Kanye West may not have a title for his new album yet, but he’s slowly growing his close circle of collaborators. Just days after Yeezy himself was snapped in the studio with fellow Chicago rapper King Louie, it appears two of his Grammy Family members, Pusha T and Consequence, have officially buried the hatchet in the name of his new project.

“And so it begins…”

I’m a Cudi stan to the grave, but I’ll admit it’s been tough supporting Scott Mescudi recently. His last three projects — WZRD, Indicud and Satellite Flight — felt like Space Camp raps compared to his Man on the Moon series. It’s clear he’s more intent on breaking Hollywood than shaping hip-hop these days. And then there’s the Twitter beefs: in the last month alone he’s threatened to sue Chuck Inglish over a record he didn’t even leak and threw shade at Lupe Fiasco, one of the few artists “who really cared about [Cudi’s] well being when this biz was ripping you apart.”

With that said, this is still the same guy who made Man on the Moon and Man on the Moon II — two albums that soundtracked both the highs and lows of my adolescence — so I’ll always have that sweet spot for Cudi. He’s kinda like the Jackie Aprile Jr. to my Tony Soprano: Jackie dropped out of college, messed around with drugs and broke Meadow’s heart, but he was still the kid of one of Tony’s closest friends and colleagues, so he was always there for him (until a certain straw finally broke the camel’s back, of course).

All this is to say that Kid Cudi needs Man on the Moon III. He needs to get back with Plain Pat and Emile. He needs to surround himself with those positive influences that helped him become our big brother in the first place. He can do without the drugs and the desire to produce an album all by himself. He just needs to get back on that spaceship with his old co-pilots and tell us what it’s like to live on the moon again.

Chris Brown appears to be finally getting his shit together after being released from prison (for good this time, we hope) earlier this month. Diving right back into the studio isn’t a bad way to stay on the straight and narrow, and Breezy’s doing just that as he was snapped in a session last night with good friend Tyga and Lil Boosie, who has also been steady on his grind since leaving the pen. Per Tyga’s caption, it sounds like they were working on his and Chris’ upcoming Fan of a Fan 2 mixtape.

Loyal” has kept Breezy alive and well from behind bars, but now it’s on him to capitalize on his comeback. Can we just get him on a DJ Mustard beat real quick?
