Evian Christ Says Kanye West Wants Next Album To Have An Otis Redding & Mobb Deep Sound

(AllHipHop News) More info about Kanye West’s forthcoming album continues to leak out.

Previously, Ye’s tour DJ Mano said the album will not be an extension of the music heard on Yeezus, and now a collaborator from the last Kanye LP provides more details about the musical direction of the next one.

Speaking with Self Titled, producer Evian Christ shares that Kanye asked him to provide a specific sound for the Yeezus follow-up.

“[Kanye] e-mailed last night. He wants something that sounds a bit like Otis Redding, a bit like Mobb Deep,” said Christ.

The Very G.O.O.D. Beats affiliate goes on to praise Kanye for his willingness to attempt musical moves that other artists will not try.

“Kanye is the one dude who’s like, ‘This is not experimental enough. This is too poppy. Make something else.’ The other guys are like, ‘We don’t get it,'” added Christ. “Kanye is a dream to work with. No one else gives you that level of creative freedom. When he wants you to work to a blueprint, the blueprint is: ‘Don’t make a rap beat. Anything but a rap beat.’”

Christ contributed to the Yeezus track “I’m In It.”
