It’s been a good week for one Kanye West. First, he and his best buddy Jay-Z won awards for “Best Group” and “Video of the Year” at last Sunday’s BET Awards. Then, another track from his upcoming G.O.O.D. Music collaboration (Cruel Summer) leaked, proving that yes, the dude is still on top of his game.
Now for some even better news: a new Kanye solo album is on the way. While he was at the ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Music Awards in L.A., Grammy-winning producer No I.D. admitted to MTV News that he personally is not working on Cruel Summer. Instead, he’s on the clock for Kanye’s sixth album, which is slated to come out sometime after Cruel Summer‘s August 7 release date.
When pressed for more details, No I.D. gave vague but tantalizing hints: “You know what to expect when it’s him. He hasn’t missed yet; I don’t expect him to miss. I just support in whatever way I can…It’s what you expect and everything you don’t expect. It’s going to be great.” Watch the full interview below.[Hypetrak/Hip Hop DX]
