On Monday, Pusha T revealed the release date of his upcoming album It’s Almost Dry is this Friday, April 22. The record was produced entirely by Kanye West and Pharrell Williams. The rapper said the album also included a collaboration between West and Kid Cudi called “Rock N Roll.”
Cudi recently took to Twitter to address his tumultuous relationship with West after Pusha T’s announcement of their collaboration, saying, “I did this song a year ago when I was still cool w Kanye. I am not cool w that man. He’s not my friend and I only cleared the song for Pusha cuz that’s my guy. This is the last song u will hear me on w Kanye.”
Back in February, the two had a falling out after West was reportedly upset with the rapper’s friendship with ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s new boyfriend, Pete Davison. Because of that, West said Cudi would not be featured on Donda 2 due his friendship with Davidson.
Cudi later responded, saying he didn’t want to be on the album with West. West continued to attack his former friend on social media, posting anti-Kid Cudi and anti-Davidson photos that have since been deleted.
Since then, the two have remained on bad terms, which makes it no surprise that the rappers refuse to work together. According to Pitchfork, the news publication has tried to reach out to both of them on the matter, but has received no response.
