Neither Chance or Kanye have revealed how far long they are in the album creation process, but 'Ye did share a video of him chopping up a Michael Jackson sample while Chance looked on. "We had to chop this up for Michael's birthday," Yeezy tweeted on Thursday (Aug. 30).

Producer Zaytoven also shared a photo from what appears to be the same studio session. "YETOVEN THE RAPPER," the producer captioned the photo of the three standing together.

In related news, four months after getting rid of his manager and saying he can't be managed, Kanye West is reportedly back working with his former manager John Monopoly. Monopoly was previously Yeezy's first manager when the rapper and producer got started in music.
