Mr West had originally planned on having a new album ready by 4th quarter 2009 and releasing the first singles around this time but overwhelming demand for his productions on Jay-Z and Rihanna’s current projects greatly detoured him. Kanye spent much of the year helping construct “The Blueprint III” and Rihanna’s “Rated R” which is scheduled to hit stored November 23rd!
Now that those two are pretty much taken care of he can turn his attention back to his much anticipated 5th studio album which is still untitled. The following artist are rumored to make appearances on the new album:
* Lady Gaga
* Kid Cudi
* Soulja Boy
* J Cole
* Lil Wayne
Beyonce is also rumored to have a featuring role on the new album but that’s still speculation at this point.
The hard details are still under wraps but we should start hearing new music by early 2010! It may be a bit longer than anticipated given extremely negative reactions to him slaying Taylor Swift at the VMAs last month… So negative that he had to cancel his appearance with Lady Gaga on the “Fame Kills” Tour which has been retitled and will now feature Kid Cudi instead…
