Kanye West: I'm Releasing 'Three Albums a Year'

It's been exactly a month since Kanye West took over Madison Square Garden to premiere looks from Yeezy Season 3, his latest collaboration with Adidas, and songs from The Life of Pablo, his forthcoming album that's definitely not going to be available in CD form when it's eventually released. Even though TLOP has yet to see an official drop beyond its stream on Tidal, Kanye's made a grand declaration: He's got ambitious plans as far as his future projects are concerned—even for him—and they'll take shape in several releases a year.

In a tweet this morning, Kanye said that he's "going Mad Max"—i.e. living by his own rules in a post-apocalyptic hellscape, or something—and throwing the fashion calendar out the window. He also said he'll be upping his artistic output to six collections and three albums a year. (No word yet as to whether or not North and Saint will be creative consultants on these endeavors as well.)

Kanye previously said that he's already at work on the follow-up to TLOP: Its working title is Turbo Grafx 16, he's surprised an unsuspecting club crowd in L.A. with new tracks presumably from it, and photos of Kanye in the studio with various collaborators have made the rounds on the internet.

As we wait for TLOP, Turbo Grafx 16, and the rest of Kanye's Mad Maxian creations, keep your eyes peeled for the release of TLOP and read up on everything we know about the album.
