Kanye West recently took to Twitter to announce the release dates of albums from Pusha T, Teyana Taylor and, of course, the GOOD Music mastermind himself (along with a collaborative project with Kid Cudi called Kids See Ghosts). Now, West has announced that he’s producing a new Nas album.

“I’m hand producing all the albums I tweeted about. Been chopping samples from the sunken place,” West wrote on Twitter Sunday evening. “Pusha May 25th My album June 1st me and Cudi June 8th and Teyana June 22nd and oh yeah…Nas June 15th.”

West and Nas have worked together before this forthcoming album. The Life of Pablo artist co-produced the latter’s “Poppa Was a Playa” off 2002’s The Lost Tapes, as well as contributed music to Nas’ film The Land.

However, not all of West’s tweets have been well-received. The rapper recently tweeted how he loves the way Candace Owens thinks. Owens is a Conservative YouTube pundit who has berated the Black Lives Matter movement, and has been compared to other Conservative pundits such as Tomi Lahren.

West faced backlash from a number of Twitter users following the tweet.

“White people like Candace Owens because she makes them feel nice and cozy about their racism. Kanye aligning himself with her is really sad,” one user wrote.

“It’s sad actually. For him and for her. A market has always and will always exist for men and women like this who say what bigoted white folk love to hear. They will always have a seat at somebody’s table,” Shaun King wrote.
