Kanye West continues to make headlines as he dives headfirst into his new life as a gospel artist. This time around, the news involves another legendary hip-hop producer: Dr. Dre. As both Kanye and Dre shared in respective tweets on Monday, the pair will collaborate on the forthcoming follow-up to West’s newly released gospel/hip-hop record, Jesus Is King, reportedly titled Jesus Is King Part II.

Kanye West and Dr. Dre have never previously collaborated on this scale, though they have worked with several of the same artists including Jay-ZThe GameNas, and more. As Complex notes, “Kanye in particular has shown admiration for his legendary counterpart in the past. ‘Ye famously admitted he ‘bit the drums off ‘Xxplosive” with a sped-up sample to create a Jay-Z song on the outro to The College Dropout‘s ‘Last Call‘ (“I was listening to Dre Chronic 2001 at that time. And really I just, like bit the drums off ‘Xxplosive‘ and put it like with a sped-up sample, and now it’s kind of like my whole style, when it started, when he rapped on “This Can’t Be Life”).

Kanye West has been particularly prolific in his output since publicly swearing off secular music in favor of religious material earlier this year. In late October, Kanye released his latest studio effort, Jesus Is King, and he has plans to release yet another God-centric project, Jesus Is Born, set for release on Christmas day.

Even before the release of Jesus Is King and his official pivot toward gospel music, West had spent much of 2019 cultivating his Sunday Service project. After hosting the series exclusive Sunday afternoon events with a full band and gospel choir throughout the first half of the year, Yeezy brought the entire crew to Coachella for the first public Sunday Service on Easter Sunday in April.

Since then, he’s mounted a series of impromptu events across the country, rolled out a Jesus Is King IMAX film, attended a service at Joel Osteen‘s church, performed for prison inmates in Texas, announced plans for a new opera, Nebuchadnezzar, and more.

However you may feel about Kanye West and his recent artistic/spiritual direction, this new chapter is undoubtedly intriguing and wholly different from anything else we’re seeing in popular music today.
