Kanye West’s ‘Black American Psycho’ Is A Hoax

    It was too good to be true. As we reported yesterday, a website under the name blackamericanpsycho.com (a domain initially thought to be registered to Def Jam) suggested that Kanye West was to release Black American Psycho (although it was unclear exactly what that was–rumors pointed to a new solo album) on Oct. 23.

    However, the site has since been updated and the original splash image has been replaced with a small confession from the owner. As it turns out, the site and its rapidly-distributed poster were a part of someone’s school project and is nothing more than fiction. Don’t we all feel stupid, eh?

    This website is in no way affiliated with Def Jam Records or Kanye West. The Black American Psycho title and the 10.23.2012 release date are fictitious. I created the website a while ago as part of a school project. I apologise for misleading people, I did not expect the site to generate so much traffic and be taken seriously.

    The title and release date may have been a hoax, but it isn’t all over for Kanye fans. The G.O.O.D. Music maestro is said to be working on his sixth studio album in Hawaii, where he also crafted his 2010 magnum opus MBDTF. ‘Ye has flown out a number of artists including Azealia Banks and those on his G.O.O.D. Music roster.
