Kid Cudi has shared a teaser for a new CGI animated series based upon Kids See Ghosts, his 2018 collaborative project with Kanye West. Directed by Takashi Murakami, who also provided the cover artwork for Kanye West’s Graduation, the new trailer features the iconic Kanye West bear used by the rapper to promote his first three LPs – The College Dropout, Late Registration, and Graduation. Check it out below.
The bear is voiced by West, while Cudi is voicing a new character called Kid Fox. According to the credits, sound design was done by Cudi and William J. Sullivan. No release date for the series has been announced as of yet, but Cudi said that it is “coming soon” in a tweet.
Last year, Cudi revealed in a cover story for Complex that “there will definitely be more” Kids See Ghosts albums in the future, adding that “Kanye already told me he wants to start working on the second one. It’s kinda weird, ’cause with the first album, I didn’t know how serious he was about making a collab album with me.”
