Kanye West is finishing up his long-awaited follow-up to 808s and Heartbreaks, reports Billboard.com.
The album, which has been referred to titled Good Ass Job, will reportedly feature production from artists such as Q-Tip, RZA and Pete Rock. “I just try to work with people who I admire or whom I think has got it,” said Tip in an interview with Brooklyn Bodega. “So right now I’m working on Nas’ shit, about to work with Kanye on his shit.”
According to Roc4Life.com, RZA and Pete Rock were in Hawaii recording with Kanye, though Pete Rock refuted the claim via his Twitter page, and said the trip was “just a vacation.” Pete Rock did, however, allude to a secret project he was working on, which would fall in line with previous West collaborators.
Good Ass Job is set to hit stores in June, according to G.O.O.D. Music artist Big Sean.
