Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West has cleared up recent rumors about his long-awaited follow-up to last 2013’s Yeezus album.
Appearing on the “Ellen” show, Kanye revealed he did not have a title nailed down to the upcoming release.
“We’re still trying to find it, trying to find the vibe,” he says. “You know, this transition from what I felt when I did Yeezus, to what I feel now. We’re just creating, so we haven’t found it yet.” (“The Ellen Show”)

Rumors about Kanye and Paul working together bubbled online a few days prior.
According to Ibn Jasper, Kanye’s close friend and barber of almost 20 years, Paul will co-produce the entirety of the album, so we’re likely to hear a good deal of those tracks Ty was talking about. Ibn also cleared up the confusion over whether the just-released “FourFiveSeconds” was now a Rihanna song or would be saved for Yeezy’s album. The answer is both, as the Roc Nation-signed artists will each put the song on the final tracklist of their respective releases. (HNHH)
A few weeks ago, actor Seth Rogen dished out details about Mr. West inviting him and his wife into a limousine van to treat them to a live performance of his next album.
“It was one of the most surreal experiences of my entire life,” Rogen explained in an interview with media mogul Howard Stern. “We had just come out with the ‘Bound 3’ parody video about three months earlier — I heard someone behind me go, ‘Yo!’ and it was Kanye West. … He’s always been incredibly f*cking cool to me and he’s a big comedy fan — he was like, ‘You want to hear some of my new sh*t now?’ I was like, ‘Yeah!’ … He’s like, ‘This is my new album, I’m still working on it, it’s not going to come out for awhile. This is still an unreleased album. It hasn’t come out yet and he starts clicking through the tracks and there’s no lyrics. It’s just the beats and the hook so he literally just stands up and starts rapping the whole [album]. He’s standing and jumping around! … We were like this is the greatest f*cking thing that’s happened.” (“The Howard Stern Show”)
