Kanye West to release new album this year
The rapper, who has been touring his Watch The Throne record with Jay-Z, is currently working on the release of the G.O.O.D. Music compilation Cruel Summer, which features artists signed to his label.
Def Jam vice president and multiplatinum producer No I.D. told MTV that West hopes to drop his next studio record after Cruel Summer‘s release.
“He’s coming right after that,” said No I.D., who produced Jay-Z’s ‘Run This Town’ and Big Sean’s ‘My Last’.
“I’m not working on that [Cruel Summer] album, I’m working on his album.
“This is Kanye. You know what to expect from the family. He hasn’t missed yet, so don’t expect him to miss. It’s what you expect and everything you don’t expect.”
West, who was rumored to be interested in making an album full of animal noises, recently unveiled his collaboration with Pusha T from Cruel Summer.
