Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West continues to inspire and draw attention by teaming up with Young Money's Tyga to executive produce his new Gold Album.

Tyga announced Yeezy's full-fledged involvement on the project this week.

"Kanye executive producing that, so it's gonna be a crazy album," Tyga said in an interview. "It's just good to have people like him [and] Wayne. They're all these people I grew up on. To really be mentored by the greats, it just puts you in that running." ("Big Boy's Neighborhood")

Recent reports revealed Kanye would link up with producer James Blake.

West has also been working to get into the studio with James Blake, according to Rolling Stone. However, despite the mutual affection, Blake is not interested in working in separate locations, which has made things a bit more difficult. "I have been in contact with him... You know, the way that I like to work is bare bones and personal. I think because Kanye's such an accomplished producer, if I was to work with him, then I think we could do something together, and just together, you know?" (Design Trend)

While details were initially scarce, the Young Money stud informed the world of what's stirring up with him and Kanye via Instagram.

Are you ready for a T-Raww and Yeezus collaboration? Fresh off the release of his mixtape Well Done 4, Tyga hit the studio with none other than Kanye West. The Cash Money rapper took to Instagram to share a photo of him working with the G.O.O.D. Music mastermind. "Raww x Yeezus," tweeted Tyga. Details of their collaboration are scarce, but Tyga is readying his new album The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty, which has already spawned the Justin Bieber-assisted single "Wait for a Minute." (Rap-Up)

Last month, Kanye's fiancée Kim Kardashian and Tyga's girlfriend Blac Chyna showed off their fronts and backs with some steamy photos.

Kim Kardashian's first Instagram uploads of the new year--that aren't oldies for Flashback Friday nor cute baby pics of Nori West--have the internet under pressure, which given her MO, is definitely by design. The two pictures show her and bestie/fellow rapper baby mama Blac Chyna flaunting both their front and backsides with the caption "Getting right for the new year" and the prayer emoji. The year 2014 is barely four days old, but keep doing whatever it is you're doing, ladies. It's already working. (Complex)
