Kanye West is in the midst of a project that is “bigger than music”, according to French Montana.
In a recent interview with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe, the Moroccan-American artist said that Ye is “working on something that’s so crazy” – something “bigger than music”. He also hinted that West’s music is heading in a more spiritual direction.
“When I went to go see him, he showed me something that was so crazy. But, that’s what make people like him stand out, because he always think outside the box—really outside the box. Shout out to Kanye,” Montana told Lowe.
He continued: “I just see that [Kanye is] trying to do something that’s going to change the world. Whether it’s something to help the people, or something like … I feel like he’s going to touch something that’s going to change everybody’s life.”
“The whole time I’m with him, he’s telling me about the church and he’s telling me about what his direction with the music is going,” Montana added. “The whole time he’s like, ‘I’m thinking about doing this. All right? You know. I’m in that spirit. You know?’ So I play him a couple records. I played a record called ‘Wiggle It.’ When the record stopped, he said, ‘What you doing with that record'” I said, ‘My God. I thought you was going towards Jesus.’ This is across the street right here.”
West’s forthcoming record, ‘Yandhi’ has been postponed indefinitely.
