Kanye West to release new studio album this year?
The anticipation and hype builds each day for Kanye West's upcoming collaborative, G.O.O.D Music album, Cruel Summer. Ready to drop in August, the album features a host of names including Big Sean and 2 Chainz. Recent rumours have now suggested that West is also due to release his own studio album later this year. Long time collaborator No I.D. stated that Kanye is ready to release his new album coming straight after Cruel Summer and has been experimenting with animal noises.
The producer has been working on tracks for what will be Kanye West's sixth studio album stating. "I'm working on his album. This is Kanye. You know what to expect from the family. He hasn't missed yet, so don’t expect him to miss."
Cruel Summer is released August 7th. [via MTV News]
