Kanye West has reportedly called upon the talents of Rick Rubin to make a number of changes to his up-coming album, Yeezus, just two weeks out from its official release date.
West has caused a number of headaches for executives at his own Def Jam record label when he called in the producer to help write additional songs for the album as well as tweaking a number of the tracks that had already been recorded.
The last minute changes haven’t been the only aspect of the album that is running down to the wire with permission to secure rights to use a vocal track from a Chicago church choir Kanye has included on his own song Onsite still in doubt.
Lawyers associated with Def Jam have had to track down the choir director of Holy Name of Mary Church to negotiate clearance to use the music. A new version of the vocals has been recorded by Kanye in case the rights cannot be secured.
Earlier today Music Feeds posted a series of videos of Kanye West performing at Governors Ball Festival 2013 where he debuted a number of new tracks from Yeezus as well as subjecting the crowd to another of his rants.
Yeezus is scheduled for release on 18th June.
