Kanye West To Release 3-Hour Spoken Word Album?

    If you’re a fan or Kanye West’s iconic rants, his next album may be just for you.

    According to contactmusic.com, Kanye’s next release will be a 3-hour spoken word album. A source told contactmusic:

    ”Kanye loves the sound of his own voice and this will be the ultimate in self-indulgence.

    ”He has very strong views on everything from music and art to politics and the environment. He’s forever recording his opinions on tape.

    ”He says he’s doing it for posterity and thought about turning them into a book or even donating them to a museum.”

    Apparently there’s even plans for a vinyl release as well as a special 24-hour edition featuring rants on everything imaginable. As an admitted Ye Stan, I’m torn – part of me finds this all very hard to believe. There was already word that James Blake & Q-Tip were hard at work on the Yeezus follow-up. On the other hand, this odd and surely groundbreaking release is exactly the thing that Ye would do, something so off-the-wall and beaten path.

    I’m personally fine either way. In Yeezus I trust…as long as there’s a few rants like this…
