Houston rapper Travi$ Scott recently updated fans on the status of hip-hop pal Kanye West‘s long-awaited SWISH album.
According to Scott, Yeezy is taking some serious sacrifices to complete the follow-up to 2013’s Yeezus album.
“I feel like it’s going to be like a very good f*cking good album. This motherf*cker is going in on this album. That n*gga’s not sleeping. N*gga ain’t eating. Sh*t’s crazy. It’s lit. He’s just focusing on this album. He just really wants this album to be the illest so I’m just here to support that.” (Billboard)
A few days ago, G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha T spoke on the importance of getting out Ye’s solo album.
“Personally? Getting these albums out. I started with the prelude with Darkest Before Dawn. We gotta get this Ye album out. The rollout of that is very important. Sean is ready as well. And King Push is going to be coming very, very soon.” (STASHED)
Pusha also spoke out on Ye recently relaunching his G.O.O.D. Music Fridays.
“It’s getting super real. I mean look at the records that Ye just put out. “Real Friends” and “No More Parties in L.A.” have an aesthetic that is just real rap. It’s authentic. The purists are going to love everything that we’re doing. G.O.O.D. Music is the culture so I feel like this year – and every year – is the year for us. I mean if you look at the culture and what it’s doing, they’re always taking something from our pot. Whether it’s sneakers, fashion, music – I mean let’s just be honest! So it’ll definitely be a great year for us.” (STASHED)
After months of anticipation, Yeezy revealed a mid-February drop date on Twitter in early January.
