The Kids See Ghosts live stream was due to begin at 8 p.m PST/11 p.m EST ahead of the album’s official release. But for reasons not explained, the live stream didn’t switch on until 1:15am Friday, well after the advertised time. Ghosts didn’t materialize until 1:45am. The album was expected to drop on streaming services at midnight, but it too is late.
The long wait tested the patience of Cudi and Kanye’s fans, many of whom shared their frustrations on social media.
Been waiting for this Kanye/Cudi livestream for way too long

Early Thursday morning, Cudi took to Twitter to share a download link for WAV, the same app Kanye used to preview his Ye album listening event at a Wyoming ranch last week. West also took to Twitter to share a link to the app. Check it out below.
