AceShowbiz - Seth Rogen is one of a very few lucky people who have listened to new material off Kanye West's new album. The actor, who has been very good friends with the rapper since he and James Franco remade the infamous "Bound 2" music video last year, revealed in an interview for Rolling Stone's latest issue that he was invited for a private listening session of the album when he ran into Kim Kardashian's husband at a New York Hotel.
They met in the lobby and West later asked him to get into his limo van. Not only did Rogen get to enjoy the album before everybody else, but he also had Yeezy freestyle the entire record for him in the limo for two hours.
"There's no lyrics, only beats," Rogen told the magazine. "So he raps the whole album, and after each song, he stops it, like, 'So what do you think?' We were in the van for two hours!"
In the interview, Rogen also revealed that he got to learn something from his experience with West. "Now I realize the next person he sees that he knows is getting pulled into that van," he said. "But I learned a lesson from it, which is that Kanye is seeking input at all times. Processwise, it showed an openness and a fearlessness. We started screening our movies more and in rougher versions for our friends because of that."
West is currently still working on a follow-up to last year's "Yeezus". The new LP currently has no official title and release date. Recently, the star's longtime collaborator Malik Yusef shared some new details and revealed what fans could expect from the record. "It's like a pair of Timberlands; like how Timberlands are not quite leather and not quite suede," he said. "It's not the smooth, slick Chicago music sound we have right now and it's not the ruggedness of just 'hip-hop hip-hop hip-hop.' We're still working like a motherf**ker. We've been all around the world [recording]."
