Kanye West is contemplating making 52 records in 52 weeks, Jon Caramanica — The New York Times journalist who recently spent days interviewing the star — has revealed.

Speaking during a follow-up to his lengthy interview with West on NYT’s Popcast podcast, Caramanica said, "He said he wants to get a place in Wyoming [where West held a listening party for ye] and he thinks he wants to spend more time there. He told me at one point he wants to make 52 records in 52 weeks. Take that for what you will."

Whether he comes good on that ambition remains to be seen, but pumping out five albums as artist and/or producer in as many weeks — new efforts by Pusha-T, Nas, Teyana Taylor, his Kids See Ghosts collaboration with Kid Cudi, and, of course, ye — has clearly motivated West to set loftier goals for himself. And where better to focus on his music than quiet, distraction-free Wyoming — although he'll probably need to get his own place this time, as the ranch where he held his listening party no longer welcomes rappers.

Can Kanye make 52 records in 52 weeks? Or will this idea go the way of Sufjan Stevens’ 50 records about 50 states? Let us know in the comments.
