West to delay album release

Kanye West will bring out his sixth solo album "right after" G.O.O.D. Music's 'Cruel Summer' is released.

The 'Stronger' hitmaker is likely to release the record before the end of the year, with the target being for it to quickly follow his collective's compilation LP into stores.

Def Jam Vice President and producer No I.D. said: "He's coming right after that.

"I'm not working on that 'Cruel Summer' album, I'm working on his album."

Though No I.D. isn't working on 'Cruel Summer' - which features artists including Big Sean, Pusha T, CyHi the Prynce, Common, Kid Cudi, Teyana Taylor, Mr. Hudson and Q-Tip - he promises fans will enjoy the record.

He added to MTV News: "This is Kanye. You know what to expect from the family. He hasn't missed yet, so don't expect him to miss."

CyHi the Prynce recently proclaimed the forthcoming compilation to be "amazing" because it has "the best" team behind it.

He said: "G.O.O.D. Music is the best team out there.

"Lyrically, bar-for-bar, song-for-song, concept-for-concept, we are the world, we can take it to a cipher, we can take it on the record, it don't matter 'cause we the best.

"It's an amazing project; this isn't something we just threw together. It ain't nothing where a whole bunch of beats were emailed over and different things of that nature.

"These are ideas that we actually creatively came up with and we're exercising them right now."
