Kanye West busy on new compilation album

Kanye West is working hard on a new album featuring stars of his label GOOD Music.
Kanye West is a music making machine
Kanye West seems to be the hardest working hip-hop star in the music business right now as he puts the finishing touches to what is said to be one of the greatest collaborative records of recent times.

The rapper and producer extraordinaire has worked back to back on albums like My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and Watch The Throne, where he 'rocks the mic' with Jay-Z.

Following straight on from that is his all-star compilation album, which features artists from his GOOD Music label.

This includes Frank Ocean, Pusha T, Jay Electronica, Mannie Fresh and Big Sean.

The album also features the harmonious vocals of Marsha Ambrosius, who used to be in the R&B duo Floetry.

"In the studio with Frank Ocean, Big Sean, Pusha T, Manny Fresh :) Kanye West is on the way!!! I'm having fun today :) thx Che ;)," she tweeted.

"And @JayElectronica just arrived :) fun times in the studio - Kanye sessions Day 2 :)."

In other related news, a never before seen video of a young West performing before he was a star has surfaced online.

In the video, West, then 19, can be seen 'spitting' lyrics with the same aplomb he is known for today.
