Kanye West is working on a new album, according to Fya Man

It has been reported that Kanye West is working on a new album. This will be his first since 2022’s unfinished demo record, Donda 2

On Friday, Chicago-based producer Orlando’ Fya Man’ Wilder participated in a Reddit AMA. In the conversation, he discussed his successful career and upcoming projects. Notably, he co-produced various songs on Kanye West’s 2021 album, Donda. The producer won a Grammy Award for his work on West’s song ‘Hurricane’.

During the discussion, Fya Man revealed that Kanye is back in the studio working on his full successor to Donda 2. The producer described the new batch of songs as “Old Ye but new with the times.” He also confirmed that West was working on the album at his well-publicised birthday party in June. 

“Music was worked on heavily, and the party was amazing,” Fya Man added. He also revealed that he worked with Kanye recently and maintained that the Donda musician would not be reworking any tracks from the demo album, Donda 2 for the new record.

In other Kanye West news, Twitter owner Elon Musk recently reactivated the rapper’s account after a lengthy ban. The decision to suspend his account came after his meltdown in late 2022, when West fraternised with right-wing ideologues such as Alex Jones, promoting hateful anti-Semitism, which included saying there were “good things about Hitler also” on InfoWars.

Claiming that he “loves everyone”, West explained: “I am done with the classifications. Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table – especially Hitler.” He had previously argued that “we need to stop dissing the Nazis all the time.”

In a recent appearance on the Piers Morgan Uncensored show, rap legend Ice Cube unveiled that he had recently spoken to Kanye about his well-being. According to the former NWA man, West is “dealing with some people trying to hold on to his money. But for the most part, he’s in a good space.”
