According to New York Times' Jon Caramanica, Kanye told him he was thinking about doing "52 records in 52 weeks."
Last week, Kanye West ended his run of five albums in five weeks after Teyana Taylor’s Keep The Same Energy was released on Saturday. Before that, Ye produced albums for Pusha T, Nas, himself and Kid Cudi, but it appears there still might be more more where that comes from.
New York Times writer Jon Caramanica recently spent three days with Kanye for an in-depth featured interview, and he followed it up with a Q&A on NYT's Popcast on Wednesday. During the podcast, Caramanica mentioned that Kanye told him he had thoughts of doing a record every week for an entire year.
"He said he wants to get a place in Wyoming and he thinks he wants to spend more time there. He told me at one point he wants to make 52 records in 52 weeks. Take that for what you will,” Jon said in the podcast.
Now the chances of this actually happening is pretty unlikely, but Jon’s quote does reveal that Kanye has been inspired to be in Wyoming and that more music could be on the way. Hell, rumors have been circulating online this past week that Kanye was working with Chance The Rapper on an another 7-song project, as well as Cyhi The Prynce. So we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
