Rick Rubin Hints At Possible Sequel to Kanye West's 'Yeezus'
Rick Rubin holds a high title in the music industry, from being the ex-president of Columbia Records to linking up with Russell Simmons to start Def Jam Records. He recently became the executive producer for Kanye West's "Yeezus" album that just sold between 328,000 copies in the first week alone.
During a recent interview with The Daily Beast, Rick Rubin gives a possible heads up to Kanye fans about there possibly being a "Yeezus" part 2 on the way.
Rick Rubin tells us during his interview:
"Initially, Kanye thought there were going to be 16 songs on the album, but that first day, before he even asked me to work on it, I said, 'Maybe you should make it more concise. Maybe this is two albums. Maybe this is just the first half.' That was one of the first breakthroughs. Kanye was like, 'That’s what I came here today to hear! It could be 10 songs!'"
After Kanye asked Rubin to join the team, he admits he often felt sick while putting "Yeezus" together.
"To me it seemed impossible what he was asking. I remember I wasn’t feeling that well that day, and I was thinking, Is the music making me sick? I don’t feel good about this. We ended up working probably 15 days, 16 days, long hours, no days off, 15 hours a day. I was panicked the whole time."
When asked about the sequel being something legit to look forward to, Rubin simply replied by saying "might be."
Hopefully we get a confirmation soon about a part 2 from Yeezy.
