Kanye West Confirms Dr. Dre Version Of "Jesus Is King" & More Projects Coming Soon
It's been a busy day for Kanye West. The multihyphenate artist kicked off today by giving us the first glimpse of his new Yeezy collaboration with the GAP, a partnership that's been a long time coming for the designer. Following this exciting news came Kid Cudi's announcement that the Kids See Ghosts duo are getting their own animated show based on their 2018 joint project. Cudi shared a teaser trailer for the series, directed by Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, which sees both artists voicing cartoon animals by the names of Kanye Bear and Kid Fox.
Then, Kanye took to Twitter again to list off the myriad of forthcoming projects he's got in store. Along with the Kids See Ghosts cartoon and GAP collection, for which Mowalola Ogunlesi will serve as design director, Kanye unloaded a whole slew of news about his upcoming work. Among these exciting ventures is the highly-anticipated sequel to Ye's 2019 album, Jesus Is King, in collaboration with Dr. Dre. Ye also revealed that the Jesus Is King film, which he released in IMAX theatres last October, will be receiving a digital release on Apple Music in the near future. His Nick-Knight directed Yeezy documentary will also be getting an official release.
In addition, Ye also tells us that a music video helmed by cinematographer, Arthur Jafa, for a song titled "Wash Us In The Blood" is on the way. Last month, Jafa spilled that Ye's new album was tentatively titled God's Country, and that he'd worked on some visuals for the first single off the album; however, there's no mention of God's Country in Ye's news dump. Finally, Ye mentions that the Yeezy foam runner, the first American-manufactured product from the brand, will be released soon. It really is the #WESTDAYEVER.
