Kanye West teases new music with Drake and Future will ‘drop soon’

After working with the pair on his new album, rapper tweets that their "new shit" is on its way

Kanye West is back at it on Twitter, this time to tease new music with Drake and Future.

In a week that has seen the rapper ask Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg to invest $1bn in his ideas, to asking ‘white publications’ not to comment on ‘black music’, West has returned to the social-networking site to thank Drake for his work on his new album ‘The Life of Pablo’.

Speaking of the Canadian star, West tweeted: “I wanna thank my brother Drizzy for helping me on 30 Hours & Father Stretch My Hands.”

He then went on to reveal: “Drake would come by and just help, no strings. Future also came by to write. We all got new shit together that’s gonna drop soon.”

Little else is known about what new material West, Drake and Future have been working on, but there’s no doubt he’ll give us an update via Twitter soon.

Meanwhile, West has found himself in the headlines again after apparently calling Taylor Swift a “fake ass” backstage at Saturday Night Live.

West and Swift famously fell out after the rapper interrupted the star’s acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV VMAs. They later reconciled, with Swift handing West the lifetime achievement prize at last year’s VMAs.

However, West caused controversy with lyrics about Swift in his song ‘Famous’. The track, which features on the rapper’s new album ‘The Life Of Pablo’, includes the lyrics: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / I made that bitch famous.”

Page Six later shared an audio clip purported to have been recorded backstage ahead of West’s Saturday Night Live performance last week where he continued to bad-mouth Swift.

A representative for West has since responded to the recording, telling Rolling Stone that West’s comments were meant to be “private”.
