Despite some major leaks and several varied track lists hitting the ‘net, Kanye West is sticking by the Nov. 22 release date for his fifth studio album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
With contributing producers Pete Rock and RZA adding their signature New York sound to the record, fans were also teased with talks of DJ Premier making the final cut. But Preemo says fans may have to wait a bit longer for the much-anticipated collaboration.
“I asked him about it at the BET Hip-Hop awards, and he said didn’t get a chance to do it,” DJ Premier told VIBE yesterday from Headquartez studio in midtown Manhattan. “But he said ‘I’m doing the album with Jay-Z, and I need two tracks for that.’ And he even kept hitting me to get more tracks for the album he’s about to drop. But right now, my priority is getting my artists up and running.”
