Kanye West Hires Q-Tip and Rick Rubin for 'Yeezus' Follow-Up


The new album, which the 'Black Skinhead' rapper says is currently in the works, is expected to be released in summer next year.

It has only been several months since Kanye West dropped his "Yeezus". However, the rapper is already working on a new record to follow up his sixth album which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard 200 earlier this year.

West has recruited A Tribe Called Quest's Q-Tip and Def Jam founder Rick Rubin for his upcoming studio effort. "I'm producing Kanye's new album with Rick Rubin, I'm doing that, so that's coming up," Q-Tip revealed in a new interview with Life+Times.

It won't be West's first time to work with both Q-Tip and Rubin. Q-Tip contributed to West's "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" while Rubin, who has been linked to everyone from Jay-Z and Eminem to Adele and Lana Del Rey, had a big role producing "Yeezus".

When visiting Philadelphia's Power 99 late last month, West talked about his plan to put out a new LP by summer next year. "I haven't named my next album but I have started on it," he said at that time. "I write down philosophies all the time. I have some thoughts and I just constantly... everytime I think of it I write it. I'm working on it."
