Speculations and hushed rumours of this brand new follow-up project being in the works were rife since the beginning of the year. The most recent proof came from Memphis emcee Moneybagg Yo who shared a screenshot of a conversation with the artist, which revealed information about a track that they worked on. Additionally, Ye was also seen sweating in the studio alongside DJ Khaled. However, it’s still not confirmed whether this will be included in the record. This will be Kanye West’s 11th studio album release.
Kanye West’s other projects
West released his latest single “Eazy,” featuring the Game, earlier this month. A$AP Rocky, the Game, Moneybagg Yo, and producer Mike Dean are also some of the artists that were recently spotted and photographed in the studio with Ye.
West has been fodder for headlines and tabloids owing to his romance with Uncut Gems star Julia Fox. He also reportedly has a disregarded demand to be given the final cut and approval for the long overdue three part documentary, Jeen-Yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy, which releases on Netflix on February 16.
West will also be one of the headliners at the 2022 Coachella festival.
