Behind Kanye’s New Album With Complex

Complex got some amazing behind the scenes access while Kanye was creating his latest album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. The cover story is available online and it’s a super interesting read. Written by Complex’s editor in chief, Noah Callahan-Bever, the beginning of the article he talks about arriving to ‘rap camp’, “On a late March afternoon, I arrive at Avex Honolulu Studios, the seaside recording studio on Oahu where West tracked 808s and is now block-booking all three session rooms, 24 hours a day, until he decides he’s done. He had deliberately concealed the names of the players he’d enlisted, but I can’t say I’m totally shocked to find him posted up in the studio’s A room with Kid Cudi and the Clipse’s Pusha T.” If you are enjoying the new album from Yeezy, this is definitely with a read.
