Old & new faces are involved in the production side
Kanye's last two albums wildly altered the way we think about production these days, with a collaborative approach being favored over the more solo-driven efforts on his earlier albums. For MBDTF, that meant assembling a legendary camp of producers (RZA, Q-Tip, DJ Premier, Madlib, Pete Rock) for input; on Yeezus, he went more left-field but kept the more-the-merrier approach, with Daft Punk appearing in the credits alongside electronic experimentalists like Hudson Mohawke, Gesaffelstein, Brodinski, Evian Christ, Arca and Lunice.
This time around, we've caught wind of more collaborations with Q-Tip and Rick Rubin (the latter of whom lent his famous "reduction" techniques to Yeezus just days before it dropped). S1, another familiar face in Kanye's universe, said he was asked to send "feel-good" tracks to West. As far as West's more adventurous side goes, he tapped pop-leaning experimentalists Cashmere Cat and Sinjin Hawke for "Wolves," and Yeezus collaborator Evian Christ also said he contributed new material.
