West took to Twitter (where else?) in the early hours of Saturday to let us know that his new album is currently titled Turbo Grafx 16. The name is a reference to the first video-game console to ever feature a CD-ROM peripheral, released in the U.S. in 1990 and in Europe under the name PC Engine.

It was, apparently, Ye’s favourite console. Within five minutes of the announcement, West then told us his friend Mali had a Neo Geo “in real life bro.” So maybe that will be the next title…

The rapper isn’t done with us this year.

Since the release of The Life Of Pablo, the flow of new music from Kanye West hasn’t stopped.

After a track featuring Sampha surfaced earlier today (February 24), West promise during a string of tweets that he will release another album this summer.

He also criticised the Grammy Awards for being “out of touch” and for the way in which the ceremony represents race.

Kanye also addressed Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, asking him to take down the fake Kanye accounts for “trying to make Kanye-isms that are not Mark Twain level.”
