We are a week away from the release of Kanye West’s highly anticipated album, WAVES or SWISH or So Help Me God — whatever the name is today. Swizz Beatz sat down with Billboard to discuss his love for art and of course Kanye’s new album. As one of the contributors, it’s safe to say Swizz has the inside scoop on what Kanye has coming with this project.
What kind of art can we expect when on Kanye West’s Waves?
Oh that’s the name of it now? [Laughs]
I’d like to think you know more than me.
I had the pleasure of working on a few tracks for the album. It’s one of the best albums I heard him produce in a while. It’s a sound that I think is very enjoyable. The sonics and the things that people are gonna hear — I think they should connect to it, like close their eyes [away] from all of the B.S. and think about the music when you listen to the album ‘cause it’s a lotta noise outta there. When you’re that popular, there’s gonna be a lot of noise but sometimes, we gotta put the headphones out, get away from that noise and really listen to the craft and I think that he has a great piece of work on his hands
With all the anticipation and hype being build around this album, it has to be one of Kanye’s best. It’s set to be release on Feb 11.
