*It’s been just about six months since Kanye West’s latest album “Yeezus” has been in the streets, and already he’s preparing for next studio release, reports Billboard.

During an interview with Elliott Wilson for Life + Times, Q-Tip, who is working on a solo album of his own, “The Last Zulu,” shared that he and Rick Rubin will be behind the boards for Ye’s follow-up: “I’m producing Kanye’s new album with Rick Rubin, I’m doing that, so that’s coming up.”

Ye’ told Philly’s Power 99 that he’s currently recording and hopes to release the album in the summer of 2014.

“I haven’t named my next album but I have started on it,” he said. “I write down philosophies all the time. I have some thoughts and I just constantly… everytime I think of it I write it. I’m working on it.”

“I’d like to have another album out by next summer,” he continued.

West also confirmed that he has a remix with Miley Cyrus coming up. Rumors of her involvement in a remix for his “Black Skinhead” track started in August, shortly after Cyrus’ 2013 MTV VMA performance.
