Mike Dean Hints At Kanye West ‘Yeezus’ Tour


Superproducer Mike Dean, who has worked extensively with Kanye West both in the past and on West’s new album Yeezus, took to Reddit yesterday for an AMA (Ask Me Anything), where he offered details on Kanye’s next moves since dropping the most highly-anticipated album of the year so far.

Dean—who is also well-known as a producer for much of the early-to-mid-1990s Houston hip-hop sound pioneered by UGK and Scarface, among others—was asked about Yeezy’s recent headlining performance at Governors Ball in New York City, and when prompted about a potential tour for Yeezus, he confirmed that one was in the works and that he would be a part of Kanye’s performance crew.

Yeezy has turned in a handful of performances of his new material, most notably at Gov Ball and on a recent appearance on “Saturday Night Live,” where he premiered both “New Slaves” and “Black Skinhead” from the new album. Yeezus dropped yesterday.
