When Rick Rubin and Kanye West get together, the end result is musical gold. Although it was originally met with mixed reviews upon its first release, Kanye West’s album Yeezus was another hit, and unlike nothing fans had heard before. And who played a big role in the Yeezus minimalist sound? None other than Rick Rubin of course.

And according to an Instagram post from Chicago rapper Towkio, Kanye West and Rick Rubin are likely working on music again. According to a text screenshot between Towkio and Rubin, Rubin played one of Towkio’s tracks ‘Swim’ for Kanye. Kanye loved the track, as did Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij.

While we do not know the exact details of this get-together, it is exciting enough that this group of talented minds in music are in the same room. It is no stretch however to believe that Kanye and Rubin are working on new music.
