Psychedelic pop duo MGMT have been running in lofty circles recently. Despite news this summer that the two would be featured in a collaboration with Jay-Z on the former’s Blueprint 3, this week’s leak of that record proved otherwise. Still, NME is reporting today that MGMT will be appearing on another hotly-anticipated hip hop record, that of Kanye West protegé Kid Cudi. The song is entitled “Pursuit of Happiness (Nightmare),” a collabo that will also include electro-onomatopoeia duo Ratatat. This is some pretty hip shit. Like, REALLY hip. That Kid Cudi is like the coconut water of rappers right now. Or wait, maybe that’s Drake. Either way, witness further the hipster-hop coalescence.
