Kanye West held a listening party for Yeezus in New York City on Monday, revealing the star-studded list of collaborators on his sixth studio album and telling the attendees that “he had to learn about giving …this whole process is all about giving.”
We guess Yeezy must have watched a few Christmas movies or got inspired by the impending birth of his first child or something. The listening party for the follow-up to 2010's My Dark Twisted Fantasy was held in the loading dock of Milk Studios in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, with the few hundred attendees including Beyonce, Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip.
Contact Music reports that Chief Keef, King Louie, Hudson Mohawke, Travis Scott and Charlie Wilson are all now confirmed Yeezus contributors, as well as RZA, Daft Punk and Bon Iver‘s Justin Vernon.
West, who turned 36 over the weekend, told the crowd, “I feel like I know who I am,” as well as promising that his latest album would showcase his growth over the last 2 years. Yeezus is scheduled for released on 18th June, as long as K. Widdles can stop making last-minute changes to the record and driving his record label loco.
