Rick Rubin - Rick Rubin & Kanye West Start Work On Yeezus Sequel

Rap mogul Rick Rubin has confirmed reports suggesting he and Kanye West have started work on a sequel to the hip-hop star's Yeezus album.

In a new Bbc interview the in-demand producer reveals he and Kanye are developing "vocal ideas for things for the next album".

Rubin says, "I love him, I think he’s a great guy, super smart and from a creative standpoint, I can’t think of anyone who has been more consistently great from the time they started making music until now... I think he’s the most consistently great creative person in music today."

And recalling the first time he heard the music for Kanye's last album, the producer adds, "There were loads of great ideas and there were many many tracks and we listened to everything together. He originally came over and said, 'I wanna come play you my new album', and I thought we’d be listening to a finished album. Then we listened to about three hours of music, most of which didn’t have vocals, and at the end I was like, 'Wow, so what’s it gonna be?'

"I’m thinking it’s a year away and he was like, 'Well, I’m putting it out in, like, five to six weeks’. It was just a funny conversation because it was completely normal to him, it’s just the way he works."
