In an interview with Zane Lowe on BBC’s Radio 1, longtime rap/rock/country producer Rick Rubin confirmed he will be working with Kanye West yet again for part II of West’s 2013 release Yeezus. The “Black Skinhead” rapper is planning on sending out the follow-up to his highly-praised sixth album by the end of the year, and, naturally, Rubin is on board as producer once again.
In the interview, Rubin also confirms that fellow producers Q-Tip and Evian Christ are helping out with Yeezus, part II, which apparently will be made up of only eight tracks (at least, according to West from a previous interview from December 2013). It’s apparently not going to be as abrasive as Yeezus: Kanye’s new project is said to be a mixture of soul samples with West’s trademark raps.
There’s no release date, let alone title for Kanye & Rick’s Yeezus sequel, but as mentioned, it should be out by the end of 2014.
