Rick Rubin Hints at Second Installment of Kanye West's 'Yeezus'
Could we soon see the second coming of Kanye West's Yeezus? According to producer Rick Rubin, there's a possibility.
In a career-spanning interview for Newsweek's Daily Beast, the venerable, Def Jam-founding producer said that when West sought his help in completing Yeezus -- roughly five weeks prior to its scheduled release date -- he'd planned on including 16 tracks.
Rubin countered, "Maybe you should make it more concise. Maybe it is two albums. Maybe this is just the first half." According to Rubin, West took to this idea with enthusiasm, leading to the final version of Yeezus containing just 10 songs.
So is another Yeezus coming? "Might be," Rubin says.
