Kanye West told GQ
he used an iPhone to record part of his Jesus Is King
album. "I just rap into my iPhone. Best microphone on the planet," he explained. "Thirty, forty percent of The College Dropout
was recorded on a [Roland] VS-1680. Twenty percent of Jesus Is King
was recorded on an iPhone."
West took some of his vocals for the album directly from his iPhone's Voice Memos app. "Yes. I first started doing that on Yeezus
," he said. "Like 'Closed on Sunday, you're my Chick-fil-A' - that part is off the phone."
