Y’all Heard About the Good News? Kanye West Says He Will Release Three Albums in 2016
Kanye West is seemingly dead-set on making 2016 the year of Yeezy (or at least solidifying “Kanye West Chooses New Album Title” as an evergreen headline for music journalists everywhere).
In his latest Twitter spree — which was actually just a modest, single tweet — West wrote he intends to release “three albums a year”:
No more fashion calendar… I'm going Mad Max… 6 collections a year…3 albums a year

The Life of Pablo is the first of that trifecta, but despite its release via Tidal in February, West says it’s still not complete. The rapper previously tweeted he’s going to “fix” his Frank Ocean collaboration “Wolves,” and earlier this week, he said he will soon “finish the final mixes.” The second LP is Turbo Grafx 16, which is due out sometime this summer. West pulled the album title from the ‘80s video game console of the same name. “Just on some super nerd vibes,” he wrote, “one of my favorite gaming systems when I was kid.”
Whenever that yet-to-be-titled third album of 2016 arrives, it definitely won’t be released on CD.
