Producer Rick Rubin has said that there might be a sequel to Kayne West’s ‘Yeezus’ album in the pipeline. That is literally what he said. Well, the Daily Beast asked, “So there might be another Yeezus in the pipeline?” and Rick Rubin replied: “Might be”.

Before that, to prompt TDB’s question, Rubin explained: “Initially, [Kanye] thought there were going to be sixteen songs on the album. But that first day, before he even asked me to work on it, I said, ‘Maybe you should make it more concise. Maybe this is two albums. Maybe this is just the first half’. That was one of the first breakthroughs. Kanye was like, ‘That’s what I came here today to hear! It could be ten songs!'”

So, there you go. There might be more ‘Yeezus’ in the offing. I hope he rhymes ‘spouse’ with ‘house’ a few more times. That’s something no one could ever tire of.
