When not making controversial political statements, Kanye West continues to create new music. On Twitter, he shared the tracklist of his upcoming album.
The self-proclaimed genius announced his follow-up to 2016's The Life of Pablo through social media earlier this year. With only a few more weeks until his eighth studio album comes out, West has released new details about his new music.
Back In The Studio
In a video, the 40-year-old can be seen sitting in front of a piano playing an undetermined beat. An open laptop two whiteboards are also visible within the shot.
Through the tweet, he shared the tracklist of his still-untitled new album, his collaborative work with Kid Cudi, and music he is producing for Nas, Pusha T, and Teyana Taylor.
For his new album, the father of three revealed the title of two new tracks: "Ecstasy" and "Wouldn't Leave." Two of his previous releases, "Lift Yourself" and "Ye vs. the People" are missing on the board, so it is safe to assume that neither made it to the seven-track record.
The rapper/designer's upcoming work with Kid Cudi, titled Kids See Ghost, will also feature seven new tracks. Some of the titles written on the boards are "Feel The Love," "4th Dimension," "Ghost Town," and the title "Kids See Ghost."
On the other board, Pusha T, Nas, and Teyana Taylor's new tracks were listed down.

After parting with a good number of his crew, West announced that he would be producing these new albums, including his own. All albums will be released in the weeks to come, with Pusha T's arriving as early as May 25.
The rapper is working on his new projects in a location in Jacksonville, Wyoming. In a tweet, he announced that he got rid of his phone to focus all his energy and attention on his work.
This decision comes days after he proclaimed that slavery is a choice in a conversation with TMZ's Harvey Levin. The hip-hop mogul has been under fire since then, earning criticism from fellow celebrities.

Kanye West Under Investigation
In addition, the Yeezy designer has also been subjected to an investigation after an employee was badly injured while at work. According to reports, an unidentified man had to be amputated after a massive 3D printer fell on his foot.
The responding authorities revealed that the employee had to be airlifted from the office and transported into an emergency healthcare facility.
Investigators are trying to determine if there are workplace violations and if these led to the accident. If proven guilty, West and his partner, Adidas, could face up to $129,000 in fines.
