Kanye West and Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj’s stock keeps rising. After appearing on records for Mariah Carey, Usher, Robin Thicke, Sean Kingston, and Christina Aguilera, Kanye West has called on hip-hop’s heroine for his new album.

BET’s Executive Vice President of Entertainment and Music Programming Stephen Hill was one of the lucky few invited to hear Mr. West’s eagerly-anticipated new project. “He’s got a track with Nicki Minaj that’s so dope,” he exclusively revealed to staging-rapup.kinsta.cloud. “You won’t believe it when you hear it.”

The executive has heard four cuts from the album, tentatively titled Good Ass Job. “He comes back unapologetic and his performance [at the BET Awards] was stellar, absolutely stellar,” he said.

Hill described the direction as more reminiscent of the rapper’s first three albums. “It’s less like 808s & Heartbreak and more like Graduation.”

Kanye returned to the spotlight at last weekend’s BET Awards, where he opened the show with “Power” while wearing $300,000 in jewelry.
