Kanye West has completed his new album, and Yeezy’s upcoming project has been described as “light years ahead of its time”.
The rapper has been quiet since Jesus Is King in 2019, a record that saw West get in touch with his faith and delve into the world of gospel music. Last July, he was due to release Donda. However, it failed to materialise, and it recently emerged that West has been working on a new project while located in Hawaii.
Then in June, West’s manager Bu Thiam hinted that his new album is named, WestDayEver. Gap posted an image of their debut clothing collaboration with the rapper, and Bu commented, “WestDayEver. Album OTW!”
Now, social media personality Justin LaBoy has revealed that he and NBA star Kevin Durant have heard the new album. LaBoy even accompanied the post with an image of the three of them together after the apparent listening party.
The RevoltTV presenter wrote: “Kanye played his new album for me & @KDTrey5 last night in Vegas. Man listen! The production is light years ahead of its time, and the bars sound like he’s broke & hungry trying to get signed again. Any artist who plan on dropping soon should just push it back Respectfully”.
He then added in no uncertain terms: “ALBUM OF THE YEAR. DONT @ ME”.
LaBoy’s comments will excite any Kanye fans who have been left disappointed by his recent output and are crying out for him to return to his old ways.
A release date remains unknown for the project, although the post from LaBoy does say “album of the year”. Here’s hoping that the ever-unpredictable Kanye unleashes it into the world sooner rather than later.
