Published Sep 20, 2010Kanye West has already proved his love of buzz-worthy music on numerous occasions, most recently by working with Bon Iver's Justin Vernon for the epic track "Monster." Now, the rapper's list of collaborators is getting even cooler, as both M.I.A. and Flying Lotus have hinted that they're working with the producer/rapper.
M.I.A. mentioned that she was in the studio with Kanye on September 16 via Twitter. She wrote, "in the studio with kanye, jus speakin in mark twain quotes." On the same day, Kanye seemingly confirmed they were together with a similar inside joke, tweeting, "What if Mark Twain had a Twitter? His quotes trump Warhol's. Mark, too good or too cynical for people to even understand."
Flying Lotus also suggested that he would be working with Kanye. As Consequence of Sound points out, the producer took to his Twitter on Sunday, September 19 to ask Kanye, "yo are you still rollin thru today?"
It's still unclear whether these and other rumoured tracks will appear on Kanye's upcoming fifth album. The record, which is now rumoured to be called Dark Twisted Fantasy, is still scheduled for a November 16 release date. Until then, the rapper continues to drop free singles every Friday for his G.O.O.D. Friday campaign, the most recent of which is a Mos Def/Raekwon jam called "Lord Lord Lord."
