Ahead of the album release, Cudi sat down with Zane Lowe, here’s a summary of the key-points that Cudi revealed:

  • He recorded 12 songs in 2 weeks before he stepped back to examine if the songs were album worthy. 
  • Lyrically, the album is his most thought-provoking
  • Travis Scott pushed him to rap more. According to Cudi, Travis told him “I love when you rap”
  • He experiments with ad-libs for the first time on the album, but with his own spin to it
  • Dot and Plain Pat worked with Pop Smoke which is how “Show Out” happened, Cudi hopped on the song to prove he “has bars”
  • Cudi was uncertain after the reception of ‘Speedin Bullet 2 Heaven’. Now, he wants to release albums every other year
  • He reveals he constantly wants to impress Kanye West, and that ‘Kids See Ghosts’ was a turning point. 

He also spoke to John David Washington and spoke about the album further.
