Kanye West Producing New Album From The Gap Band's Charlie Wilson

(Radio.com) When Kanye West dazzled the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon audience with a heartfelt performance of Yeezus highlight "Bound 2″ earlier this month (September 10), the rapper was very nearly upstaged by the booming voice and commanding stage presence of the song's special guest, Charlie Wilson.

Wilson, who has worked with West on past albums like My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and the Jay Z collab Watch the Throne, has just announced that Yeezus himself will be manning the boards on his next solo album, which is expected to be completed in the spring of next year.

"Kanye and myself, we started already Kanye is starting on a new record for me," said to MTV News regarding the collaboration. "Kanye is one of the greatest rapper/producers that we have. He's a little controversial, yeah, but he's still a genius at that in the studio. He wants to produce me, so we'll see how that goes. He's been asking for a while and I've just been busy. Real busy. I know Pharrell [Williams] wants to get in. And Justin Timberlake.

"I like Kanye in the studio. He's very, very understandable about the music," Wilson continued. "When he wants to write something, put his finger on the pulse, he really do know how to do that. Now, when he don't want to do that don't want to have radio records he don't do that either. Me, I'll always love to have radio records." more on this story
