Being such an active figure in the music industry, it’s hard to believe that Kanye West‘s last solo project, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, was released way back 18 months ago.Between then and now, West has released Watch The Throne, a powerhouse album in which he collaborated with another prolific Hip-Hop artist: Jay-Z, alongside a number of tracks here in there. Just a few days ago, on July 3rd, West released “New God Flow” with Bronx rapper, Pusha T.
It has been confirmed, however, by Chicago producer and Def Jam executive VP of A&R No I.D. that West has begun work on another solo album as No I.D. himself will be producing the LP. When asked about the direction of West‘s new material, No I.D. had the following to say: “”He hasn’t missed yet. It’s what you expect, and everything you don’t expect. It’s gonna be great.”
Meanwhile, Kanye West has been busy with his GOOD Music compilation Cruel Summer, which features artists signed onto GOOD Music (West‘s own record label), including John Legend, Big Sean, Pusha T, Kid Cudi and more. The album is set to drop on August 7th of this year. While you wait, listen to “New God Flow” below, which happens to be a single off of the upcoming compilation album.
