Only a mere two weeks removed from his latest album, The Life of Pablo, Kanye West already appears ready for the next one.
Earlier this week, the "Real Friends" MC revealed plans for a new album this summer and now we have a title. Taking to his favorite social media mouthpiece of Twitter last night (February 26), 'Ye announced the new LP will be called, Turbo Graphx 16.
My next album is titled "Turbo Grafx 16" as of now…— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 27, 2016
While the words "as of now" is a nice reminder that things are subject to change (Hello So Help Me God, SWISH, Waves), the incumbent title happens to be a nod to the popular '80s game console, which Ye, himself, noted as one of his favorite gaming systems growing up.

Following the announcement, the G.O.O.D Music captain also went on to drop a few jewels on the extent of his relationship to video games.
