Well, never say never, because Yeezy is now teasing a follow-up to his 2011 blockbuster collaboration album. Tonight, he lit up his Twitter account and sent everyone into a frenzy with his classic shorthand tweet-style, writing:
The news comes as a surprise given that Yeezy and Jay Z haven’t exactly been on great terms. Back in 2016, Yeezy eerily claimed Jay has hitmen, while Jay addressed his own frustrations while promoting last year’s 4:44, even airing his grievances on the album.
Since then, things have kind of, maybe, sort of smoothed over. By the end of 2017, Jay contended that “I love Kanye. I do. It’s a complicated relationship with us,” and earlier this summer, Kanye admitted they’ve been texting, which is nice.
What’s more, Jay is credited as a composer and lyricist for “The Games We Play” and “Infrared” off of Pusha-T’s recent Kanye-produced Daytona, so who the hell knows. At the very least, it’s highly unlikely they’re on a Cardi-Nicki level right now. So, we’ll see.
In the meantime, Kanye is currently working on Chance the Rapper’s new album.
