21-time Grammy winner Kanye West announced to his 29.4M Twitter following on Monday that he and Dr. Dre’s sequel to his hit gospel album, Jesus is King Part II, is ‘coming soon.’
Surprisingly, it’ll be the first collaboration between the 42-year-old rapper-designer and the 54-year-old hip-hop mogul (born Andre Young).
‘He’s the definition of a true talent: Dre feels like God placed him here to make music, and no matter what forces are aligned against him, he always ends up on the mountaintop,’ Kanye wrote in Rolling Stone back in 2010.
‘I remember hearing Dre’s music before I really knew who he was. I had a tape of Eazy-E’s Eazy-Duz-It when I was ten years old (until my mother found out it had curses on it and confiscated it). I didn’t know what “production” was back then, but I knew I loved the music. The more I learned about producing hip-hop, the more I respected what Dre was doing.’
West also admitted that he ‘bit’ his ‘entire sound’ from the six-time Grammy winner’s 1999 song, Xxplosive, off his second studio album 2001.
Tickets went on sale Monday morning for the Calabasas father-of-four’s opera Nebuchadnezzar taking place one night only this Sunday at the Hollywood Bowl.
Nebuchadnezzar was the king of Babylon specifically mentioned in the Bible’s Book of Daniel.
