That’s right: Q-Tip and Rick Rubin are set to produce Kanye West’s next album. If you fainted after reading that sentence (and you probably did), we’ll give you a minute to pick yourself up.

During a sit-down with Elliott Wilson ahead of A Tribe Called Quest’s Yeezus tour Brooklyn shows last month, the Queens legend revealed that he and Rubin (who served as a last-minute executive producer on Yeezus) are involved with Ye’s forthcoming seventh solo LP.

While it’s likely the record won’t arrive til next summer, as Kanye recently told Philly’s Power 99, these are certainly details to get excited as hell about.
