Kid Cudi's New Album Includes Two Guest Appearances by André 3000

Also making appearances are Pharrell Williams, Travis Scott and Willow Smith.

Earlier this month, before calling out Kanye West and Drake on social media, Kid Cudi promised his fans that they'd have his new album Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’ in their headphones before the end of September.

While it's possible that Cudder could still unleash his new full-length as a surprise this Friday, September 30—fulfilling his promise of delivering the LP before the month's conclusion—it's more than likely today's unveiling of the project's finalized tracklist will have to tide over fans until a formal release date is announced.

We already knew the album would be 18 tracks deep and that Cudi had worked with both Pharrell Williams and Travis Scott on new material, but the news that will certainly have the internet talking is André "3 Stacks" Benjamin appearing on not one, but two records. (At least that is what happened when André's vocals turned up on Kanye's The Life of Pablo, Frank Ocean's Blonde and Travis Scott's BITTSM.)
