Kanye didn’t show up at the Grammys as he was busy attending the Rio Carnival in Brazil with boo Kim Kardashian and learning Samba drums. However, Jay-Z received the Grammy for their joint track ‘No Church In The Wild’ along with The-Dream and Frank Ocean in his absence. The-Dream has already revealed that he’ll be going to Paris with Kanye to record new music and in a new interview with Hitfix that took place backstage at the Grammys, he confirms the same, without revealing much.

Ye’s close friend and long time collaborator Malik Yusef did open a bit about the upcoming anticipated LP from Kanye and here’s what he had to say:

“He is a perfectionist, obviously. It’s harsh,” he said, noting that whether they’re in Paris or Hawaii, it’s a labor. “[West] says no to a hundred things.

As to the specifics of sound and scope, Yusef said “I can’t talk too much about it. Just remember black music, the black experience. It’s a throwback to that era,” he said, but “a distillation of what’s happening in the modern world.” What it won’t have is a lot of West singing, or at least not as much singing as he did on 2008’s “808s & Heartbreak.”

I don’t know if we’d ever revisit that amount of singing,” Yusef said.
