National Sportslink understands that the Ye singer shared a picture of themselves posing in front of a recording desk, saying only that the project would be “coming soon.”
It is not known what exactly the pair are working on but, given their monumental musical impact, it can be assumed that it will be a sequel album to West’s gospel-inspired Jesus Is King, released last month.
Both West and Dre have worked with other huge names in hip-hop including JAY-Z and Nas but have not together so closely before.
Ye has made his admiration clear for Dre in the past. In a 2010 Rolling Stone article, he recalled how overwhelmed he was when he met the Californian rapper/producer.
“I first met Dre in December of 2003. He asked me to produce a track for The Game,” West said. “At first I was star-struck, but within 30 minutes I was begging him to mix my next album.
He’s the definition of a true talent: Dre feels like God placed him here to make music, and no matter what forces are aligned against him, he always ends up on the mountaintop.”
Aside from releasing new music, West has also recently said that he’s going on a Jesus Is King tour “right away.” He also released a corresponding IMAX film that made over $1 million during its first weekend in theaters and wrote an opera titled “Nebuchadnezzar,” which is slated to premiere at The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on Sunday, November 24.
The live performance will feature “music with Sunday Service, Peter Collins & Infinities Song” and be under the artistic direction of Italian contemporary performance artist Vanessa Beecroft.
