By now, you've probably ingested and dissected every second of Yeezus, right? Despite Rick Rubin's recent admission that Kanye recorded most of the album in three weeks, surely he hasn't banked any more tracks for a possible Yeezus sequel, right? Maybe.

In a new interview with Newsweek, Rubin alluded to the potential follow-up. "Initially, he thought there were going to be 16 songs on the album," Rubin said. "But that first day, before he even asked me to work on it, I said, 'Maybe you should make it more concise. Maybe this is two albums. Maybe this is just the first half," to which Kanye excitedly said, "That's what I came here today to hear! It could be 10 songs!"

Asked point-blank if there was "another Yeezus in the pipeline," Rubin replied, "Might be." That's enough to give Kanyeezy fans hope.
