Get ready for another Kanye album. Less than two weeks after unleashing his latest project, The Life of Pablo, and hours after premiering his new song “Closest Thing to Einstein,” Kanye West has announced via Twitter that he’s planning to release a second album this year.
New album coming this summer

The announcement was part of a much longer Twitter spree, of course. Fresh off his Bob Ezrin tirade, Kanye slammed another target: the Grammys. In his tweets, Ye said he wants to meet with Neil Portnow, the president of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, to “make the Grammys culturally relevant again.”
What are the changes he’d like to see the Grammys make? “First order of business,” he tweeted. “We the people need to see Future at the Grammys. We need to see Young Thug at the Grammys. Not just me and Jay in a suit.”
So not only is Kanye dropping another album real soon, ranting uncontrollably about everything, everywhere, he also revealed the title of his upcoming album. Too bad he might change his mind at any chance and scrap this title but thus far, the album will be known as “Turbo Grafx 16.”
My next album is titled “Turbo Grafx 16” as of now…
