The world is still reeling from the messy and complex new Kanye West album, The Life of Pablo, but Mr. West waits for no one to get on his level. In an Instagram post, Ibn Jasper, personal barber to Yeezus, gave his followers a glimpse of “day 1” in the production of Turbo Grafx 16, Kanye’s new album. Longtime Kanye collaborators Kid Cudi and Mike Dean appear in the photo. 

On Twitter, Kanye explained the significance of the album’s title, saying he’s “just on some super nerd vibes… [Turbo Grafx 16 was] one of my favorite gaming systems when I was a kid.” The album is due out this summer.
