Kanye West Finds Kid Cudi’s New Album ‘Super Inspiring’

‘Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’’ is out now with a Kanye co-sign

In the months following Kid Cudi’s rehab stay for depression and suicidal urges, Kanye West has been supportive of the rapper's recovery and shown it by getting his crowds to sing for his sake.

Now, as he comes out of a dark period of his own, he's stating his admiration for Cudi in plain terms.

Cudi dropped his new album Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin' digitally December 16 (and will follow that up with a physical release on December 25), and West was quick to call it "super inspiring." Given what Cudi's recently gone through, and West's own hospitalization to address sleep deprivation–inducing temporary psychosis and dehydration, West's compliment goes a lot deeper than two simple words.

(It'll probably score West two hugs instead of one, too.)
