G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha T has updated fans on hip-hop pal Kanye West‘s long-awaited SWISH album and revealed his stance toward a follow-up to 2012’s Cruel Summer compilation.
Although he has not worked on the album, Pusha raised the stakes for Ye’s delayed LP.
“I haven’t worked on it at all, but everything I’ve heard is phenomenal and it has nothing to do with any of the other records that were released before. That’s all I can really say about it. He’s super meticulous about the messaging about his album but you guys are in for a treat.” (Rolling Stone)
The Pusha Man also admitted he wanted a follow-up to Cruel Summer to come together.
“That’s definitely on my mood board. I’m totally on that and I’m going to make that happen. That is a goal of mine and I reach my goals.” (Rolling Stone)
Although brief with details, Yeezy promised fans could expect a “sonic-painting” when the album comes out earlier this month.
“I don’t want to overly describe it or overly try to hype it up. I’ve been working slow. I had a while to work on it and I separated a couple of tracks – and gave them to other people like ‘Four Five Seconds’ to Rihanna and the joint on the Weeknd album, ‘Tell Your Friends.’ I [have] still kept working trying to find [what will appear] on my album. I’m just going into the lab every night. It’s sounding good, it’s like a sonic painting and it gets better and better every week.” (Real 92.3)
Recently, G.O.O.D. Music affiliate Travi$ Scott said the delayed solo effort would be worth the wait.
“And man, that Kanye album? OK. Let me hang up before it gets crazy! [laughs] That Ye album is nothing to sleep on and that Ye album is coming very soon. It’s lit. G.O.O.D. Music.” (Beats 1)
