As if you weren't excited enough about Kanye West's upcoming seventh solo album, here's another reason to get excited: We know what it's going to sound like.
Like a pair of boots.
"This album is different," Kanye collaborator and G.O.O.D. Music artist Malik Yusef said to Rolling Stone. "It's like a pair of Timberlands; like how Timberlands are not quite leather and not quite suede. It's not the smooth, slick Chicago music sound we have right now and it's not the ruggedness of just 'hip-hop hip-hop hip-hop.' We're still working like a motherf--ker. We've been all around the world [recording]."
Yusef also looked back on Yeezus, saying that Kanye was intentionally trying to challenge his fans and listeners -- and that it was a tough time for Yusef himself.
"Yeezus was a hard album to work on because it was a departure from where I wanted to be with our music," he said. "Kanye was very declarative in his statement of 'I don't want this to be a regular Kanye album. I don't want this to be what people are familiar with.'"
As for this album, he says 'Ye has already recorded 20 songs. Still no word on when we'll get to hear them, though.
