Kanye West Is ‘Almost Done’ Recording His G.O.O.D. Music Album
The G.O.O.D. Music album from Kanye West and a host of rappers and singers on his label is "almost done," according to Big Sean, who gave MTV News the scoop in a new interview conducted during a break from the video shoot for Wale's 'Slight Work.'
"We're gonna do the G.O.O.D. Music album first; we been working on that," Sean said. "So, me, Kanye, Cudi, CyHi, John Legend, Common, Pusha T, everybody on G.O.O.D., Mr Hudson. We're all working on a new project; it's almost done. We're going to London to finish it up and do the last part of it and working on my album at the same time with 'Ye and everybody."
The record seems to becoming together quickly. Last week, during his Christmas party in London, West previewed some tracks from the album. Just a month earlier, he was still gathering material for the G.O.O.D. project, according to producer Hit-Boy.
"I just sent ‘Ye like 12 beats the other day," Hit-Boy said at the time. "He hit me like, ‘I need joints.’ So we’re just going in.” He added that the album may contain music that didn't make the cut for Kanye's 'Watch the Throne' collaboration with Jay-Z. "We made a lot of music around the time we were working on ‘Watch the Throne,’ so joints will end up where they’re supposed to."
Sean also told MTV his next solo record, the follow-up to his successful debut 'Finally Famous,' should arrive next summer.
