After a short-lived beef with Kanye West and Drake on Twitter, Kid Cudi has revealed a ton of information about his upcoming album, “Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin,” which will be out later this week. While it was originally believed the album would be a sequel to his “Man on the Moon” series, Cudi revealed it would be a separate album. Ahead of its release date, here’s everything we know about the album.
