Published Jun 28, 2018If you thought the recent onslaught of Kanye West-affiliated releases was a lot, brace yourself — the rapper/producer has said that he wants to keep the weekly release schedule in motion for a full year in the future.
Speaking about his recent interview with West in Wyoming on the Popcast podcast, New York Times writer Jon Caramanica revealed that the rapper at one point said he wants to "make 52 records in 52 weeks."
Whether or not Ye's record-a-week plan comes to fruition, there's currently plenty of fresh material to digest with his latest solo record ye and his collaborative project with Kid Cudi called Kids See Ghosts, as well a West-produced records from Pusha-T, Nas and Teyana Taylor.
"Take that for what you will," Caramanica added skeptically.
To be fair, Caramanica's doubt is understandable, considering the less-than-smooth rollout of West's recent made-in-Wyoming projects.
Pusha-T's DAYTONA caused the rap beef of the year, Nas' album Nasir has been criticized for its tone-deafness and Taylor's K.T.S.E. ran into multiple sample clearance issues.
Caramanica also claimed that Yeezy wants to get a permanent place in Wyoming to spend more time there — which would also give him somewhere to host future listening parties since the previous venue doesn't want him back.
