“Kanye West album is really done. When it drops this week, we probably not going to listen to anything else for a while. Let me go enjoy all the current artists I’m listening to until then. God bless.”

The excited reporter later added another big opinion on the coming project:

“Kanye played his new album for me & @KDTrey5 last night in Vegas. Man listen! The production is light years ahead of it’s time, and the bars sound like he’s broke & hungry trying to get signed again. Any artist who plan on dropping soon should just push it back. #Respectfully.”

According to older reports, the album will be named Donda, which is a tribute to the greatest rapper’s late mother Donda West. It is scheduled to hit the streets on Friday, 23 July.
