Rolling Stone saw itself making headlines days after it published one of the first reviews of Kanye West's forthcoming opus, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. The reason: Writer Rob Sheffield gave the record a perfect 5/5 rating in his review. I don't read the magazine that often anymore, if at all, so I can't say when a perfect score was given out previously. But anyway, Kanye has appeared in Rolling Stone again, this time for a quick interview that provides the following news on his collaborative album, Watch The Throne, with Jay-Z. Yeezy's thoughts on the record are as follows:
"It's going to be way more awesome than My Dark Twisted Fantasy," West says. "My growth in music production and mixing is retarded."
Apparently this means that we're not just getting some new music from Q-Tip, Madlib, and Pete Rock on Watch The Throne, but some of Kanye's better production. Wow, okay, can we get a solid release date on this album already?
