Kid Cudi gave fans a glimpse at the custom piece gifted to him by the famous jewelry designer and Japanse contemporary artist Takashi Murakami
Five months before 808’s & Heartbreak by Kanye West, Kid Cudi released his mixtape titled A Kid Named Cudi. The mixtape will have changed the landscape of rap forever. Fast forward to his 36th birthday, Kid Cudi commissioned a custom chain from Ben Baller featuring Takashi Murakami.
While the G.O.O.D music crew has been no stranger to art and ice, Cudi gave fans a glimpse at the custom piece. More accurately described as a “f**kin’ masterpiece” the art level of the piece is larger than life posted on Instagram. Last year, Ben Baller graced Cudi with a previous piece as well as gifted custom pieces to singer J Balvin. Inspired by A Bathing Ape’s Nigo and Murakami continue to be the go-to pieces for the art enthusiast entertainers.
