Kanye West Dropping New Album this Summer

Published April 7, 2010

Kanye West's hiatus may be over sooner than later. The Louis Vuitton Don's fifth album, "Good *ss Job," is reportedly scheduled to hit stores in June.

Billboard reports that Yeezy is currently putting the finishing touches on the LP and has enlisted legendary New York producers, Q-Tip, RZA and Pete Rock for production. Tip recently confirmed working with 'Ye in an interview with Brooklyn Bodega.

"I just try to work with people who I admire or whom I think has got it," he said in a recent interview. "So right now I'm working on Nas' sh*t, about to work with Kanye on his sh*t. Just trying to keep up my momentum. I'm about to work with Talib [Kweli] on his project. I been trying to work with [Jay-Z] for a while so hopefully he'll realize the heat I got and come with it [laughs]."

Drake is also reported to be featured on the CD. West has been relatively quiet for the past six months. As previously reported, he suffered severe backlash after interrupting Taylor Swift's first MTV Video Music Awards acceptance speech this past September.
