Today, more news has arrived concerning Skepta and Kanye. It was probably inevitable, but according to a fan at Kanye's adidas sneaker launch in London, the rapper revealed he's been hitting the studio with Skepta.

While talking to Capital XTRA, fan Jonny Park revealed that in addition to getting to meet Kanye at the launch (and receiving a free pair of Yeezy 750 Boosts), Ye shared some info on his album. "I heard that I won the raffle last night and was told to turn up at the Adidas Store this morning at 9am. Me and a few others were sitting there when Kanye came out carrying boxes of Yeezy Boosts...He gave everyone a pair and had a chat with us!"

"He said he was in the studio with Skepta at the moment and he also said the first single from the album is going to be 'All Day' and it's going to feature Theophilus London and Allan Kingdom. And it's going to have a piece from Paul McCartney on the end," Park said.
