On Sunday, the skies parted and unspeakable joy descended from the heavens as rapper Kid Cudi took to Twitter to tease a new project.


“This is not the world we want. We’re rewriting the script because these rules don’t apply,” he says in the mysterious video. “We’ll be showing up with real people, in real places, in real ways. To inspire positive change. Bravery, courage, and action, uniting to showcase the power of creativity. Let’s create a better future together. We are the exception to the rule. We are the Asterisk Collective.”


The video surfaces a little over a month after he promised new music was on the way.

“I just started the new album! Taking my time w it tho but I’m thinking next year sometime [sic],” he tweeted in October. “Would that be cool? Huh? Tell me? Would that be ok?”

Until told otherwise, it sounds like Cudi’s next studio album is imminent. But we’ll stay tuned for an official announcement.
