Kids See Ghosts

Newsweek International - - CULTURE -

KIDS SEE GHOSTS (GOOD MU­SIC/DEF JAM) Be­fore Kanye West was hang­ing in the Oval Of­fice, he was palling around with Kid Cudi in a stu­dio in Wyoming. The re­sults were far less alarm­ing. Kids See Ghosts is the sound of two deeply trou­bled rap-star friends ex­or­cis­ing demons, declar­ing them­selves re­born and ex­plor­ing eerie, spec­tral tex­tures—a hall­mark of West’s 2008 al­bum, 808s & Heart­break. West claims he and our 45th pres­i­dent share some­thing called “dragon en­ergy” (see Page 44), but we doubt that Don­ald Trump could ef­fort­lessly chop up and rhyme over an 80-year-old Louis Prima sam­ple, as West does on “4th Di­men­sion.”
