Theophilus London is bringing in some star power for his upcoming album. During an interview with R&R Productions, the Brooklyn, New York rapper said that he’s working on his new LP, slated for release in summer 2013, and that he’s got collaborations with Kanye West, Drake, Travi$ Scott and more.
“I’m recording right now. I started recording in November,” he said. “I’m recording with kids in Paris, Bradinsky. I was at Kanye’s place yesterday with Travi$ Scott, we recorded some shit. Dev Hynes from London is going to be on that shit. My nigga Drake, that’s my nigga.”
Describing the album as “emotional club music,” London said that he didn’t work very closely with West but that he admires his talents. “Kanye’s a genius. We haven’t really got too in-depth work. Just being around him, seeing how he feels about music, fashion, all that stuff is very inspiring. All the G.O.O.D. Music kids, they’re friends of mine. Virgil [Abloh], Travis, Kanye.”
