Kanye West

Earlier today we named Kanye West’s Yeezus our favorite album of 2013, and now we’ve got some news about his followup album (i.e., the one he’s compared to Born In The U.S.A.).

In an interview for Jay Z’s Life + Times, Q-Tip says that he and Rick Rubin will be producing the record. Go to around 8:00 in this clip:

In other Kanye West news, as promised adidas has confirmed that they will be partnering with the rapper throughout 2014. They released the following statement:

“For 2014, we welcome to the adidas family one of the most influential cultural icons of this generation, Kanye West. Well known for breaking boundaries across music, film and design and partnering with our history in street wear culture and leading innovations in sport, we look forward to creating a new chapter. Details to follow.”

Finally, you’ll see more Kanye in Season 9 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, premiering next year. Check him out in this teaser, which includes a brief shot of his marriage proposal.

  1. Excited about Q-Tip, indifferent about Rick Rubin.

  2. hasn’t q-tip worked on the last 3 lp’s? no beats on the final release. john stossel.

  3. No. Rubin is better as an executive producer, I really enjoyed Yeezus, and I think he definitely had a part in that, but I don’t want more billy squier sampling or any rock sampling for that matter, or any bs like MMLP2. I wouldn’t be surprised if they sampled born in the U.S.A. on it. Hopefully Q-Tip brings some sense to the album. I also wish Kanye would get back into producing his own stuff, the beats he made for Pusha T’s “My Name is My Name” were excellent, especially “Numbers on the Boards”.

  4. “Well known for breaking boundaries across music, film and design”

    Uh, no. The only person that thinks that is Yeezy himself. Music? Sure. But the dude hasn’t made any significant contribution to film or design so let’s take it easy with perpetuating his self-aggrandizement. He may be a big fan of film and design, but that doesn’t mean he’s accomplishing anything there.

    I’m a huge fan of fried chicken but I don’t expect anyone to call me Colonel.
