Kanye West has been teasing his new album for all of 2015--literally, since he dropped his single "Only One" on New Year's Day. That album (formerly titled So Help Me God, now titled SWISH) has yet to materialize, but West took to Twitter on early Sunday morning (Dec. 13) to tell everyone, hey, it's almost done, and stop pestering him until it is.
I’m finishing my album and my next collection…— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) December 13, 2015
no offense to anyone… I’m asking everyone DON’T ASK ME FOR ANYTHING TILL AFTER I’M FINISHED WITH MY ALBUM— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) December 13, 2015
The tweets above hint at a new fashion collection as well, perhaps to coincide with the next album release. Aside from promoting his friends like Pusha T and Kid Cudi, West hasn't unleashed a candid Twitter thought like that in two months, when he praised The Walk and Robert Zemeckis.
West hasn't released a full-length since 2013's Yeezus. Along with "Only One," Yeezy released the single "All Day" this year, worked with Rihanna and Paul McCartney on "FourFiveSeconds," and teased "Wolves," a collaboration with Sia and Vic Mensa.
Hey, Kanye: have you ever thought of dropping your album on the same day as Rihanna, Drake and Frank Ocean?
