Kids See Ghosts is the eponymous debut studio album by American hip hop duo Kids See Ghosts, composed of rapper/producers Kanye West and Kid Cudi. It was released on June 8, 2018, through GOOD Music and distributed by Def Jam Recordings. Prior to the release, West and Cudi enjoyed a strong relationship as close friends and musical collaborators since meeting in 2008, and expressed a desire to record a collaborative album. However, an album never initially materialized, with the duo instead experiencing brief fallings-out in 2013 and 2016. They reunited a year later, when the first studio sessions for the album began.
