Why People Suspect Kanye West Is Dropping A New Album Soon 

Kanye West has maintained a notable absence from the spotlight since the release of 2022’s “Donda 2,” which was exclusively launched on the Stem Player platform at the time. Nevertheless, fervent fans have begun to speculate that the artist, whose career has been marred by controversies, might be on the brink of a return to the music scene after a prolonged hiatus.

According to sources cited by NBC News, the disgraced rapper has been spending considerable time locked away in the recording studio, engrossed in creative endeavors. Among these sources, an insider purportedly close to West intimated that “new music is imminent” from the multi-faceted musician.

The excitement was later amplified days later by Gregor Estevan who posted a photo with frequent Kanye West collaborator Ty Dolla $ign on Social media, claiming he had caught a snippet of the highly anticipated sounds emanating from West’s hotel room. Estevan captioned his Instagram Story, “At Ye’s hotel and music is blasting from his room while they’re recording their new album. It sounds insane!!”

It’s crucial to note that Kanye West’s creative output has been relatively subdued since the release of “Donda 2” in February 2022. The influential artist has taken an unusually low-profile stance in the United States due to a series of controversial remarks and incidents, including an anti-Jewish campaign that led to his banishment from prominent social media platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, and even Clubhouse. 


His problematic comments have not merely impacted his professional trajectory, but have also strained his personal relationships. In a recent interview with Los Angeles Times, former president of West’s now defunct G.O.O.D. Music label, Pusha T said he has been disappointed by West’s recent remarks on the Jewish community.

“As a Black man in America, there is no room for bigotry or hate speech. So yeah. It’s been very disappointing, let’s talk straight,” Pusha T lamented.

The question arises as to whether Kanye West’s forthcoming music will be released on popular streaming platforms. In late December, the New York Post reported that the President of the World Jewish Congress, Ronald Lauder, was advocating for the removal of the rapper’s music from platforms like Apple Music and Spotify. A letter, obtained by the NYP and addressed to Apple CEO Tim Cook and Spotify CEO Daniel Ek on December 7th, emphasized West’s purported endorsement of Nazism and his anti-Semitic tirades.

“Kanye West’s antisemitic tirades go beyond trafficking in conspiracy theories. He is espousing Nazism in its purest, most hateful form, and is perhaps the singular embodiment of the alarming rise of Jew hatred in America,” the letter reads. “As long as his hateful voice is carried on Apple and Spotify’s music streaming platforms, they are in league with those who wish harm to Jews the world over.”

The uncertainty surrounding Kanye West’s return to the music scene is underscored by the broader social and ethical conversations his actions and music evoke, making his potential album release an event of both artistic and cultural significance.

Do you think it’s time for Ye to make a comeback?
