Ahead of its long-awaited release on Friday, Pusha T finally let fans in on details about his highly anticipated upcoming album, It’s Almost Dry.

On social media Tuesday, the New York rapper shared the album’s cover art and 12-song track list, which boasts features from fellow artists Jay-ZPharrellYe and Kid Cudi. But, in tandem with the release of the song list, Cudi revealed some news of his own — his collaboration with Ye, aka Kanye West, on “Rock N Roll,” will be the last of its kind. 

In a Twitter post, Cudi alerted fans never to expect music from the two rappers again saying, “Hey! So I know some of you heard about the song I got w Pusha. I did this song a year ago when I was still cool w Kanye. I am not cool w that man. He’s not my friend and I only cleared the song for Pusha cuz thats my guy. This is the last song u will hear me on w Kanye -Scott”

The decision allegedly stems from Ye’s decision not to include Kid Cudi on Donda 2, due his friendship with “you know who.” In the now-deleted Instagram post, fans speculated Ye was referring to Cudi’s relationship with SNL star Pete Davidson, who has been dating his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian.

Ye and Cudi have a history of an on-and-off-again friendship, dating back to their 2013-14 social media argument which led to the first of a few public reunions. 

Whether or not Cudi and Ye will mend things this time around is unknown. What is certain is Pusha’s promise to deliver his fourth studio album, It’s Almost Dry, on Friday, April 22.
