The demand for Kanye West's return has reached a fever pitch as the rapper recently surprised a crowd at a Kid Cudi concert earlier this month after laying low for several months. And in a new interview on the Grass Roots podcast, CyHi the Prynce -- an artist on West's G.O.O.D Music label -- revealed that Yeezy has been hard at work producing beats for all the artists on his label. 

CyHi is currently readying his debut LP, No Dope on Sundays, and revealed his plans to release "three to four more albums in the next 18 months," one of which will be produced solely by Kanye.

"I got a project I'm doing with Ye that's all produced by him -- he's doing it for every artist on the label," CyHi told Grass Roots hosts Brandon "Killa BH" Hall and Erin Simon. "[Big] Sean got one that will be executive produced by him. Pusha's next album is strictly produced by him. Teyana's [project] is strictly [Kanye]. Kid Cudi's strictly [Kanye]. He does, like, 10 beats a day."

CyHi even teamed up with Kanye for the No Dope On Sundays cut "Dat Side."

In a recent interview with Billboard, Pusha T also said that Kanye will be handling the production on his upcoming album King Push from "top to bottom" and serves as his own personal adviser. "I've been doing a whole lot of other things, and it just needed focused time. And then on top of that, when Kanye comes in, first of all, he A&Rs my album all the time. He will pick all of my beats. I'll rap to all of the beats, song's done. Then he will listen to it and say, "Hey, I can do all of these beats better.' It is Kanye West, and he's probably the greatest producer of all time. So if he's willing to take all of that time, then I can take my time."
