Kanye West is only a few days from dropping his acclaimed “Yeezus”. Unlike J. Cole’s “Born Sinner”, the album hasn’t been leaked yet, but rumors are spirally about a possible tracklist for the album. An unconfirmed track list has surfaced and includes features from Frank Ocean, Chief Keef, and King L.
Yeezus is executive produced by hip-hop legend and Def Jam co-founder, Rick Rubin. The album was previewed earlier this week at a New York listening party and according to reports the 10-song track list has been revealed. Reports state that the album opens up the “On Sight” that is followed by “Black Skinhead” and “I am God”, with a feature from God. My guess is Morgan Freeman.
“New Slaves”, which has been previewed on projections across the world, is said to feature Frank Ocean, while “Hold My Liquor” is aided by fellow Chicago rapper, Chief Keef. There were reports that the two would collaborate after Ye remixed the newcomer’s “Don’t Like”. “Hold My Liquor” also includes singing from Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon.
Next up is “I’m In It,” which sample’s Kenny Latimore’s “Lately”, according to reports. “Blood On The Leaves has a sample of Nina Simone singing Billie Holiday’s “Strange Fruit” and “Guilt Trip”. Kid Cudi joins in on “Chief Rocka”. West once stated that Cudi was his favorite artist, but the Cleveland emcee has recently left Ye’s G.O.O.D Music label.
Chicago drill sergeant King L lends his voice to “Send it Up”, which has a sample of Beenie Man’s “Memories”. The album wraps up with “Bound 2” that features R&B legend Charlie Wilson.
The tracklist is yet to be confirmed.
