There is never a boring moment in a Kanye West interview, even one that's a mere handful of minutes. Such was the case when 'Ye phoned in to Hot 97 and chopped it up with Ebro and Nessa. In between dropping revelations that he insists he's “completely boring, actually" ("All I do is go to the studio every day”) and dispelling rumors that he got kicked out of a Chuck E. Cheese—or would ever step foot inside a Chuck E. Cheese (“I’m trying to stay off the carbs. I don’t even eat pizza, what am I gonna do at Chuck E. Cheese?")—Kanye dropped some nuggets about his next album SWISH. “[I’m working] on it slowly, to make it an art project [and] deliver the innovation that I know I can and that I’ve consistently done since 808s [& Heartbreak] and [My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy],” he said.
Unfortunately, it might not come as soon as planned, as 'Ye plans on retreating from the spotlight for awhile to spend more time with his family as he and his wife Kim Kardashian prepare for their second child and North West's second birthday party. “I really wanna go away, like I been doing a lot of features, right now I just want to take some time to focus on my album, my next collection and North’s birthday," he said. "Just focus on my family and then be able to recharge and reenergize and bring something of value.”
