Kanye Reportedly Ropes In Rick Rubin At Last Minute As Executive Producer On ‘Yeezus’

Source have revealed to New York Post that Kanye has brought in Rick Rubin as an executive producer on his forthcoming album Yeezus which releases next Tuesday, June 18th. The development took place sometime last week when Kanye invited the Def Jam co-founder to lay additional tracks for the highly anticipated LP.


That’s not all. Def Jam executives and lawyers are also scrambling to get a song called ‘Onsite’ cleared, which samples an old vocal track from kids in a Chicago church choir.

Def Jam executives haggled over rights to West’s racy song “Onsite,” where the rapper samples an old vocal track from kids in a Chicago church choir. We hear lawyers last week had to track down the choir director and members of the Holy Name of Mary Church choir on the South Side of Chicago to get clearance for the vocals.

Def Jam label chiefs were so worried about whether they would get rights to the track, producers re-recorded the vocals with a different choir to be used in case they couldn’t nail down an agreement with the Holy Name crew in time.

We hope there are no delays in release of the album. June 18th folks, get ready!
