New Kanye West Album Due In September
G.O.O.D. Music artist Big Sean has been the main source of information as it pertains to Kanye West's fifth album, still tentatively titled "Good Ass Job." Back in April, Big Sean tweeted the album would be released in June. Over the weekend, the rapper tweeted the album will now be available on September 14, the same day as his and Kid Cudi's albums.
"September 14, 2010 My album Finally Famous x Kanye West album Good A** Job x Kid Cudi album Man on the Moon pt 2 RT #GOODMUSIC," he announced over the weekend.
Uptown Records founder Andre Harrell first gave insight to the new date, when he tweeted, "went to kanye new soho liar to here his album,the college drop out has graduated n To full grown rap star. black strong .Sept 14 yazee!!!," last week.
The first single from the album, "Power," featuring Dwele, which samples rockers King Crimson, leaked last month and finds the Chicago native rapping again -- unlike the Auto Tuned singing of his last album, "808s and Heartbreak." The track has reached No. 45 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
Last night, Kanye West performed the song at the BET Awards, backed by a fake volcano and a video display behind him. As previously reported, "Good Ass Job" is said to feature production from the likes of Q-Tip, RZA and Pete Rock.
