet about the original plan that he’s “glad things worked out” the way they did because both albums are “perfection to me”.
I feel u becuz ur right. PPDS was originally suppose to be MOTM3 but I named it something diff. Im glad it wasnt tho becuz I needed to be in a better place whenever I did MOTM3. Im glad things worked out. I couldnt be prouder of MOTM3 and PPDS. Theyre both perfection to me https://t.co/mGoI5BAAzy
