    If you're a fan of hip-hop/rap, chances are you're a fan of Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar. They're two of the best to ever do it, and while they appeared together on Kanye's The Life Of Pablo track No More Parties In LA, we've always wanted to hear them work together more. Kanye's previously claimed that the pair have 40 songs together, but they've never surfaced.

    Thankfully, we've received a gift to whet our appetite with an (unofficial) 21-minute album combining their pair's music dropping recently. DJ Toasty Digital has combined Kanye's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and Kendrick's good kid, m.a.a.d city into one beautiful album. Some tracks feature Kanye verses over Kendrick's instrumentals, while others are the other way around.

    There's even a backstory to the album. It's 2050, and the US President is Barron Trump. Kanye has been missing for 30 years, with many speculating he wanted to be out of the public eye. Trump has put together a mission to go colonise one of Jupiter's habitable moons, after Earth finds itself in a pretty dire state.

    Kendrick's been chosen for the mission, and he's being placed inside a cryogenic sleep chamber while they make the six-year trip. He wants to listen to "an album that had always inspired him in moments of uncertainty" - and then the music kicks in...

    It's hard to pick a favourite off the album, but DEVIL IN THE BACKSEAT might just be the highlight. It features the beat of Devil In A New Dress with Kendrick's verses from Backseat Freestyle on top, and it's perfect for getting hyped up on a long car ride.

    Check out the album, titled GOOD KID TWISTED FANTASY below. If this is what 2050 is set to sound like, maybe it's time to start building a time machine?
