The rapper, who has hit the headlines with his controversial posts on Twitter.com over the last few weeks, wrote on the website on Saturday (12Mar16), "No more fashion calendar... I'm going Mad Max... 6 collections a year... 3 albums a year."

He also revealed that he won't be releasing any more of his music on CDs, and will use streaming sites instead. "I was thinking about not making CDs ever again... Only streaming," he posted on Monday (07Mar16). "The Yeezus album packaging was an open casket to CDs r.i.p... uuuuuuum (sic), so there it is... No more CDs from me."

Kanye's latest release, The Life of Pablo, made its debut during his Yeezy fashion show in February (16), and Billboard.com reported that Def Jam and Universal Music Group were working with the rapper on ­possible release strategies for the album - with a physical version was due.

The announcement that he is increasing his workload over the coming years may come as a shock to wife Kim Kardashian, who has only recently given birth to their son Saint. The youngster, who was born on 5 December last year (15), recently made his online debut after his mother posted the first photo of him on her website.

"Today is my dad’s birthday. I know there’s nothing more in the world he would have wanted than to meet his grandchild. So I wanted to share this pic of Saint with you all," she captioned the photo of her son on 22 February (16).

Kim later shared another photo of her firstborn son, posting a shot of Saint on Instagram.com on Friday (11Mar16) with the caption, "You're the sun in my morning babe."
