… for a new Kanye West album, not another 808s & Heartbreak but a rap album. Ye hasn’t put one out since 2007s Graduation and with no new album scheduled for this year I must look to 2010 for a new West album. I can only hope he has something planned. Why the sudden need, well, Jay-Z’s BP3 leaked early and I wasn’t blown away. It made me think that I have not been blown away by a new album in a long time, THAT SUCKS. The only other album I’m excited for this year is Lupe Fiasco’s L.A.S.E.R.S., but that’s not coming until December and his stuff has a history of getting pushed back. So I’m left with the hope that Kanye is in the studio right now (we know for a fact Steve is, even though he wants us to shut it down). Four albums. Four classics.
And yes, I am listening to Kanye as I am writing this.
1. Late Registration (Heard ‘Em Say, Gone, Roses, Diamonds are Forever)
2. The College Dropout (Family Business, Two Words, Jesus Walks)
3. Graduation (Flashing Lights, Stronger, Good Morning, Can’t Tell Me Nothing)
4. 808s & Heartbreak (Welcome to Heartbreak, Heartless, Robocop)
For your listening pleasure my favorite all-time Kanye song - Family Business from The College Dropout.
