Kanye West wants to make 52 records in 52 weeks

Oh Kanye… a man who knows how to keep the people on their toes; back at it again with another headline.
After releasing a slew of music in the past month from his own album ye, to his collaborative Kids See Ghosts album with Kid Cudi, along with three additional albums which he produced for Pusha-T, Nas, and Teyana Taylor, it seems as if the G.O.O.D. Music patriarch can’t be stopped. On top of it all, a Chance The Rapper album is now confirmed to be underway too. Upping the ante however, in an interview with Jon Caramanica from The New York Times, West boldly claims that he wants to find a place in Wyoming that will have less distractions and then create 52 records in as many weeks — essentially claiming a whole calendar year of Kanye West.
Whether that means completely done songs, just beats, or a delicate mixture of the two remains unclear. Whether that’s even operationally realistic is another question. However, with the knack for project construction that Kanye West has demonstrated since releasing his first album in 2004, if anyone could pull it off, it would be him. Rather than 52 records in 52 weeks though, others might be more drawn in by the idea of one Kanye West record that took 52 weeks to produce, but that’s an entirely different discussion altogether.
