Last week rapper Kanye West had already announced that he would be releasing a new album this summer, having just dropped his new The Life of Pablo album during New York Fashion Week earlier this month. In his latest Twitter rant the musician now confirmed again that the new album would be coming this summer and he already has a name for it too – TurboGrafx 16.

That is at least the name right now, as you all know he has publicly changed the name of his last album several times, so we are not betting much on this one yet.

In case you do not get the reference, the TurboGrafx 16 was a video game console released by NEC and Hudson in the U.S. in 1989, with the original 1987 Japanese name being PC Engine. The console never sold well, but had a cult following for its shooter games.
