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."
