Kanye West 'Could Release New Album This Year'
DefJam VP reveals that Yeezy's already working on his next solo effort...
Kanye West is set to release his sixth studio album later this year, according to hints dropped by a DefJam record executive.
The hip-hop superstar has been touring Europe recently with his and Jay-Z's Watch The Throne live show - and is also working on the Cruel Summer compilation from his G.O.O.D. Music label.
But it seems there's no rest for the wicked, because DefJam vice president and famed producer No I.D. has let slip that Yeezy is already working on his next full album for release straight after the compilation.
No I.D. said: "He's coming right after that. I'm not working on that [Cruel Summer] album, I'm working on his album.
"This is Kanye. You know what to expect from the family. He hasn't missed yet, so don't expect him to miss. It's what you expect and everything you don't expect."
Kanye revealed earlier this summer that he would like to diversify into building amusement parks - as well as music, film and fashion.
