2013 brought rapper Kanye West a baby girl, an engagement and controversy as rants and outbursts against the fashion industry have fans wondering when Mr. West will ‘wake up’ and start making more music. But, in an interview with Power 99, Kanye revealed that he’s in the process of making a follow up to Yeezus, stating
"I haven't named my next album, but I have started on it. I always write down philosophies all the time, so I'll just have some thoughts and every time I think of it I write, and I'm just collecting beats, I'm just constantly working. I'd like to put out more product, I'd like have another album out by next summer." (NME)
And that isn’t the only thing he’s got brewing. Ye’ also discussed plans to reunite with mentor, friend and fellow rapper Jay-Z for a Watch The Throne part deux. An album from label GOOD Music called Cruel Winter is also in the works.
On Cruel Winter’s failure to launch, West states "We [Jay-Z] think about it, I go back and forth on it. We just keep missing the winter, that's the only problem. We thinking 'bout dropping a Cruel Winter"
Kanye has also been making headlines for his explosive interview with Sway in which he vents about his struggle to break into the world of fashion.
