Earlier this year, Rick Rubin revealed that there was enough material left from the Yeezus sessions to release a second installment of the album. Now, Kanye West has revealed that he will will most likely release a project that contains the tracks that were left off of the album.
During a recent interview with Big Boy’s Neighborhood on LA’s Power 106, Kanye West revealed that by years end, he will most likely release a project, with songs unused on his latest album, Yeezus.
It’s like five songs that didn’t make it on Yeezus that we might put out later this year.
As noted above, earlier this year, before Kanye West’s Yeezus was released, Rick Rubin hinted that a second installment of the album may be released as he stated that there is enough material left over from his time recording with Kanye to release another album.
Initially, he [Kanye] thought there were going to be 16 songs on the album. But that first day, before he even asked me to work on it, I said, “Maybe you should make it more concise. Maybe this is two albums. Maybe this is just the first half.” That was one of the first breakthroughs. Kanye was like, “That’s what I came here today to hear; It could be 10 songs!”
As Rick Rubin mentioned that Ye said at the time, Yeezus could contain only 10-tracks, and it did. It’s quite possible that Kanye, after speaking with Rick Rubin, had it planned all along to release two installments of Yeezus, only time will tell.
Yeezy made the announcement sometime during the nearly 2-hour long interview that we posted it earlier today. If you missed it, or have time to watch it out now, check out the interview post [here].
