Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West has recruited T.I. to assist him on his upcoming Good A** Job album, which is set to drop this fall.
According to Grand Hustle's DJ Drama, T.I. traveled to West's studio to help contribute to the project.
"He just got back from Hawaii," Drama told radio personality DJ Whoo Kid during a broadcast on Saturday (July 24) referring to T.I.. "He was out there with Kanye, working on Kanye's album. [His] movie's coming out August 27th. Takers." (Radio Planet TV)
Young Money rapper Nicki Minaj is also reportedly featured on the album.
BET's Executive Vice President of Entertainment and Music Programming Stephen Hill was one of the lucky few invited to hear Mr. West's eagerly-anticipated new project. "He's got a track with Nicki Minaj that's so dope," he exclusively revealed to Rap-Up.com. "You won't believe it when you hear it." The executive has heard four cuts from the album, tentatively titled Good A** Job. "He comes back unapologetic and his performance [at the BET Awards] was stellar, absolutely stellar," he said. Hill described the direction as more reminiscent of the rapper's first three albums. "It's less like 808s & Heartbreak and more like Graduation." (Rap-Up)
Young Money's Drake recently shared his views on the rap star's forthcoming release.
"I'm very much looking forward to the Kanye West album because I need to be scared and inspired for my second joint," Drake told radio personality Funkmaster Flex. "That ['Power'] record just had to happen. Kanye's a genius and I'm super excited for the rest of the album because I've heard some things that people haven't heard." ("Sucker Free")
Earlier this year, G.O.O.D. Music's Big Sean revealed that West's new album will hit stores in September.
"September 14, 2010 My album Finally Famous x Kanye West album Good A** Job x Kid Cudi album Man on the Moon pt 2 RT #GOODMUSIC," he wrote on Twitter. (Big Sean's Twitter)
