Kanye West & Kid Cudi Reveal “Kids See Ghosts” Animated TV Show

Published

on

This morning has proven to be a rather exciting one if you’re a fan of the G.O.O.D Music camp, and specifically, their leader Kanye West. While he’s had his fair share of controversial views and opinions, he’s still *mostly* beloved when it comes to the things he does best: music and design. This morning, he dipped his toe once again in the latter pool, with the massive announcement and “dreams come true” type of situation with The Gap.

Kanye West revealed that he has a 10-year partnership with the once-popular brand to bring his Yeezy design, minus the sneakers, to their stores. The Gap perhaps reached its peak of popularity in the mid to late 90s/early 00s, and Kanye was one of their retail workers during this era. This partnership will surely breathe new life into the semi-struggling fashion retailer.



Now, there’s more from the Kanye camp though. Kid Cudi has just revealed a teaser for an upcoming animated TV series (at least we think it’s a series and not a one-off episode, but we do not yet have confirmation) centered around his joint project with Kanye, Kids See Ghosts. The duo released one self-titled project under the moniker thus far, however it was very well-received, and they have teased a sequel.

For the animated TV series, Kanye and Cudi are turning to Japanese artists Takashi Murakami for the direction, while the voices of ‘Kanye Bear’ and ‘Kid Fox’ are played by Kanye and Cudi respectively. As you can see in the trailer above, Kid Fox and Kanye Bear are going on a bike ride in their suburban neighborhood, when something dark and sinister begins to take over, which seems to be at the hands of this strange tree-lady. This all leads Kid Fox and Kanye Bear on a strange, wild chase.

Kid Cudi excitedly made the announcement via twitter this morning, in his all-caps tweet below.

He followed it up with some fan interaction about the series too. Check out the tweets below, and let us know if you’re excited!

We’ll keep you posted with any updates as to when and where this animated series will land.

Kanye West Reveals 2020 Running Mate, Confirms He Had COVID-19

Published

on

Anybody skeptical about Kanye West’s seemingly spur-of-the-moment announcement that he was running for President should wake up because it’s happening.

In an exclusive interview with Forbes, the recording artist/fashion designer spoke about his platform, revealing his running mate for the upcoming Presidential Election, clarifying which party he’s running for, speaking about a potential vaccine for the coronavirus, and more.



This upcoming election is one of the most important in recent memory. With his previous support of Donald Trump looming over everyone’s heads, West was quick to discuss whether he’s still a fan of the controversial forty-fifth President.

“I am taking the red hat off, with this interview,” he said, revealing that he is no longer on board with Trump’s ideals.

As for which platform he will be running for, West is creating his own. Calling it the Birthday Party, he has said that he’s already got support from Elon Musk and others, and that he’s running so he could win. “Like anything I’ve ever done in my life, I’m doing to win.”

His running mate will be Michelle Tidball, a preacher from Wyoming.

One of the most critiqued aspects of West’s late announcement has been the effect it will have on Joe Biden’s campaign. Many believe that West will only take away from the Black votes and those of young voters, hindering Biden’s campaign to a degree that would give Trump an easy win. He seems to be okay with that.

“I’m not denying it, I just told you. To say that the Black vote is Democratic is a form of racism and white supremacy,” said West about siphoning away the Black vote from Biden.

In addition, West said that he’s never voted in his life, and that he had coronavirus back in February. He has recovered but, apparently, he’s not entirely down with a COVID-19 vaccine. He called vaccines “the mark of the beast.”

His stance on abortion was also made clear, as he said that “Planned Parenthoods have been placed inside cities by white supremacists to do the Devil’s work.”

With all this said, will you be voting for Kanye West in the fall?

A figure in pop culture infamy has reportedly passed away at 58-years-old. Back in the late 1990s, you couldn’t go anywhere without hearing about Mary Kay Letourneau. In 1996, when she was 34-years-old, Letourneau was a schoolteacher who was engaging in a sexual relationship with her 12-year-old, sixth-grade student Vii Fualaau. While awaiting trial, Mark Kay Letourneau gave birth to Fualaau’s child, and she took a plea agreement that stated she would only spend a few months behind bars. She also was required to never have contact with Fualaau again.

However, upon leaving jail, she was caught with Fualaau inside of a vehicle and was sent to prison for seven years. She gave birth to Fualaau’s second child just months into her sentence. When she was released in 2004, she once again reunited with Fualaau and they married the following year. He petitioned the court to remove the mandate keeping them apart, however, she had to remain registered as a sex offender. The couple was together for over a decade before deciding to split.



According to reports, Mary Kay Letourneau quietly battled metastatic cancer before succumbing to the illness on Tuesday (July 7). “Mary, and all of us, found great strength in having our immediate and extended family members together to join her in this arduous struggle,” her family said in a statement. “We did our very best to care for Mary and one another as we kept her close and stayed close together.”

Charlamagne Tha God Is Getting His Own Talk Show

Published

on

Charlamagne Tha God is set to return to television. The  Breakfast Club  host has announced he will have his own weekly Comedy Central talk show, coming to screens in late autumn. 

The details of the arrangement are currently being settled, but from what we know now, Charlamagne will have a weekly half hour segment focusing on current affairs and cultural issues. Although there is no official date set yet, the show’s producers hope to have it up-and-running in time for the presidential election in November. 



Charlamagne’s new partnership with Comedy Central stems from his relationship with Chris McCarthy, the president of the Entertainment and Youth Group at Comedy Central’s parent company ViacomCBS. The two first worked together almost a decade ago, when McCarthy ran MTV2 and Charlamagne was a regular on the network’s breakout hit Guy Code.

“Charlamagne’s voice is very right for today,” McCarthy said, speaking on the newly announced series. “It’s fresh and real and resonating in a way that very few can do.”

Charlamagne says he and McCarthy began discussing ideas for a show right around the time McCarthy took over at Comedy Central. Their close personal relationship, he says, made coming to a business agreement a smooth process. 

Charlamagne stated the show will “[talk] about the issues that are going on in the world,” with a cable news feel, reminiscent of acts like John Oliver and Bill Maher. He says it will not shy away from diving into sensitive subjects. “I’m in the business of asking the tough questions, and getting actual statements on how I see the world. And you can choose to agree or disagree. But a conversation will be started.”
