G.O.O.D. Music head Kanye West has come forward to provide some insight on his long-awaited solo album follow-up to 2013’s Yeezus release.
Although he did not pencil in a drop date, Yeezy said the mysterious LP would not be rushed.
“I’m just living my life. I’m having a good time, I’m with my family, and I’m getting the opportunity to create, work on my clothes, work on my films, work on DONDA, work on the next album, work on it slowly, make it an art project, deliver the innovation I know and that I’ve consistently done since 808s and Dark Fantasy. I’m in my own zone. I can’t walk around trying to defend myself.” (Hot 97)
