Kanye West is already planning the recording process for his follow-up to ‘Yeezus.’ The self-described genius is calling on two hip-hop greats to produce the album.

A Tribe Called Quest leader Q-Tip and Def Jam co-founder Rick Rubin have been tapped to work on West’s seventh studio effort. “I’m producing Kanye’s new album with Rick Rubin… so that’s coming up,” Tip told Elliott Wilson during an interview for Life+Times.

The G.O.O.D. Music head honcho revealed he is set on releasing his next LP in summer 2014.

Q-Tip, who will deliver his joint mixtape with Busta Rhymes, ‘The Abstract and the Dragon,’ on Dec. 12, is also prepping the release of a solo project, ‘The Last Zulu.’

Watch the rapper-turned-DJ open up about Tribe’s last show, his record spinning career and more above.
