Artist: Kanye West
Label: Getting Out Our Dreams, Inc.
Last week, Pusha T batted first in the series of Yeezy-produced, seven-track projects with his Daytona album. Now, Kanye West himself returns to the music world to continue the cruel summer.
Out today is Yeezy’s eighth studio album, Ye, which serves as the follow-up to his 2016 The Life of Pablo project. With contributions from the likes of Kid Cudi, Nicki Minaj, Jeremih, Charlie Wilson, Ty Dolla $ign and 070 Shake, take a listen to the seven-track effort in full below.
