We can’t help but wonder what Kanye has been doing, especially since we are celebrating the rapper’s 40th birthday! Fans have been coming up with conspiracies about what’s next for Kanye, and now there has been a confirmation that Kanye is in fact working on his next album from his label. 

A couple months ago, Ye was spotted in the mountains of Wyoming and then rumors started flying that the rapper was working on an album up there. Earlier this year there was something that looked like it could be a tracklist for what fans have been calling “Turbo Grafx 16.” 

Now, the CEO of Def Jam, Steve Bartels, spoke on Kanye in Variety,“When we talk we don’t really get down to the granular of where he’s going and how he’s flying there, we keep it much more on a broader level. Kanye is working, that’s been widely reported. He’s always very focused, and our relationship with him is that we always have great respect for him and when he’s ready to do something or talk about something, we’re there for him, we totally support his vision and his focus, and that’s where we leave it. I check in with him from time to time just to see how he’s doing.” 

Bartels also mentioned in the interview that when Kanye says it is “go time,” then it’s “go time!”
