Being part of the celebrity crowd has its perks, and we’re not just talking about having an endless supply of money, fame and women. Sometimes those perks come in exclusivity. Just ask actor-comedian Seth Rogen, who recently was granted a private listen session of Kanye West‘s new album before anyone else.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, the funnyman said he heard a skeleton version of the new tracks when he was in New York. Rogan bumped into West at an unnamed hotel and was invited to join ‘Ye in his limousine van to hear the new material.
“There’s no lyrics, only beats,” he recalls. “So he raps the whole album, and after each song, he stops it, like, ‘So what do you think?’ We were in the van for two hours.”
However, Rogen wasn’t the only one who got to listen to the new tracks. Back in September, Theophilus London said he visited a Kanye West listening session and heard some of the new songs as well. He posted an Instagram photo with the Chicago rapper and producer, but said he was too inebriated to recall what everything sounded like.
“So shortly after this picture I only remember Kanye playing his new album three times in a dark room of 20 people last night, and moshing drunk with mad babes. Haha,” he wrote.
There’s no word yet on when Yeezy plans to drop his new album, but we are impatiently waiting for what his next move will be.
