Murder Inc. founder Irv Gotti isn’t biting his tongue. The hip-hop veteran has come forward to dish out details on his new “Brothers” collaboration with rap heavyweight Kanye West.
According to Gotti, Yeezy came into the picture for his “Tales” banger a couple years ago.
“As you guys know, with ‘Tales,’ I take existing songs and turn them into, like, a movie. When I approached Kanye back in October of 2017, I was like, ‘Yo, I wanna do something special for the culture. I love the hip-hop culture. I’m a huge, like, believer in the hip-hop culture and what it is and I want to do this for the culture.’ I know this sounds cliché-ish but it’s honest. I said, ‘Yo, let’s give them a new song. I’m going to make a two-hour movie to the song and it’ll be the season premiere.’ You know, Kanye rode out with me, man. He was like, ‘That’s a great thing.'” (TMZ)
Earlier this month, the “Tales” creator lit up Instagram with the huge announcement and also revealed music legend Charlie Wilson is featured on the anthem.
The same week, G.O.O.D. Music’s CyHi The Prynce revealed West had remained behind the scenes working on new albums set to arrive before fall.
Speaking with XXL, CyHi reveals that he and ’Ye have put their heads together in the studio to cook up some new heat for various projects, with one of those LPs being his next solo effort. “Me and [Kanye] are working on a few albums,” says CyHi. “So you’ll be getting them by the end of the summer. Also, my solo album as well. So, I’ve just been collecting all my pieces on the game board so when I present it, everybody sees it in a beautiful light. This is going to be five times better than my first album.” (XXL Mag)
Earlier this year, CyHi promised a new “reinvigorated” Ye had multiple albums on deck.
